Silent Hill 2 Gets Original Voice Actors For HD Collection

Good news for die-hard Silent Hill 2 fans, as Konami has confirmed that you'll be able to switch on the original voices for the game in the Silent Hill HD Collection, meaning you can either play it with the remastered 'modern' voice performances, or enjoy the original recordings from 2001.
Unfortunately, the same has not been settled on for Silent Hill 3, as the actress who voiced the game's heroine Heather Morris, has been unavailable to sign a waiver to grant permission to use the original recordings. "Producer Devin Shatsky and I have been striving to make this a reality for some time, and it’s exciting to have created the definitive SH2 experience. We would like to thank all of the original voice cast as well as Jeremy Blaustein, who were all instrumental in making this happen. Unfortunately, due to factors both technical and logistical, Silent Hill 3 will be presented with new voices only," reads a post on the Silent Hill Facebook page from Konami's Tom Hulett.
"Konami and Hijinx are working hard to make Silent Hill HD Collection a valued piece of Silent Hill history," adds Hulett. "and hope fans new and old look forward to its release in January."
