Longtime PlayStation fans will recognise the name Siren, developed by a long-defunct offshoot of Japan Studio (Project Siren) and responsible for the three survival horror stealth games that comprise the trilogy. Sony is celebrating the series' 20th Anniversary, which has caused some to hold out hope for a revival.
PlayStation Japan posted the following Tweet, teasing the upcoming two-part celebration (click through for a translation option):
The original Siren was published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PS2 back in 2003 and tells the story of ten survivors of a supernatural apocalypse in rural Japan. Initially believed to be an earthquake, the majority of the population is infected with an infliction, causing them to bleed from the eyes, become almost immortal, and seek the blood of those not affected. From there, things take a turn for the spiritual, with both Christianity and Shinto Buddhism being involved to various degrees, in addition to undead monsters called shibito.
