This upcoming Tuesday for the PlayStation Store is getting scarier and scarier! Siren, a horror title that was originally on the PS2, will be put on the PSN as a PS2 Classic. It will be available for download on January 15th (though no price has been stated yet).
Siren takes place in the mountain village of Hanuda, where a "Siren" calls and transforms residents into undead shells of their former selves. As one of ten playable characters, you'll "Sightjack" (see through the eyes of accomplices and enemies) to stay alive and learn how your paths are connected.
Former executive producer and vice president of Sony's Japan Studio, Takafumi Fujisama, reminisces about Siren:
"We were on a mission to formulate a form of fear or horror that would resonate with an audience regardless of their cultural background, and to deliver that from a very intentionally Japanese perspective. ... The feeling of hopelessness caused by close ones, who, one by one are transformed into your enemy, the dreadful or creepy feeling of seeing yourself through the eyes of others, and an environment unique to SIREN that pulled you right in all led to the bloodcurdling experience that only a game could take you through."
Will you be purchasing Siren when it hits the PS Store next Tuesday?
