Historically, Ni no Kuni has taken an almost Final Fantasy-style approach to sequels. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and its only-in-Japan counterparts, Dominion of the Dark Djinn for DS and Hotroit Stories for mobile devices, exist as one story. The console sequel, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, takes place many generations later, with any ties to the original basically functioning as fun Easter eggs.

It has been a very, very long time since we've seen anything from the Silent Hlil series, with a full decade having passed since the release of Silent Hill: Book of Memories on Vita--and an almost unbelievable eight years since PT gave fans hope for the Hideo Kojima-led reboot Silent Hills. Now, however, it appears we could finally be returning to Konami's legendary horror series, and it could be with multiple games. Here's what we know--including rumors--about the Silent Hill franchise's future, as well as what we hope to see as we head into Summer Game Fest and the other Not-E3 events in June. Multiple games?
