Longtime PlayStation fans will recognize 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 20th anniversary of the series, which has led some to expect a revival.
PlayStation Japan posted the following tweet, teasing the upcoming two-part celebration (click for a translation option):
The original Siren was published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PS2 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 infection that causes their eyes to bleed, become nearly immortal, and seek the blood of those unaffected. From there, things take a turn for the spiritual, involving both Christianity and Shinto Buddhism to varying degrees, in addition to unknown monsters called shibito.
