What's the Slitterhead release date? Slitterhead is a brand-new IP revealed during The Game Awards 2021, and headed up by Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama. Its presentation was part scary and part surreal, with the trailer certainly making a mark on viewers and Silent Hill fans. For all the latest information on the upcoming Slitterhead, here's our breakdown of everything we know so far, including the release date, gameplay, and trailer.

Slitterhead: Release Date

Right now, there's no release date for Slitterhead, and it seems a long way off. In an interview with IGN after The Game Awards 2021, the lead on the project, Keiichrio Toyama stated, "We are currently preparing to complete the verification of the prototype’s core concept, and then we will increase the size of the team and start full-scale production. We’ll be committed to production until at least the end of 2022, but we will keep our fans informed with updates as development progresses."

Obviously, this means the game could be release in 2023 at the earliest, and we'd expect it to release late that year or in 2024.

Slitterhead: Trailers

The only trailer to be released for Slitterhead was its reveal trailer. It shows off some interesting scenes that have many of us puzzled by the game's direction. The trailer begins with some text that states: "In 1999, Keiichiro Toyama chose horror as the genre for his first directorial work. Silent Hill was released to the world. In 2020, he went independent and founded Bokeh Game Studio. And he came back to face a new challenge in horror."

Evidently the new challenge is Slitterhead, and as the trailer continues we see a scene of a man walking down an alley before a woman steps out of a door, catching his attention. She then suddenly morphs into some horrific monster as her body contorts, and her bones elongate, casting a shadow on the wall of her true appearance.

We then get a montage of scenes over a thumping soundtrack, as the body horror monstrosities attack over people and cause chaos across the streets of the city this game takes place in. It appears to be more action-focused than the Silent hill games, and tonally it seems surreal - but it's got our interest. 

Slitterhead: Gameplay And Story

While the trailer didn't show us much in terms of gameplay or story, in his interview with IGN, Keiichiri Toyama elaborated a little on the game. "I can't go into a lot of details yet," he stated, "but I can tell you that this story will be an action-oriented adventure game from a third-person perspective. However, the game will include many new mechanics that have not been seen so far in other games, so I think it will result in a unique experience."

Toyama did reveal a little about the game's setting, claiming it's in a fictional Asian city that is inspired by 1980s and 1990s Hong Kong, and mentioned a large aspect of the game will be trying to identify which people are secretly monsters, which will have ramifications in the gameplay and story. 

Narratively, he didn't give much concrete to go on, but did talk on the themes, stating, "the game will explore life and death and the process of decay throughout everyday life, so inevitably some of the developments and visuals will be quite shocking." Continuing, "Although it is a horror game, we aim to make a game that is entertaining on a wide range of levels, with a story filled with mystery and new types of action gameplay."

Slitterhead: Platforms

What platforms Slitterhead will be released on is currently undecided, but Toyama did include that they "hope to reach as many players as possible while maintaining the essence of the game." Based on what it will likely release, we expect it to launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and select PC storefronts.
