Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was originally a very different game. Konami was initially pitched “Silent Hill: Cold Heart” by developer Climax Studios.

Cold Heart did retain some elements from Shattered Memories such as themes of ice and cold. However, mostly everything else was changed. Combat, for instance – something absent from Shattered Memories – was planned for Cold Heart. The game also wasn’t originally intended to be a reimagining of the first Silent Hill.

Konami producer Tak Fujii has left Konami. In terms of his work on Nintendo titles, he most recently helped develop Frogger 3D.

Fujii may best be remembered for his presentation at Konami’s E3 2010 conference. You can catch that below if you never saw it. It’s definitely worth a watch!
