Konami has announced today that Silent Hill 3, the latest title in the popular horror series, will be released for the PS2 on May 23rd. Several weeks before the Japanese and US release. Heres a little bit of info about the game from todays Press Release:

    Initially moving away from the mist-shrouded streets of the first two games, Silent Hill 3 focuses on a new female character. Heather, a gentle teenager, is on a trip to her local shopping centre when her life is turned upside down. As she prepares to leave, the shops and brightly lit walkways are transformed into a dark, brooding place where eerie noises echo around the empty corridors and where misshapen creatures can be glimpsed fleetingly amidst the shadows.
