Konami have announced that Silent Hill: Book of Memories will be released for the PlayStation Vita in Europe on November 2nd.

The game is being developed by WayForward and marks the first appearance of the acclaimed horror series on PlayStation Vita. The game also introduces multiplayer elements to the series for the first time, as players work together within the mist-shrouded areas of the titular town.

Once players start the game they will select a customisable character. The player then receives a book which, it transpires, has the power to change the past. The action takes the form of a skewed top-down adventure with the emphasis on action and exploration. Players are given the challenge to solve a series of tests and puzzles which rewards them with puzzle pieces that are needed to access the next area.

Classic Silent Hill elements and adversaries also make a welcome return as the player finds out more about the book, and in multiplayer mode players work together in a quest to gather the puzzle pieces and conquer the huge boss creatures which punctuate the gameplay. Silent Hill: Book of Memories also allows players to share Items between characters, including items which restore lost health and also boost endurance.
