Development On Slitterhead Is "Nearing Its Climax"

Development on Slitterhead, the action-horror that we haven't seen or heard from since its initial reveal back in 2021, is apparently "nearing its climax".

During The Game Awards 2021, one of the most interesting games to be revealed was Slitterhead, the next game from Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama and his studio Bokeh Game studio. After its impressive first trailer, we heard a little more about it through a Q&A in the same month, but things have largely been quiet since then.

That doesn't seem like it'll be the case for too long, however. The latest issue of Famitsu, which has been translated by Gematsu, features some of the biggest Japanese gaming developers sharing their ambitions for 2023, which in most cases means giving a little tease at what's to come for whatever game they're making.

One of the most interesting comments comes from Keiichiro Toyama, who revealed that Slitterhead's development has nearly been completed. Toyama said, "Production on Bokeh Game Studio’s premiere title, Slitterhead, is nearing its climax". Slitterhead's initial reveal trailer didn't give any kind of release window or timing, but with this comment in mind it seems likely that it's yet another big game to look out for in 2023.

Although we haven't seen Slitterhead in some time, we know that Bokeh Game Studio was initially founded in August 2020 and likely started on Slitterhead shortly after being founded, which would mean that Slitterhead has been in development for close to three years. It's a little strange that we've only ever gotten one trailer from it despite it apparently nearly being out, but perhaps that's better than countless trailers.

There aren't too many details out there about what we can expect from Slitterhead, but Toyama did say this when talking about it last year, "I wanted a game that could be enjoyed for its action, yet whose concept doesn’t solely revolve around killing enemies. It conflicts with the mind, making the players reluctant to enter certain fights. I want to achieve both action and drama with this game.
