So Keiichiro Toyama has been tweeting a whole bunch of old pictures from tgs 2003, all of which involve Siren in some way - but the thing is, he's been using the hashtag #SIREN2013. It might seem a little soon after Gravity Rush/Daze last year, but is it possible we'll see a new Siren for PS4/3/Vita at TGS this year?

Goddamn I hope so, absolutely loved Blood Curse.

(Wasn't entirely sure if this was thread worthy but I didn't wanna bump anything and I thought the very few fans of the series at least ought to know).

Remaster or Vita port seems in the realm of possibility then.
We can only hope! But I don't think it's going to be teased with the director posting old debug and promotional pictures on Twitter :p

Well, when it was revealed that he was the designer of Gravity Rush he said for the Siren fans not to worry or something along those lines, so I don't think it's entirely unreasonable to expect a new title in the series some point soon.
I've been waiting on one since the day i've played Blood Curse and they indicted a fan contest to draw the most horrifying Yamibito. The winner would have been featured in the next game... that never came ( ;_;)

So is the second one really crap? I keep hoping they'll put the European localization up on the North American store or something. I liked the first one and was kind of pissed they never brought over the sequel, but I don't think I've ever actually heard anything good about it.

zomg.

Blood curse was the most underrated horror game of the last gen imo.

Super creepy , controls were a bit wonky , but a fantastic game.

Vita or Ps3 or Ps4 new siren - I REALLY HOPE SO

Edit ; Slime - i never got the play the 2nd either , but i heard it was actually really good

I've heard it's supposed to be the best one, actually. The original game didn't do terribly well critically or sales-wise, which probably killed any chances the sequel had of coming over.

It's personally my favourite one, it's not as hard as the original but retains the incredibly oppressive atmosphere. It's completely bizarre that it never came out in the US.

Hopefully he is working on Siren for PS4, that will be great.

Someone else in SCE Japan Studio can make a floating moe sequel for Vita owners (if there is a demand), but the master of horror games need to make horror games.

I would love to see a new Siren if true, preferably on Vita or PS4.

Just make it a LOT easier then Siren on PS2. That game was so hard I couldn't past the second level (which was still in tutorial mode) without a walkthrough. Everything else about the game was cool, except the difficulty.

If they make the sequel more like Blood Curse then that's definitely great.

I love the Siren games and Gravity Daze, the sooner we get new games for both franchises the better. Also I will love if the do something more with Gravity Daze, maybe an anime or manga, love the characters and the universe.

Bu-bu-but I want GRAVITY RUSH 2 :(

If his next game is not on Vita, I will cry even more.
I'm pretty sure that he's working on GR2

“Congratulations! Looking forward to a sequel,” said one fan.

“Thank you! I’ll do my best on the sequel” responded Toyama.

Another fan, to clarify, asked if that meant a sequel was in development. Toyama responded, “It’s a secret.”

But I guess we'll find out for sure next month since I figure that whatever he's working on will be revealed then.

I'm pretty sure Blood Curse is the only game to never get a damn price cut on PSN. Always wanted to try it, but, $40 always felt just too much. Hope this turns out to be legit, though.
