Lost Memories Silent Hill Chronicle - page 003 - introduction
The town known as Silent Hill.


It's well-established as a scenic tourist spot, but its history of abolishing the indigenous peoples, carrying out brutal executions, and the spread of a mysterious plague has tainted the land.

A dense fog always veils the area, flowing from Toluca Lake in the heart of town, blurring its visitors' perceptions of fantasy and reality.

And depending on the perceiver, "things" that shouldn't exist appear to be visible.

Before now, a number of events have happened in the town, leaving behind more mysteries that have never been answered.

So finally, it's time for us to go over everything and put these mysteries to rest.

その町の名は、サイレントヒル


風光明媚な観光地として知られるが
かつては、先住民族の排斥や、残虐な処刑、
そして、謎の疫病が流行した呪われた土地であった

町の中心にあるのは、トルーカ湖
町には常に、湖からの深い霧が立ちこめ
訪れる人々の現実と夢を曖昧にしてしまう

そして、見る者によっては、
本来、存在するはずのない”もの”が
見えてしまうこともあるという

これまでに、この町で起きてきた
いくつかの出来事は、
あまりにも多くの謎を残したまま、放置されてきた

今、ここで、そのすべてを振り返り、
一つ一つの謎を解き明かしていこう
