Silicon Knights has had a torrid time in recent years: after years of development, its first Xbox 360 game Too Human met a tepid critical and commercial reaction, and its most recent release X-Men Destiny didn't fare much better. Things weren't always like this, though: the studio did a great job with Konami revamp Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, but there's only one title Nintendo fans associate with the Canadian developer — Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem.

Despite vast amounts of love for the original, it's never seen a follow-up, but our hopes are up again after a Silicon Knights spokesperson had this to say recently:

The company is currently refocusing and returning to its roots, working on one of its most requested titles for the next generation.

While nobody's mentioned the name Eternal Darkness 2, it seems the most likely candidate for a next generation revamp and a perfect fit for the Wii U controller — or, even better, the Wii Vitality Sensor.
