Kojima and Del Toro planning to work together after Silent Hills’ cancellation


With Konami pulling the plug on Silent Hills, fans were shocked. (Well, if you’ve been following the whole Kojima/Konami drama, then you might have seen this coming.) Director Guillermo del Toro was excited to work on the project with Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, and fans thought the collaboration was going to end there after it was revealed that the project was cancelled. We got some good news! Kojima and del Toro will be working on a new project, and it’s not Silent Hills.

During an interview with IGN, del Toro said, “I love working with Kojima-san. We are still in touch. We are still friends and working into doing something together, but that’s not going to be [Silent Hills].”

Silent Hills had a lot of potential, and del Toro had a lot of cool ideas and mentioned how he wanted to mess with people’s head like how Kojima did with Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid.

“We were in the planning stages, and it’s a shame it’s not going to happen,” del Toro said. “We were talking about really pushing the boundaries of the new consoles, and making the game really mess with your head. One of the great moments in Metal Gear [Solid] was Psycho Mantis. The idea that a game can actually interact with you, and stuff like that.”

Even though Silent Hills is no more, the thought of Kojima and del Toro working together again brings hope for those wanting a somewhat similar experience. Let’s hope we still get Norman Reedus as the main character.
