Kojima and Del Toro are Still Working Together

Konami may be going through a spat with Hideo Kojima, but that isn’t stopping him from working with Guillermo Del Toro on a new project.

According to an interview with IGN, Del Toro and Kojima are still in touch and plan on creating something together. That something will just unfortunately not be Silent Hills, because Konami.

During the same interview Del Toro shared more about Silent Hills since it’s canceled. From his statement Konami may have spared us some psychological trauma. Del Toro mentions the Psycho Mantis moment in Metal Gear Solid and the game interacting with the player.

“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.”
