Horror Master Junji Ito 'In Conversation' with Hideo Kojima for New Horror Game


One of many hardest issues followers needed to involves phrases with in the course of the break up between acclaimed online game director Hideo Kojima and Konami was the lack of the in-production Silent Hills, which noticed Kojima workforce up with horror manga creator Junji Ito and Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro. As a substitute, Kojima went on to create the "strand" sport Dying Stranding, with Ito and del Toro going their separate methods (although having appearances in Dying Stranding).


Till now. Throughout an interview with Viz Media throughout [email protected], Junji Ito hinted at one other potential collaboration between Hideo Kojima and himself, explaining – by means of his translator, Junko Goda – "So, the straightforward reply isn’t any. Nevertheless, I do know director Kojima and now we have been in dialog that he may need a horror-based sport that he could also be doing, and so he has invited me to work on that, however there are not any particulars on it but."

Kojima has hinted over the previous yr by means of tweets that he's watching horror movies for inspiration "as to make the scariest horror sport." Although this doesn't 100% verify that Ito and Kojima are engaged on a horror sport collectively, or if it'll be based mostly off Silent Hills, however I'd wager my backbone one thing coming.
