Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro Talk Collaboration, Horror

 

Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro have spoken openly about their plans to collaborate in the past, and the duo is still very interested in partnering on something.

Kojima reaffirmed his enthusiasm for working with del Toro, saying “of course” he’d love to work “on a game, a movie, I don’t care, we’ll do it.”

Guillermo del Toro said he’s done with game development “except with this man,” referring to Kojima. “I’ll do whatever the fuck he wants.”

“I feel extremely free right now,” Kojima said. “I’m trying to make a big, very edgy game with a small team…I have to do something that’s exactly what I want to do.”

del Toro emphasized the importance of freedom paired with ambition, explaining that “success can be defined as ‘fucking up on your own terms.”

Hideo Kojima formed an independent studio following his dramatic separation from Konami. Catch up on that with IGN’s Kojima/Konami timeline. Following the cancelation of Silent Hills, Kojima told IGN at DICE that he’d still love to work with The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus.

The Metal Gear Solid director is also fascinated by the potential of VR horror and the notion of “displeasure.”
