Hideo Kojima Reunited With Silent Hills Star Norman Reedus

Hideo Kojima, having escaped the clutches of the dastardly Konami, followed up his exhaustive world tour – which took him from JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot studio, to Sony’s Visual Arts Service Group for a bit of motion capture, and the Quantic Dream studio in Paris, France – with an impromptu meeting with Norman Reedus, the star-to-be of Kojima’s and Guillermo del Toro’s aborted Silent Hills.

The meeting of the two will, of course, spark fresh rumours that Reedus, Kojima, and del Toro are set to reunite to fill the gap left by Silent Hills’ cancellation, especially since Kojima has recently set up his own studio. The Silent Hill intellectual property – plus the Fox Engine that was used to produce P.T., the Silent Hills teaser – are both the intellectual property of Konami, so any team-up of the three would produce an entirely new game. If the reaction to P.T. is anything to go by, though, it would surely be well-received.

In an interview with IGN last year, following the cancellation of Silent Hills, del Toro expressed his desire to work with Kojima again. “I love working with Kojima-san,” he said. “We are still in touch. We are still friends and working into doing something together, but that’s not going to be [Silent Hills].”

“We were in the planning stages, and it’s a shame it’s not going to happen,” del Toro added, lamenting the lost game. “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.”

Kojima and del Toro are set to appear together at DICE Hall of Fame Awards on 18th February. Maybe we’ll get more hints about a future collaboration of the Silent Hills alumni then.
