In a recent interview with Bloody Disgusting, Guillermo del Toro discussed his frustrations about Silent Hills, the cancelled video game collaboration with Hideo Kojima. Del Toro says that it “makes no fucking sense at all,” blaming Konami’s “random” business decisions for Silent Hills getting cancelled. Del Toro told Bloody Disgusting that his team had hundreds of designs for the game and that they were really going “for the jugular” with Silent Hills‘ story.
“We had a great experience and had great story sessions with hundreds upon hundreds of designs. Some of the stuff that we were designing for Silent Hills I’ve seen in games that came after, like The Last of Us, which makes me think we were not wrong, we were going in the right direction. The thing with Kojima and Silent Hills is that I thought we would do a really remarkable game and really go for the jugular. We were hoping to actually create some sort of panic with some of the devices we were talking about and it is really a shame that it’s not happening. When you ask about how things operate, that makes no fucking sense at all that that game is not happening.” — Guillermo del Toro
It’s safe to say that many people share del Toro’s frustration with Konami, and I hope that Konami will change their minds and bring back Silent Hills. If they don’t, then I would like to see del Toro and Kojima create their own game through Kickstarter. What did you think of del Toro’s comments? Sound off in the comments below!
