Hideo Kojima & Guillermo Del Toro Team Up For New Silent Hill Game

Yeah, this is actually happening. Classic horror game series Silent Hill is back, with Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and famed horror movie director Guillermo del Toro involved. Walking Dead TV show actor Norman Reedus is the star. It was revealed in the form of an interactive teaser on the PlayStation Store.

The video shows a man who turns out to be actor Norman Reedus on a darkened street before revealing the the names of Kojima and del Toro. He looks at the camera, and then the Silent Hill logo appears.

So this kinda came out of nowhere, huh? Well, not entirely. An allegedly terrifying demo called P.T. was announced and released during Sony's Gamescom conference, and people flocked to the PS Store to download it. It turned out to be a teaser for this mega-project, as opposed to a demo for a new horror series as everyone first suspected.

The whole stunt is very much in line with Kojima's penchant for bait-and-switches, mostly recently seen with Metal Gear Solid V's "The Phantom Pain" reveal gag.

This isn't Guillermo del Toro's first crack at game development, either. He was set to head up a much-hyped but never seen horror game called Insane before publisher THQ became a madhouse (and then not a house at all) due to money troubles.
