Horror Manga Creator Junji Ito Discusses Involvement With Cancelled Silent Hills Game

P.T. Silent Hills Hideo Kojima Junji Ito

When it was revealed that Hideo Kojima was teaming up with Guillermo del Toro to create Silent Hills at Konami, fans could not contain their excitement. However, when that project was axed, the disappointment was immeasurable. That said, horror manga creator Junji Ito recently discussed his involvement with the title, probably making fans even sadder than they were.

Ito is probably best known for the likes of Uzumaki or The Enigma of Amigara Fault, but as it turns out, he was also set to design the monsters that would have been featured in Silent Hills. Unfortunately, it didn’t pick up steam and Ito’s involvement with the project boiled down to a free ticket to see Pacific Rim and a night of karaoke. Ito recently spoke at the Toronto Comics Art Festival, and thanks to a transcription from Twitter user “MinovskyArticle,” we know what was said.

It’s definite unfortunate that nothing ever came of the Silent Hills game, outside of the P.T., but here’s to hoping something with the franchise happens in the relatively near future. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
