Kojima Reveals Junji Ito on Canceled Silent Hills|
Silent Hill is a horror masterpiece whose its reboot was supposed to include the likes of Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Toro, Norman Reedus, and now Junji Ito, a master horror manga creator known for Uzumaki, Tomie, and Gyo.
We all know that the Silent Hill’s reboot project has been scrapped by Konami. Silent Hills gained a lot of hype before the company pulled the plug on it, with a free-to-play teaser game called P.T., which yet suffered another cancellation. Knowing that Ito would have been involved in the game made it harder for fans to mourn.
Kojima confirmed it on his tweet when he was on a meeting with Ito.
