It seems that Konami is keen on having Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima help guide the next (or a future) Silent Hill game into being. The veteran game developer revealed as much during the Eurogamer Expo's developer session (via Eurogamer), though it sounds like he'd prefer to take on more of a support role, if anything.
"In the past I've mentioned Silent Hill in interviews, and as a result of that the president of Konami rung me up and said he'd like me to make the next Silent Hill," Kojima revealed. He went on to admit that he's a "scaredy-cat when it comes to horror," but that he'd "love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I'd love to participate in that respect."
Too bad. There's some freaky stuff going on in those Metal Gear games. Just about every single boss character could easily double as a Silent Hill monster. I'd like to see Pyramid Head try to out-scare ANYONE from Cobra Unit.
