Kojima and del Toro will host a keynote address at this year’s DICE Summit offering insight into their creative vision.
Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro were the video game dream team that almost was, and now it has been announced that the pair will share a stage at this year’s DICE Summit. In a session titled “A Conversation with Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro,” the pair will offer insight into their creative vision, and the driving force behind their artistic pursuits.
The session will be moderated by longtime gaming personality Geoff Keighley, who most recently was giving Konami the finger by telling everyone that the company barred Kojima from accepting an award for his own game. It will reportedtly ” revisit some of their fondest memories from their own individual careers as well as some of the pivotal moments from each other’s work that remain a constant source of inspiration,” according to the DICE Summit website.
What is really exciting about the pair sharing a stage is that del Toro stated last year that despite the Silent Hills fiasco, he was still collaborating with Kojima on a yet-unannounced project. The Summit seems like the perfect time to lift the veil on said project.
The event will take place from February 16-18, 2016, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
