We may soon witness one of the most promising collaborations in the history of the gaming industry. Junji Ito, a world-renowned mangaka and creator of cult horror series such as Uzumaki or Tomie, may soon establish cooperation with Hideo Kojima. It is also possible that this has been going on for some time. It was all about an interview Mr. Ito gave during the ongoing Comic Con 2020 event, more specifically about a question about his potential work on a video game, to which he answered with the following words:
“I know Hideo Kojima and we had a recent conversation about a horror production he is going to be working on right now. He offered me cooperation on this project, but so far I cannot reveal more details. " - Junji Ito confessed
The artist's statement is not sufficient to confirm this cooperation, but it is definitely worth attention. Both authors have repeatedly confirmed that they are able to deliver a complete and engaging story shrouded in darkness, so the fruits of their potential cooperation can be an absolute hit on the market. The very moment of announcing this type of information also does not seem to be accidental. Any moment, the animated adaptation of Uzumaki from Junji Ito will see the light of day, and at the same time, Kojima is successfully conquering the PC market with the excellent port of Death Stranding. It is definitely worth keeping an eye on the development of the situation, as soon we will know more details on this matter.
