Guess who’s reuniting?

At the DICE Awards on February 19, Guillermo del Toro will induct Hideo Kojima into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) Hall of Fame.

Previously, del Toro worked with Kojima on the ill-fated Silent Hills game, which was cancelled by Konami. The experience turned del Toro off games.

“I have decided, in order not to destroy anyone else’s life, I have decided I will never again get involved in video games. Otherwise, I’ll join someone and his house will explode, or something,” he jokingly said, referring to the cancelled game projects he’s been a part of.

The award will be presented during the 19th D.I.C.E. Awards ceremony at the Mandalay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Kojima is the 21st person to be added to the Hall of Fame.
