Hideo Kojima Sounds Off on Why You Should See “Pacific Rim”


by on July 6, 2013

In case the trailers, graphic novel prequel, or limited edition Odd City prints hadn’t sold you on Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming giant robots vs. giant monsters magnum opus Pacific Rim, maybe Hideo Kojima will. The outspoken video game designer and creator of the Metal Gear Solid franchise took to Twitter today to offer up some thoughts on del Toro’s latest labor of love. Just how much did Kojima-san enjoy it? Let him tell you in his own words.


Strong words coming from the Metal Gear Solid creator, which is notable for mammoth mechs, silly names, and over the top action in its own right. Logically, the next step is to have Kojima and del Toro collaborate on something, so that millions of nerds – myself included – can die happy.

Are you excited for Pacific Rim? Let us know in the comments below!
