Somebody pinch me. If it wasn't official, I honestly wouldn't have believed this report for a second; it's simply way too awesome. It's true though, Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima, easily two of the weirdest (in the best way possible) artists in their respective fields, are going to collaborate on the next Silent Hill game.
