Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro will join each other on stage during the 2016 DICE Summit where they will discuss their “creative vision” and what drives their “artistic pursuits.”


The session is fittingly titled “A Conversation with Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro,” and the talk will be moderated by Geoff Keighley.

According to the description of the talk, those attending the session will hear Kojima and del Toro discuss some of their “fondest memories from their own individual careers,” and touch upon some of the “pivotal moments” from each other’s work which provide each a “source of inspiration.”

“A Conversation with Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro” is the Thursday afternoon Keynote Address for the event which runs February 16-18 in Las Vegas.

While at DICE, Kojima will be inducted into AIAS Hall of Fame and the award will be presented by his friend Guillermo del Toro.

The Metal Gear Solid creator and his Kojima Productions studio recently went independent and it’s first project is development for PC and is a PS4 console exclusive due to a deal with Sony. Kojima and PS4 architect Mark Cerny are currently visiting various tech and game studios looking at motion-capture and other development technology.
