Years ago, when I was working at Konami, friends of mine were hard at work on Hellboy: The Science of Evil. While the game itself didn’t come out the way the people wanted, due to a number of factors, one thing was clear: Guillermo del Toro loves video games.
Both him and Mignola were passionate about the plot of the game. Now, del Toro is taking that passion into his own works. He told MTV he’s working on several video game projects with a major publisher.
Given the visual prowess of his movies, it will be interesting to see what eye candy he’s able to come up with. Even his mediocre movies (Blade 2) were phenomenal to look at.
