Director Guillermo Del Toro — an avid gamer — expressed some interest in creating a video game adaptation of his latest film, ‘Pacific Rim’, at a Qualcomm-sponsored E3 screening earlier this week.

“We are thinking if, God willing, the movie connects with an audience to create a game properly and take proper time, three years minimum, to create a video game that can expand the world,” he said. “When you think about other mediums, the mistake Hollywood makes, I think, is to think of these things as a concept that was 1980s, which was ancillary product. In reality, however modest the multimedia thing may be, it should be trans-media.”

Gargantuan mechs battling giant monsters? I can’t imagine that will translate well to the realm of video games! I haven’t seen the film, but I am more than okay with this, so long as he gives us InSANE first.

          I’ve read that one is already in the works, and that it’s like the Live Arcade Reel Steel game, which may not be that great…
