He soon caught the eye of Hideo Kojima with his unique artistic sense and was named the Lead Character and Mech Artist for the METAL GEAR SOLID Series in 1998. He was also in charge of the Mech design for ZONE OF THE ENDERS (2001) and ZONE OF THE ENDERS: The 2^nd RUNNER (2003). In 2004, he participated in the production of “GODZILLA: FINAL WARS” as the Mech Designer.
Currently, he is in production as the Art Director of METAL GEAR SOLID V THE PHANTOM PAIN.
Pacific Rim opens July 12th, 2013, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
