Resident Evil and Vanquish creator
Shinji Mikami is tapping into his creepier side for his first game
with Tango Gameworks, the newest addition to ZeniMax's family of
studios (read: Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami joins Bethesda at ZeniMax). In an interview with Japanese website Sokuho (translated by Andriasang), the industry veteran revealed the new game is will fall into the survival horror category, and is currently being developed
under the codename “Zwei”.
“I've found my focus and once again
I'm striving for pure survival horror,” wrote Mikami in Tango's website update. “I'm being very hands-on to see that the quality is
there. Rest assured.”
Tango Gameworks posted a
conceptual collage for Zwei, hinting at some of the game's atmosphere
Mikami said he selected the survival
horror genre in order to live up to his fans expectations, and
because it was one wherein he felt “most adept”. Few details were
given about the actual game, except that planning started in 2010 and
it will mostly likely be released for HD consoles. As for the name,
Mikami explained it means the number 2, but that it really has
nothing to do with the game's content.
More pics and info are expected
shortly. While we wait, let us know what you think about Mikami
returning to his horror origins.
