The lights are on
Shinji Mikami, who might be best known for creating the original Resident Evil games, is developing a new title in the survival horror genre.
This news comes from the latest issue of Famitsu, which details his first project at his new Tango Gameworks studio. The game doesn't have an official title yet. It's currently codenamed "Zwei," which means "2." Mikami says, however, the codename has nothing to do with the content of the game.
Mikami will serve as executive director, and although the game's platforms haven't been decided, he said it will probably be on HD consoles. Tango Gameworks was acquired by Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media in October 2010.
"I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror," he said. "I am being very hands-on to see that the quality is there." Concept art was revealed showing the feel and tone Mikami is going for. Click the image below for a full-sized image.
Mikami last worked on Shadows of the Damned, Vanquish, and God Hand.

I can wait to see what it will become.
Awesome news!! About time my favorite game genre starts getting back on track. Can't wait to see what Mikami is working on next.
Dude thats sweet.
Excellent news! Between the creepy pic and his pedigree I'm excited for where this may lead...
Gotta keep a close eye on this. Really hope it's gonna be the next big thing in survival horror.
i am very glad to hear this,only because i know Resident Evil is already at the point of no return.
Guess who has a keyboard and doesn't give a flying f**k..........

That's a pretty good thing to hear. Maybe we'll get another game in the genre worth the name.
This should be pretty cool :D
yes!! i cant wait to find out more about this.
Yes! I love survival horror and there certainly aren't enough of these kinds of games. Can't wait to see more about it.
Shadows of the Damned was an amazing game. Hoping he makes me crap myself, not even Dead Space made me jump. I'm not easy to scare at all.
If that is the tone and feel Shinji Mikami is going for with "Zwei," then I'm sold.
