The lights are on
Shinji Mikami has expressed interest in creating his own sandbox game.
Inspired by his love of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (above), Mikami has indicated an interest in the open-world genre beyond that of a fan. He told magazine PSM3 that he thinks his love of the game stems from the depth of gameplay common to the genre and the fact that "There are very few... It's not like there are dozens of them yet."
Mikami states that if he did create his own open-world game it would be smaller: "We don't have hundreds of staff, so I'd keep it simple. I'd introduce one major rule, but within that you'd be free to play it however you like. It would be a game that mixes the best of the old kind of games with this relatively new open-world concept."
Being that Mikami's Tango Gameworks studio has been purchased by Bethesda owners ZeniMax, you can bet he'll get to study the genre from one of its masters. Regardless of size limitations, an open-world game with Mikami's creative power behind it would definitely be worth playing.

Like Skyrim, but with horror. It would be amazing.
It sounds fine to me.
i just hope that if it is a form of "sand box" game then it doesnt have that annoying realistic mode that dead rising had where you had to eat to survive....i just want to kill zombies without having to eat or put up with dead island :(
Someone is stepping out of their comfort zone. :D
i'm all for this. but please don't use gamebryo or it's slighlty modified name changed skyrim cousin.
He should get to work on that.
A Mikami game is always worth playing, regardless of genre and other stuff. He's super AWESOME! :D
I'd totally check out a Mikami open world game. I have to wonder what he would do with it.
I'd play it.
Think GTA meets Skyrim in London a'la 28 Days Later... It'd be sweet!
That would not fit with res controlls, but it would be for fun
sounds great to me i love open world games ... now i just hope for it to not be zombie filled , post apocalyptic , or medieval-fantasy setting ... i love hat we have these days but lets go for a change
sounds good to me...
That would be a cool game.
An open-world zombie game would be amazing!
Yay Shinji Mikami and open-world games.
Bring it on!!! I love sand box games and would be interested to see if he puts an RE spin on it or not.
I would play it so much! Great idea and if its based on RE it reminds me of the game Dead Frontier which is online for free.
