News: Zwei, the new survival horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, will be classic and “pure” survival horror, he says.
We reported the other day that Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is working on a new survival horror game. Now, “new survival horror game” leads to many a raised eyebrow these days, so I imagine a lot of people will be happy to know that Mikami’s committed to making something classic and true to the genre.
With his studio Tango Gameworks, he’s making a title that focuses on survival, fear and dread – as he explained today.
“A true survival horror game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear,” he said. “I’ve found my focus and once again I’m striving for pure survival horror. I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured.”
Not much is known about Zwei yet – not even its final name – but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we know anything.
