Shinji Mikami Is Taking His Survival Horror Genre and Playing Somewhere Else

Shinji Mikami is the creator of Resident Evil and, more or less, the modern survival horror game genre. Capcom, publisher of the Resident Evil games, has recently announced that the Resident Evil franchise will move away from its survival horror roots to stick with more traditional action games, like Resident Evils 4 and 5. So what’s a survival horror gaming pioneer to do?


Jump ship and make a survival horror game — a real survival horror game — for Bethesda, publishers of Fallout 3 and the Elder Scrolls games. Nice, right? All we know about the game is that it’s codenamed Zwei and the above image is some kind of collage of locations in the game. I don’t know if the spooky-looking house on the left-middle is a mansion or not, but I’m crossing my fingers. (Via The Escapist)
