First Look At Resident Evil Creator’s New Horror Game

Shinji Mikami, best known for creating Resident Evil, is gearing up work on a brand new survival horror game with his new studio Tango Gameworks. It’s codenamed “Zwei”.

The image above is very early concept art for the title. With Zwei, Mikami is supposedly committed to making a “pure” survival horror game.

“A true ‘survival horror’ game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear,” Shinji Mikami said in a statement provided to Kotaku. “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.”

Previously, Mikami indicated that he would be stepping down from game development after completing his next game. This is his next game.


  • Also means ‘two’ in German I believe.

    I will buy day one, just because it’s A: SHINJIFRIKKEN’MIKAMI !!!
    And B: It may be PURE survival horror… and maybe the last we ever get that isn’t a dodgy multi-player shooter, or all action, or a remake, ORANYTHINGOMG !!!

    I’d marry this man, I really would…

  • Finally a real Horror Survival.

    I hate how all so called “Horror Survivals” these days are basically shooters with “Survival Horror” tacked on and some gross monsters that go boo.


  • Excellent, the last couple of RE games have just been third-rate shooters riding on the success of the brand name…
