The man behind such horrors like Resident Evil and the new Lollipop Chainsaw has something else up his sleeve of doom. Read on for the details.
Shinji Mikami, the creative mastermind behind the Resident Evil series and collaborator with Suda51 on Shadows of the Damned and the upcoming Lollipop Chainsaw is working on a brand spanking new survival horror title — that’s right, survival horror — codenamed Zwei. It was just unveiled in the latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, which also revealed that Mikami’s Tango Gameworks studio will be handling development of the title. Mikami has said in the past that he would only direct one final project after Shadows of the Damned, so there’s a very good chance this could be it.
Mikami will be teaming up with Skyrim dev Bethesda Softworks on the title that’s currently aiming at a painfully wide 2013 release window.
Zwei might not be the final title, but it could give us important clues as to what this game could be about. A quick perusal of the internet has taught us it means two in German, is the name of a Japanese band and, well, that’s about it. What it’s about is anyone’s guess. What do you think?
