From developing the SNES adaptation of Aladdin to a whole new world — Shinji Mikami became the king of survival horror. During your weekend, head to Polygon and read Matt Leone’s feature, “Shinji Mikami and the Fountain of Youth”. The article chronicles his career and focuses on the youth movement he believes is important for the success of Tango Gameworks and the games they develop.
As announced last week, Mikami’s latest game, The Evil Within, releases this summer on August 26th in North America and across Europe on August 29th
Announced today, we’re happy to share news that The Evil Within, the new survival horror game from Tango Gameworks (led by Resident Evil’s Shinji Mikami) will release on Tuesday, August 26th in North America and three days later (August 29th) in Europe.
To celebrate the occasion, for the first time we’re showcasing the game’s final packaging in the Vine above.
We’ve got much more coming on The Evil Within. Discuss the game in our forums and be on the lookout for news and updates on our Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter accounts.
This week on the NVIDIA GeForce Facebook page, fans have an opportunity to win one of seven The Evil Within posters — signed by Shinji Mikami (center, Game Director), Naoki Katakai (right, Art Director), and Masato Kimura (left, Producer) — as part of their 14 Days of GeForce sweepstakes.
In addition to the posters, one lucky winner will receive a MAINGEAR Rush PC powered by a EVGA GeForce GTX 780, while two others will win the GeForce GTX 780 card.
Working with director Kyle Cooper, the famed designer known for his award-winning work on title sequences for film and television including Se7en, American Horror Story, and The Walking Dead, the trailer captures and communicates the game’s tone.
We’re excited to lift the curtain on The Evil Within — the upcoming survival-horror game from legendary developer Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4) and our Japanese studio, Tango Gameworks.
Last week, IGN got to see the game in action, and you’ll be learning more about the game beginning on Monday. Until then, head to their site and watch the premiere of the game’s seriously terrifying live-action trailer.
Slated for release in 2014, stayed tuned to Bethesda Blog for updates and follow the game on our other social media sites.
In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Tango Gameworks executive producer Shinji Mikami announced that the studio’s first project, codenamed “Zwei”, will return Mikami-san (the creator of Resident Evil) to the survival-horror genre.
Our latest project’s codename is “Zwei” and it is a survival horror game.
The above image is a collage of different environments we put together for this announcement and is intended to give a feel for the tone and the direction the production is taking. (However, neither the code name nor the image is intended to tell you exactly what is in the game.)
As a master of the ‘survival horror’ genre, Shinji Mikami is committed to making a game that is the realization of pure survival horror, an experience which he defines as one that pushes the limits of fear and exhilaration. He and his team at Tango are committed to attaining this vision.
Here on the blog, we’ll keep you posted on the latest developments from Tango. You can also follow them on their official website, Twitter, and Facebook. Those interested in applying at Tango should visit the ZeniMax job page.
