Shinji Mikami aiming for "pure survival horror."

Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Software have launched a teaser site for Shinji Mikami’s new survival horror project, codenamed Zwei. Included is the first piece of concept art.

“Our latest project’s codename is “Zwei” and it is a survival horror game,” reads the teaser site. “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.”

Shinji Mikami, who is listed as the game’s director, also provided comment.

“I’ve found my focus and once again I’m striving for pure survival horror,” he said. “I am being very hands-on to see that the quality is there. Rest assured.”

    I am loving the eeriness within the concept art.

    I hope it’s “pure survival horror” as they claim, but I doubt about it, don’t get me wrong, survival horror is my favorite genre, so I find it hard to make me scared very well after playing so many of them, I would say Corpse Party is the best survival horror I had seen so far for this gen, and there’s so many reasons for that

    about the concept art, yes there’s some cool environments make you feel at least that it’s a real survival horror game (which exceeds my expectation about Tango’s game) and I’m glad for that, if Shinji Mikami is the executive director here, so I assume Ikumi Nakamura is the director? (she worked previously on Okami & Bayonetta)

    Just make it scary. The survival horror genre has suffered a lot lately.

    I’ve got to say, I don’t like this whole “announce a game, only show concept art” thing. First Suda-san, and now Mikami-san’s doing it. At least show me a screenshot or two, and I’ll be happy. ;)

    All I want from this game is to have an atmosphere of desperation and paranoia. The last game to do that was Haunting Ground and that came out in 2005!

    Something along the lines of the first Fatal Frame would be nice.

    What would be great is if we could get a HD Collection of Fatal Frame.

    good thing he works somewhere else.So glad he left Crapcom. I’m so tired of their shitty business practices.
