First Project Zwei concept art

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.”
