Can't wait .

This and the last of us are my most anticipated games in 2013.

Hai.

From the Father of Survival Horror and Modern Third Person Shooters

... one can only expect greatness and awesomeness.

Shinji Mikami is a true master.

The first Resident Evil is technically a survival horror/ third person shooter game.

I wouldn't say the father of survival horror per se because Alone In the Dark came out way before hand and Mikami just refined his elements to make it playable. Not saying he doesn't deserve praise for what he's done just a little food for thought......

I said "Father of Survival Horror and Modern Third Person Shooters" because he coined the term "Survival Horror" and practically gave it definition and his standards that we know today. I can also call him Father of Zombie Survival Horror games to be more specific but it doesnt deduct to the fact that he started this subgenre

"The term "survival horror" was first used for the original Japanese release of Resident Evil in 1996, which was influenced by earlier games with a horror theme such as 1989's Sweet Home. The name has been used since then for games with similar gameplay, and has been retroactively applied to games as old as Haunted House from 1982."

Without his conventions who knows if the term or Survival Horror sub genre would even exist as we know it today.

Alone in the Dark, for all intents and purposes, wasn't known or made as survival horror to begin with. It was just made as an action adventure game. Alone in the Dark (1992) is considered a forefather of the survival horror genre, and is sometimes called a survival horror game in retrospect.

I hope this game is a return of golden days for Survival horror for next gen.

hot4play1240d ago

Agree.

I've been a huge RE fan since the 1996, but with the way things are going for the series, sad to say-- the Resident Evil series is (un)dead to me.

Hopefully Mikami's Project Zwei (along with The Last Of Us) can reinvigorate the Survival horror genre!

genius1240d ago

finally some news about it iam so exciting and i miss old days feeling with resident evil . i hop this game destroy and suprise all crapcom fools staff . canot wait

HarryMasonHerpderp1240d ago

Very excited for this.
Horror needs to make a comeback!
I've gone through an entire gen with a complete drought of the genre and it's killing me.

j-blaze1240d ago

and it's coming late this year so freaking excited! i have complete faith in Mikami, if anyone can revolutionize or bring survival horror to its former glory it's him, i just hope they don't use Bethesda's broken engine to make the game

So far in what I read on the site, the only thing Bethesda is really giving is his funding and their name to put on his project. Everything else is made by the Zwei team.
