Mikami on The Evil Within and Dark Souls-style online - "maybe in DLC"

OXM UK: "Resident Evil creator on following From Software's multiplayer example." (PC, PS3, PS4, Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Why would people want online in this game when it's a horror game and after they call Capcom for putting it in RE. I know this is a different take on multiplayer/online play but still for being his first game to return to the survival horror routes I don't want to see any online interaction in this game at all

I know what you're saying and partially agree.
Horror is best as a single player experience, where its just you alone adsorbed into this world.

Although, as a huge fan of Dark Souls and how they changed multiplayer, that type of "invasion" aspect might add to the experience. For example, anyone who played the Souls games knows the terror and tension of doing well in a tough area (basically the whole game!) or waiting around for a summons sign, knowing that any second someone could invade you. Imagine that in Evil Within.

Its an interesting idea for game like Evil Within but i can understand the reluctance too.

I agree. I dont want mp in this gamea unless its dlc and that dlc is started after the game is gold. I want a solid first player game and I know Mikami-san can do this for us.
