The Evil Within: Shinji Mikami on the creation of Xbox One's first horror game

OXM:Shinji Mikami is a man of few words. Compared to the loquaciousness of most Western developers and executives eager to reel off their latest marketing pitch, he's almost mute - possibly because his CV speaks for itself. After creating the original Resident Evil and with it the genre of survival horror, he oversaw some of Capcom's most cherished - if not most successful - releases, including Viewtiful Joe and Killer 7, as well as one-time Resi spin-off Devil May Cry. (Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within, Xbox One)

It's also on PS4. Title can be misleading :D
PFFT  +   803d ago
Yes BUT since its an Xbox only website they wont be advertising for the Ps4 version only the Xbox one.
XboxFun  +   803d ago
I hope this game brings back that Resident Evil 2/Silent Hill 2 type of horror and suspense back to gaming.

Title is not misleading since this story is featured on an Xbox site.

Yes, both games are coming out for the X1 and PS4.
Deadpoolio  +   803d ago
Yes actually it is misleading...It does kind of read that it's a One80 exclusive when it's actually multiplat...They don't have to mention Sony by name but there really is no reason to ignore it being multiplat

Should say creation of the First Next Gen Horror Game.
CGI-Quality  +   803d ago
Which sill wouldn't be true, since Outlast and Day Light are next gen horror games for PS4.
Transporter47  +   803d ago
Idk then. How about First Next Gen Survival Horror Game by Shinji Mikami.

I agree,

There could be some great implementations

Such as controlling the tempo of the music based on heart beat.

Imagine if they matched our heart rate to vibrations in the triggers!

Waiting for a moment when you look away from the screen to pull a shocker on you.

Fitting dialogue based on our expressions, like... "oh you think that's funny?" or "Wipe that smile of your face" etc etc.

The possibilities are immense, here's hoping.

wow....dude you should be a developer....if they do implement such ideas it would be freaking awesome.
Doghead  +   803d ago
Hate when some guys go around fooling others, this is also on ps4...
Don't spread lies
HmongAmerican  +   803d ago
When he mention The Ring I know he might be on to something. I love Japanese horror films so this is a good thing for me.
Deadpoolio  +   803d ago
Except the ring wasn't good.....Neither the Japanese original or the god awful American adaptation the Ring 2 was even worse
