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.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's also on PS4. Title can be misleading :D

PFFT1284d ago

Yes BUT since its an Xbox only website they wont be advertising for the Ps4 version only the Xbox one.

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.

XboxFun1284d ago

Yes, both games are coming out for the X1 and PS4.

Deadpoolio1284d 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-Quality1284d ago

Which sill wouldn't be true, since Outlast and Day Light are next gen horror games for PS4.

Transporter471284d ago (Edited 1284d ago )

Idk then. How about First Next Gen Survival Horror Game by Shinji Mikami.

Political correctness gone mad!

christocolus1284d ago

Nice didn't even know it was coming to xbx one he stated earlier i hope he uses kinect2 in a revolutionary way...

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.

christocolus1283d ago

wow....dude you should be a developer....if they do implement such ideas it would be freaking awesome.

Hate when some guys go around fooling others, this is also on ps4...
