GameXplain: "The first screenshots for Shinji Mikami's new survival-horror game are in, and they look beautiful! The two images below feature a collage of environments from the game, and they look fantastically creepy."
Whoa, those look more intense than Resident Evil.
I 2nd that.
Yeah, Capcom should hire again Shinji to put back in the track Resident Evil.
It might just be me, but nowadays what doesn't look more intense than resident evil? Anyway, they look like pretty creepy settings so who knows, this could be good.
Agreed. RE has not been the "intense atmosphere" parameter for a long time, specially since Code Veronica day-light action (although still good game). Arguably Silent Hill holds the best atmosphere prize since forever... But this screens, hoping for the best, might put an end to that.
I could see those as screens from a Shadows of the Damned 2. Anyone else get the vibe the style is similiar and could represent a sequel?
I'm playing SotD at the moment and I agree that the art seems similar. The fact working title is Zwei (2 in German) also adds to that theory. However it does say this is a survival-horror game and SotD most definately isn't.
SOTD is an IP that is owned by Grasshopper. This new horror ip is in complete control by Mikami so this game will definitely be great.
It gives that 'Call of Cthulu' vibe looking at those screens.
I concur. Those are some amazing looking shots or concept arts. Defintely has vibes of Lovecraftanian horror. Let's just hope the game is truly frightening.
Someone needs to learn the difference between screenshots and concept art.
I hope this game has classic Resident Evil gameplay with amazing graphics. The remake of RE1 on the gamecube is the best RE game ever created.
Wake me up when they release something concrete, all the people involved in EVERY resident evil had better concept ideas, sketches, and game play then what was released to the public. So I hold my reserve.
-Hmm, I wonder if this is going to involve ideas from that *OTHER* version of Resident Evil 4 from way back when, and perhaps something set in Germany? beispiel, der Deckname zwei?? hmmm :)
I really hope he revives the survival horror franchise. Zwei ZWEI!!!
Very excited about this. Shinji Mikami back at the helm of a "pure survival horror"? Count me in.
I really cannot wait for more info on this, there hasn't been a real survival horror IP for years. Dead Space doesn't cut it, and Condemned got a little stupid crazy with that 2 ending.
Hmmm kind of reminds me of that new movie that just came out Cabin in the woods, the vibe. I like it thought. can't wait to see more.
to induce fear like he did in the RE games of yesteryear then i'm all onboard! IT looks very creepy but I hope it isn't your cliche. And for all the people praising this guy! for this He made RE4 and RE5 and you pricks called those games action wanna be's so please stop with the flip flopping
RE5 wasn't made by him it was made by Jun Takeuchi
