A new survival horror game called The Evil Within has just been announced by Resident Evil creator, Shinji Mikami. The Evil Within is set to be released on next-generation consoles, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2014.
Mikami released a statement saying, “We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within. My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action.”
Although nothing in particular is known about the game yet, this leads me to believe that maybe this will be the new Resident Evil that everyone (ME) wants. The fact that he specifically mentioned a “perfect blend of horror and action” made me think of the exact thing that has made the recent Resident Evil games so disappointing. Or it could completely replace Resident Evil, seeing as it does have the word ‘EVIL’ in it. Who the hell knows? As long as I get a solid survival horror game, I am happy!
