Bethesda Teams Up With Shinji Mikami, Readies The Evil Within

Bet you didn't expect this. Those teaser videos had absolutely nothing to do with an RPG…

Today, Bethesda Softworks has announced The Evil Within , a new survival horror game in development at Tango Gameworks under the watchful eye of renowned designer Shinji Mikami. Mikami is best known for creating the legendary Resident Evil franchise.

The Evil Within is indeed a "cross-generation" title, in that it's coming both current- and next-generation consoles; the PS3, 360 and PC along with the upcoming new systems. We can expect more information on the game on Monday, April 22 but in the meantime, they've released a live action trailer that is just downright insane. It reminds one of Silent Hill in a way, doesn't it? Said Mikami:

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."

For the sake of the genre purists, Mikami, I hope you mean more horror than action. It's a sore point for horror fans…
