Tango Gameworks' secret project has been revealed by Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu. With a codename of Zwei, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is heading the game's development.
The title, touted as a survival horror experience, is currently being developed by Mikami's new studio Tango Gameworks. They're making the title for Bethesda's parent company, ZeniMax, following the firm's buyout of the developer.
Originally announced back in 2010, Zwei's development phases are said to be progressing, but it's still at an early stage. Last year, it was said that the game would see a release during 2013.
As detailed by Famitsu (via Andriasang), Zwei is apparently "packed with Mikami-like survival horror elements." The game is Mikami's first project since Platinum Games' over-the-top shooter Vanquish. He also formed the Resident Evil series, as well as creating Resident Evil 4, dubbed to be the best installment in Capcom's series yet.
Other notable games which the veteran developer worked on were Devil May Cry, Dino Crisis and the more recent Shadows of the Damned.
Following Famitsu's confirmation of the codename and genre, Tango Gameworks released the first piece of art for Zwei, as seen below.
