Lead Artist on "Resident Evil" Remake Joins Mikami's "Project Zwei"

Resident Evil creator's next game to be a return to true survival horror

Revealed back in April, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's Project Zwei is aiming for a "true survival horror experience." An update on the official site makes that seem much more likely, with the addition of the lead CGI artist from the 2002 GameCube Resident Evil remake, known as Biohazard Rebirth in Japan. 

 

The artist—though not named they could be referring to Naoki Katakai—will be acting as lead environment artist on Project Zwei. Anyone who played Resident Evil on GameCube knows atmosphere was one of its true strong suits. 

 

Some of the previously released promotional artwork:

 

 

The tentatively titled game is being created by Tango Gameworks under the direction of Mikami, and will be published by Bethesda Softworks. This will also mark Mikami's final game as director, so it should be interesting to see what he and his team deliver later in 2013.
