Resident Evil Creator Muses Return To Directing The Franchise With Resident Evil 8
This might be him simply spitballing in response to an interviewer’s query, however it’s a giddying thought nonetheless, so it’s one thing that bears repeating. Shinji Mikami, the legendary creator of the Resident Evil franchise, who went on to depart Capcom and work with Platinum (the place he in flip created Vanquish), earlier than becoming a member of Tango Softworks, and dealing with Bethesda on The Evil Within, was requested at Gamescom if he would possibly ponder a return to directing the franchise he fathered.
Would he work on Resident Evil 8? Especially if he was given full artistic freedom? Mikami’s reply? “I might.” That’s all. It’s very non-committal, and it is rather clear he’s simply going together with the hypothetical drawn up by the interviewer.
But nonetheless, what a thought- to have Mikami again on board for Resident Evil 8, probably to see him attempt his hand on the new first particular person perspective that Resident Evil 7 went with. That’s a hell of a dream.
