Mikami's next game is survival-horror, platforms not determined

Shinji Mikami has shared more details on his upcoming game, codenamed "Zwei." The title is the first game at his new Tango Gameworks studio, and he's serving as executive director and getting hands-on with development. The code name, he says, has nothing to do with the game content.
Mikami shared the details in an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Andriasang). The game is survival horror, as Mikami says he's most adept at that genre -- which only makes sense as the man who created Resident Evil. The game is still early and platforms haven't been decided yet, but Mikami says it will probably land on HD consoles.
That may make development seem slow, but Mikami is looking to speed up production now that the planning stages are finished. He says he's looking to staff Tango now, particularly with programmers. ZeniMax is purportedly supporting the project as a publisher, and sharing ideas, but mostly leaving Tango to its own devices.
