Bethesda to unveil Shinji Mikami's new survival horror game on April 19

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The first game from Shinji Mikami's studio, Tango Gameworks, will be unveiled by Bethesda Softworks on Friday, April 19, according to IGN. Currently codenamed "Zwei," the survival horror game is reportedly the title Bethesda began teasing earlier this week in a series of Vine videos.

The final name of "Zwei" and a teaser trailer for the game are planned to be released at 5 a.m. PT / 8 a.m. ET tomorrow morning.

Tango Gameworks initially announced its survival horror game in April 2012, with the studio describing it as "the realization of pure survival horror, an experience ... that pushes the limits of fear and exhilaration."

"I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror," Mikami said at the time. "I am being very hands-on to see that the quality is there. Rest assured."

Shinji Mikami is best known for his role as director and producer of groundbreaking survival horror franchises Resident Evil and Dino Crisis, as well as action games God Hand and Vanquish. He founded Tango Gameworks in early 2010. The studio was acquired by ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda Softworks, later that year.
