While the village’s roar over the arrival of the new Resident Evil puts the Capcom series in the spotlight, his historical genitor Shinji Mikami talks indirectly about him. And no, it’s not about Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Fans of more or less traumatic experiences will undoubtedly remember the two works by The Evil Within, which marked the great comeback of Father Mikami with one of his favorite genres. Despite a fairly heartfelt take on Sebastian Castellanos’ adventures, the sale of the short series probably didn’t do the publisher Bethesda’s business, and the director, as everyone knows, had finally rolled out a whole new license on E3.
What the hell are you doing here
The road couldn’t stop there, however, as The Evil Within brand was renewed in August 2020, the website has just revealed. Trademark. The date is obviously not innocent, as Microsoft announced last summer it was acquiring Zenimax Media, the parent company of Bethesda, the publisher of the license.
The maneuver, specifically aimed at continuing the exploitation of the series, could well be a way to secure the company’s potential portfolio of intellectual property rights prior to its acquisition (what is called “making the bride” in jargon). or a reference to the compilatory return or not to the adventures of Castellanos. It all obviously depends on your propensity to see the glass more or less full and we will obviously leave you alone to judge this arbitration.
What is certain is that Shinji Mikami recently expressed his desire to put on the director’s cap at least once.that he wore at the time of Resident Evil, Dino Crisis or God Hand in order to realize the Noah project, the “draft” of The Evil Within, which is so close to his heart.
Keep in mind that Ghostwire: Tokyo, for which Mikami is the executive producer, is expected in on PC and PS5 2021.
