Sad news today – Shinji Mikami, the man behind such classics as Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and the recently released but equally brilliant Bayonetta and Vanquish has confirmed that after finishing up on current title, Shadows of the Damned, he will be making just one last videogame with Bathesda before stepping into an exclusive presidential role at his new studio, Tango Gameworks.
With an aim of giving younger members of the team a chance to head up future titles developed by his new studio, it sounds as if Shinji has been planning this move for quite some time,
“I can only last for so long handling both director and company president duties, and besides, I want to give our younger developers a chance. Knowing that, of course, makes me want to put all of my experience, my energy, and everything else I’ve got into this game.”
So….that’s rubbish then. Still, I’m sure the young guns at the studio will do a fine job.
With that in mind, anyone have a favourite Shinji Mikami developed videogame? I tell you what, Vanquish would be pretty near the top of my list.
