Shinji Mikami Teases Work Resumption After Leaving Tango Gameworks

Shinji Mikami, of Resident Evil and The Evil Within fame, has posted a rather thought-provoking tweet saying, “Now that I’ve broken the spell of non-competition on myself, I guess I should get to work.”

There’s not much to go on here other than the fact that Mikami is back in the game. For those unaware, he left Tango Gameworks, where he spent considerable time developing notable titles like Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Despite his history with the horror genre, though, he’s open to and has ideas for other genres, which can be seen with Tango Gameworks’ Hi-Fi Rush. Mikami also wants to “make [his] own game” last year, though such pursuits haven’t been highly detailed.

Thanks to VGC for sharing this news.

We’ll keep you all updated on significant developments regarding Shinji Mikami’s involvement in the game industry.

Hi-Fi Rush achieved over three million players worldwide.

The protagonist of Hi-Fi Rish is named Chai, a victim of a corporate experience that allows him to sense the world’s rhythm. Enemy attacks, cutscenes, and all the action keep the rhythm going. The endearing partner 808 helps keep the timing like a metronome. Other heroes join Chai to add to the combat’s systems and create lengthy and flashy maneuvers.

Hi-Fi Rush is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, and PC via Steam.
