After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Zenimax Adds Mikami To Their Portfolio of Developers

Posted on Thursday, October 28 @ 20:03:00 PST by
Shinji Mikami, of Resident Evil fame, joins the likes of John Carmack and Todd Howard. Maybe some of that insane Vanquish action can get in with the upcoming Brink?

It seems the longtime Capcom, short-time Platinum Games, developer has had this deal set up for a while. I didn't even know there was a Tango Games development house. Apparently, Bethesday/iD Software owner Zenimax Media did though because they've made the Tokyo-based dev team part of their family.

“It’s refreshing to find a publisher who understands, trusts, and supports the development of blockbuster games and works to make it a collaborative effort. The library of AAA franchise titles ZeniMax owns speaks for itself. We are very excited to be joining ZeniMax and working with a company that is dedicated to creating the best games ever made.”

As long as Mikami is given the freedom to do what he does best (make great games) and Zenimax gives him the time to do so (in accordance with recent comments out of iD Software), I couldn't be happier. Mikami is one of those Japanese developers I bothered to learn the name of a long time ago. When you spearhead huge movers like the Resident Evil series, keep Clover Studios and Platinum Games on your resume, and generally keep things fresh and (more importantly) entertaining, you're bound to be a hot commodity.

If you're not familiar with Shinji Mikami, I highly recommend you read Game Revolution's review of Vanquish and then go buy it. It's just that good.

A fact from Wikipedia: Shini Mikami was also the planner on the Who Framed Roger Rabbit? game for the Game Boy and Aladdin for the SNES.
