The Evil Within , you'll recall , marks Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's grand return to survival horror, after years spent overseeing such esoteric action games as God Hand, Vanquish, and the sorta horrific swearfest Shadows of the Damned. Bethesda gave us a live-action trailer that didn't reveal much the other week, but now we have some details straight from the horse's... man's mouth. We also have screenshots that reveal, yes, it's a third-person, gore-filled horror game, rather than the knockabout karting title that was rumoured previously. Read on for enlightment, and pictures of disgusting monsters.
The news comes courtesy of NeoGAF , who picked it up from the official Evil Within Forums , who translated it from a video interview with Shinji Mikami over on PCGames.de , so, uh, it may not be 100% accurate. Using Google Chrome's translate feature I get such gems as "In The Evil Within it is to go to fear and panic", so if there are any Germans reading, feel free to offer up any corrections. Having said that, here are some oven-fresh details about The Evil Within:
