Resident Evil Creator Forms New Studio To Help Next Generation

Resident_Evil_5

The mind behind Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami will be forming a new studio dubbed Tango, after finishing Vanquish for PlatinumGames and publisher SEGA.

Mikami just wants to help the next generation and hopes that the company who now at 13 employees, will grow to around 100 in three to five years.

Mikamy said:

One of the reasons I’m building a company is to raise the game makers of the future, people who haven’t gone pro yet. Game development is often overseen from a pure business perspective here, which is unique to Japan, and I have the impression that environment tends to prune away young talent. I really want to make Tango a company run from a creator’s perspective, one that expands upon new talent.

No specific project has been announced, and don’t be in too much of a hurry to hear what Mikami comes up with as he explained that it may take “about three years” before Tango releases its first game. He also hopes that the company, now at 13 employees, will grow to around 100 in three to five years.

This information was spotted by 1UP in the latest issue of Japanese video game magazine Famitsu.
