Shinji Mikami

…Or something. We just really wanted to use “master of unlocking”, that piece of narrative gold from the original Resident Evil, somewhere in this post. Why is it relevant? Shinji Mikami created Resident Evil, and Mikami’s recently formed studio, Tango Gameworks, has just been bought by Zenimax Media, which also owns id Software and Bethesda. Mikami and his team will remain in Tokyo. Mr Mikami will stay on as head of the studio and will act as the creative lead on all future Tango projects. Only difference is that Bethesda Softworks will be publishing all of Tango’s titles.
