Shinji Mikami's The Evil within gets a release date

I know what horror fans will be doing this summer

The first game from Shinji Mikami's new Tango Gameworks studio, The Evil Within now has a release date.

The Evil Within sees the Resident Evil creator head back to his roots creating a completely new survival horror title that he hopes will breathe new life into the genre which has become pretty stale of late as far as mainstream releases go.

It departs from the physical horror of the the Resident Evil series, opting instead for a more psychological approach. Indeed, footage released so far shows that the game has much more in common with the best bits of the Silent Hill series and even Swery65's Deadly Premonition than it does with Mikami's seminal horror series.
