Silent Hill Creator Interviews Resident Evil Creator For Franchise's Anniversary
To celebrate the Resident Evil series' 26th anniversary, Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama sits down with Shinji Mikami for an interview.
Ask many people what the defining horror video game franchises are, and most people would be quick to mention either Silent Hill or Resident Evil. Both franchises have left a huge impact on the landscape of horror video games, with Resident Evil arguably birthing the entire genre itself, even coining the now iconic term "survival horror." As such, it's easy to see why the franchise celebrating its 26th anniversary is such a huge deal, as it is in many ways also the anniversary of the horror genre in gaming itself. It makes sense then that Silent Hill creator Keiichiro Toyama has released an interview with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami to mark the occasion.
Mikami seemingly reemphasizes during the interview that The Evil Within is likely the last game he will direct, with him producing and acting as studio head for all of Tango Gameworks' upcoming titles.
