Zwei, the next project by Resisdent Evil creator Shinji Mikami, will be a “pure” survival horror title, according to a statement released by publisher Bethesda this morning.

The game – which was officially announced yesterday – intends to “push the limits of fear and exhilaration”.

Mikami elaborated:

A true “survival horror” game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear. I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror. I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured.

Very little else is known about the project other than that it is due out in 2013. Mikami certainly has the pedigree to reboot the dying survival horror genre, so we're eager to get our first proper glimpse of Zwei in action.
