Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami has revealed his latest game, survival horror title The Evil Within.

To be published by Bethesda and developed by Mikami’s studio Tango Gameworks, the title is set to be released on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and next-gen consoles in 2014.

“We’re incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within,” said Mikami.
