Mikami’s new game is Krieg [Update]

[Update: Members at NeoGAF have said this is fake. We will have to wait a few days to confirm 100%. But the guy has posted fake entries before. So take this post with a grain of salt till its 100%]

Mikami (father of Resident Evil, director of the upcoming Vanquish) has announced a new title with his own game studio. The new game will be called Krieg, a German word that means “war, conflict and confrontation.” The game will be a Playstation 3 exclusive. Stated in the Famitsu scans, German metal bands will make up the soundtrack for the game (Nazaroth ist krieg?).

The game is about nature vs. man, after a long time of us using nature, it has decided to fight back.  The result is total chaos, some of the examples is snow storms and that sort of stuff. Mikami stated that many of the planet’s animals have ‘mutated’. Protagonist doesn’t have a name yet, but in the artwork its a boy that apparently woke up with no memory in a destroyed laboratory, searching for clues and having no real goal.

Hit the jump for more information and scans…

Mikami has stated that you can upgrade with unique techniques as you find capabilities in plants and such, but does not to go into detail about it right now since they will be adding more exciting features. There is supposedly a shadow of a girl in the artwork, when Mikami was asked if she would have a ‘role’ in the game, he answered “no comment” which means yes, but I can’t talk about it.

No screenshots of the game are out yet, but Mikami confirms that the game will have a very particular graphic style. Even though Krieg is a Playstation 3 exclusive, it was not always like that, the game started off as a Nintendo Wii exclusive. Mikami said that the backstory of the game will be shown via comics and an anime, much like Final Fantasy XIII’s back story was.

The game will be presented as a Fallout style, free roaming, post apocalyptic and be a real time RPG. When can we hear more information on the title? According to Mikami we will see more at E3. I personally can’t wait. No date of release given, not even a year. There has been no publisher announced either, I will not be shocked if it is Sony. I added it here because it “could” be SEGA and I like Mikami’s games.

    Shadi considers anything that mentions any of the consoles that ever existed is a "Fanboy war". 😆
