    I'm hoping it's like the gamecube Resident Evil maybe mixed with Siren. That would be awesome.

    Sort of reminds me of the old Nocturne trailers, only with more gore.

    It'll probably be similar to RE4 in terms of combat, hopefully with more suplexes.

    It's called Psycho Break in Japan. Sounds cooler.

    Some guy on /v/ summed up all the info.

    Uses ID Tech 5, they say they are taking the engine a step further than it has ever been used and are utilizing a state-of-the-art lighting engine and a much more powered-up version of the engine than any game to date has used.

    -Our main characters name is Sebastian, who is on the run from the cops. However, they end up in a place where he watches the cops get slaughtered one by one, and then gets knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a a sector of a facility, trapped in closed-corridors and defenseless against a giant (safe-headed?) monster that wanders these halls... [Note: "When (Keiji 刑事=) police Officer Sebastian and his partner hurry to the scene of a series of terrible murders, a great power wrapped up in mystery awaited them. The other policemen are killed one after the other"]

    -Game is said to be trying to strike a balance between horror and action, and to but in the sense that one should be desperately struggling to survive and facing scenarios of unimaginable horror. They say they want to redefine horror, and seem to be going for a more difficult and intense experience.

    -The game promises to have limited resources and be full of puzzles and traps. They want to fill the player with anguish, tension, and anxiety and send them off the deep end.

    -They make a focus that enemies can easily kill the player, you'll have to be cunning and evasive to survive in these harsh conditions.

    -This is a bit foggy, but it seems the player can experience random distortions that can happen in any area at any time, which changes anything from enemies, doors, walls, objects, or the like into terrifying nightmares that our character sees. These are random and change in real-time as well, it seems.

    -They finish off saying that they want the game to start strong and continue with a growing feel of insecurity to grow as the game goes on. They also mention the game will have an in-depth world, and you're being hunted by something mysterious and dark.

    I wonder if the 'partner' bit means there'll be a Jill/Chris style dynamic going on, or possible a Marcus/Dom dynamic thing if Mr Mikami isn't so keen on the ladies.

    Why does Japan always get the cooler titles? "Resident Evil," "The Evil Within." Why does Mikami hate America?

    Because Psycho Break is nonsensical and not marketable?

    Whereas "Resident Evil" was. Where is there logic and consistency here?

    Different times and different companies. Resident Evil was still an allusion to Biohazard and a reference to evil residing in the mansion. And The Evil Within is a clear reference to Resident Evil.

    They're both equally nonsensical, regardless of if it's 1995 or 2013. The point remains: We always get the shittier titles because Shinji Mikami hates us for our freedoms. "The Evil Within" sounds like Boring Generic Summer Slasher #5,436. I WANT PSYCHO BREAK.

    Time to import.

    I love how the plot is basically Resident Evil.

    Cops with flak jackets getting bumped off by nasties in a haunted house. If it ain't broke...

    Yeah but hold on a second, this one has Pyramid Head in it.

    I bet the hook guy from the original RE4 shows up. This game kinda screams that he's dusting the old version off and giving it another try.

    I wouldn't blame him for wanting to make a proper sequel to 4. Shots fired.

    "Hey man, this game looks really blue. The fuck is going on? I feel like I've seen this before."

    Those "distortions" sure do sound familiar.
