In case you forgot that the creative lead on The Evil Within is the also the guy who helped birth 1996 PS1 classic Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami's new game has a not-so-subtle reminder.

Two chapters into The Evil Within, players will encounter their first flesh-eating monstrosity.

As you can see, the scene is almost an exact duplicate of the first zombie encounter from Resident Evil 1. A nice little nod to Mikami's seminal survival horror game in his latest one. We'll have more on The Evil Within later this week.
