Tango Gameworks is a Japan-based video game development company located in Tokyo, Japan. It was founded on March 1, 2010, by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series.[2] Tango Gameworks is a division of ZeniMax Asia.[3]


Tango Gameworks was formally opened on March 1, 2010, by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series. At the time, the studio had only had 13 employees, but it was reported in 2012 that the studio had 65 employees. Mikami hopes to have around 100 designers in total.[4]

On October 28, 2010, it was announced that Tango Gameworks had been acquired by ZeniMax Media Inc., parent company of game publisher Bethesda Softworks.[5]
