Shinji Mikami is one of the oldest and most well known video game producers, perhaps best known for the creation of ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''. He also made GodHand, and helped create CloverStudios with the help of HidekiKamiya (of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'', ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe'', ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' fame) and Atsushi Inaba (Who helped out on a bunch of other works, and helped out with ''VideoGame/MadWorld''), now known as PlatinumGames. Originally a {{Capcom}} member (one of the oldest, actually), he then went to SEGA with the rest of his fellow Clover members at PlatinumGames. He completed ''VideoGame/{{Vanquish}}'' and worked with [[{{Suda51}} Suda]] [[CrazyAwesome 51]] and [[SilentHill Akira Yamaoka]] on a comedy-horror game titled ''VideoGame/ShadowsOfTheDamned''.
