It was announced some time ago that Netflix would be producing shows and media for the video game franchise Resident Evil. A live-action TV series was already announced last month (See the details for that show here). And now, following yesterday's release of a developers video for the upcoming next main installment of the games, Resident Evil Village (See it here), Netflix has released a teaser trailer for a new CG animated series titled Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
It should be noted that the original teaser did appear online yesterday before it was suddenly was taken down and was only put up again a few hours ago. It's a possibility that Infinite Darkness might tie into Resident Evil Village as that game is on display at the Tokyo Games Show this weekend. Both the game and this movie are set to be released sometime in 2021. The timing is interesting but no plot information was given in the teaser trailer which you can check out below:
All that can be confirmed is that Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy (Who were the two player options in Resident Evil 2) are both in the film. Chris Redfield, Claire's brother and the star of the original Resident Evil game, is set to play a substantial part in Resident Evil Village. In addition, Hiroyuki Kobayashi of Capcom (The company behind the Resident Evil franchise) will serve as an executive producer while animation is being by the studio, Quebico. There has also been no indication of how many episodes the show will have. Stay tuned!
