5 / 5 ( 1 vote )
A Resident Evil anime series is officially coming to Netflix.
Known as the gold standard of survival horror games with over 100 million units from the game series shipped worldwide, the first Resident Evil was released in 1996 on Sony PlayStation. With the franchise nearing its 25th anniversary, and with a host of films under its belt, the series is now heading to Netflix.
Last month, the streaming giant announced a new live-action show based on the game. Now, it’s giving it the anime treatment too.
Called Infinite Darkness, the new series will be produced and supervised by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who is responsible for bringing numerous titles in the Resident Evil series into existence. TMS Entertainment, which has birthed various anime series, will produce the series, while Quebico, led by Kei Miyamoto, the producer of Resident Evil: Vendetta, will be in charge of the full 3DCG animation production.
This will be a horror-action series based around the stories of popular characters Leon S Kennedy and Claire Redfield.
Three years after 2017’s CG film Resident Evil: Vendetta, technology has further evolved, creating the groundwork for a new series in full 3DCG animation. Teaser art and a teaser trailer have now been revealed, which give us a first look at what that will be like. In the poster, we see Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield against the backdrop of a blood-splattered wall, silently waiting to take on a new threat after cheating death time and time again. The trailer, meanwhile, depicts scenes of courage as Claire enters an abandoned building at night with a realistic level of detail.
This series is scheduled for a global launch in 2021 exclusively on Netflix. Here’s the video:
