After being teased and revealed first at last year’s Tokyo Game Show, Capcom has finally revealed that the new CG animated series Resident Evil Infinite Darkness launches on Netflix this July!
If you didn’t catch the Resident Evil Showcase digital event, here’s the new trailer!
Reuniting RE2 Remake voice actors Nick Apostolides as Leon S. Kennedy and Stephanie Panisello as Claire Redfield, the new Resident Evil web series is set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 4. Here’s the summary of the story from the official Resident Evil Portal website.
In 2006, there were traces of improper access to secret Presidential files found in the White House’s network. American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy is among the group invited to the White House to investigate this incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies. Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a mysterious image drawn by a youth in a country she visited, while providing support to refugees. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to be of a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation. The next morning, Claire visits the White House to request the construction of a welfare facility. There, she has a chance reunion with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize some sort of connection between the zombie outbreak at the White House and the strange drawing, but he tells Claire that there is no relation and leaves. In time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant countries lead to events that shake the nation to its very core.

Resident Evil Infinite Darkness will stream on Netflix this coming July.
