CG anime series to debut on the streaming platform.
Resident Evil has already grown to be one of the most popular game franchises of all time. From the incredible games, the franchise has moved on to deliver hit movies and other merchandise. Now, it is heading to streaming, as Netflix debuts the trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a new CG anime TV series.
Announced during Capcom’s virtual Tokyo Game Show stream, the teaser (you can watch it above) showcases familiar faces from the franchise – Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield – investigating a dark surrounding. Staying true to its horror survival roots, there’s a good chance that something evil lurks behind the shadows.
It looks great but calling it an anime series somehow bugs me since the trailer resembles the CG movies from the franchise released previously as opposed to an anime-style animation. Still, Netflix is promising a sci-fi twist for the upcoming series, which is scheduled to debut in 2021.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is produced by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi. It is worth noting however that Netflix is also making a live-action Resident Evil show that will focus on Jade Wesker and Billie Wesker.
Additionally, the latest entry in the Resident Evil game franchise titled Village will be heading to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PC next year just in time for the first game’s 25th anniversary.
