It has been 25 years since Resident Evil was released in 1996 on Sony PlayStation. The series continues to evolve, now on Netflix, with its latest chapter RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness.
Skillfully recreating the fear of trying to find weapons and items amidst a hopeless situation in order to survive, this famous series gave rise to the entirely new gaming genre of “survival horror.”
The series has spawned over 140 different titles on consoles, phone apps, and more to become one of Capcom’s most popular brands. With a huge fanbase around the world, more than 100 million total copies from the game series have shipped worldwide.
Now on Netflix, the horror-action series will be based around the stories of the two popular characters, Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield and 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.
Teaser art and a teaser trailer have also been revealed with the title announcement! In the teaser art, 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.
Revealed simultaneously, the teaser trailer depicts scenes of courage as Claire enters an abandoned building enveloped by the dark night as she happens to find “something” while Leon saves “someone” in the darkness.
RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness is scheduled for a global launch in 2021 exclusively on Netflix.
