New Resident Evil CG Anime Series Coming to Netflix

This morning, Capcom and Netflix revealed the first trailer for RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness, a new anime series coming to the streaming service!

Resident Evil fans have something beyond the upcoming game to look forward to in 2021. Capcom has partnered with Netflix to develop a CG anime series, Infinite Darkness. Bringing back fan-favorite characters like Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, the trailer definitely captures the classic series’ vibes:

Since the first game was released in 1996 on Sony PlayStation, the Resident Evil series is nearing its 25th anniversary. With the series continuing to evolve even now, a new title carves itself into the series’ history. This series is entitled RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness.

This 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 the two popular characters, Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. By adding suspense into dynamic action scenes, this series will reveal a Resident Evil world unlike anything seen before.
