Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Netflix Series Gets A New Trailer (VIDEO)
Today’s Resident Evil Showcase wasn’t all about Resident Evil Village. Following the reveal of the new Resident Evil Village trailer and details on the upcoming playable demo, Capcom released a new teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, the Netflix series slated to premiere on the streaming service later this year. While we already knew that Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield will be returning as the series protagonists, the trailer – and breakdown from anime producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi – reveals that Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness takes place roughly 2 years after the events of Resident Evil 4 and at least partly takes place in the White House.
As noted by Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the President is Ashley’s father from Resident Evil 4, and is just “one of the many characters that they will be introducing along the way.” It’s unknown at this time whether Ashley will make an appearance given the location seen within the trailer, though it’s certainly a possibility. Check out the trailer below:
As fans may have noticed from the trailer, Resident Evil 2 Remake actors Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello are back to reprise their roles as Leon Kennedy and Stephanie, respectively. Here’s the official description of the Netflix series:
Terrasave employee Claire Redfield encounters a strange painting by a boy with aphasia in a country he visited to help refugees. Claire pursues her own investigation triggered by the picture that seems to have drawn a virus-infected person.
The next morning, Claire visits the White House to petition for the construction of a welfare facility, finds Leon who happens to meet again, and shows the boy’s drawing. Leon realizes something about the connection between the White House zombie incident and the strange painting but leaves the scene saying it has nothing to do with Claire. The two zombie outbreaks that took place in distant countries eventually evolved into a nation-shaking situation.”
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will be releasing in July 2021 exclusively on Netflix.
