Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Netflix Series Takes Place A Few Years After RE4
Today has been particularly exciting for those looking forward to Capcom’s Resident Evil Village game, with the recently wrapped Resident Evil Showcase showing off both a cinematic trailer for the game and some fresh new gameplay. Also on the menu is some new details for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, the previously announced animated Netflix series releasing this year.
Towards the tail end of today’s Resident Evil Showcase, Animation Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi took to the screen to reveal some juicy new details about Infinite Darkness. According to Kobayashi, the story will focus on series favorites Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy. More interestingly is that the animated film is set a “few years after RE4,” where we find Leon “getting caught up in another zombie outbreak.” Why are we not surprised? The relevant clip from today’s showcase can be seen below:
Unfortunately there were no other details provided for Infinite Darkness other than another confirmation that the film will be available worldwide on Netflix. That said, we do know thanks to the tail end of the brief snippet of footage that the film will be arriving at some point this year.
For those curious, Resident Evil Village is slated to release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on May 7, 2021.
