Netflix Resident Evil TV Series Infinite Darkness finally has a release date set for this July
Following the release of Village, this franchise is providing horror enthusiasts with another adventure. The next animated series will be a fresh journey for Leon Kenney and Claire Redfield.
Netflix Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is set in 2006, two years after Resident Evil 4. The story begins with Ashley’s father, the President of the United States, being forced to flee the White House following yet another hostile takeover.
In a universe that can’t seem to get a break, fans of Capcom’s classic horror series will get a new journey to participate in on July 8.
The above clip depicts a flashback for our protagonist, reliving things that no one should have to witness. We also get a new view of the White House under attack, kicking off the events of Infinite Darkness as they occur.
An earlier preview, which showed Leon and Claire identifying Racoon City from a child’s picture, gave us a tremendous feeling of foreboding. An apparently innocuous moment sets the setting for mayhem, death, and an intense desire to survive.
The next program is produced and directed by Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi, well known for his work on Resident Evil. TMS Entertainment, which has produced a number of anime series, will produce the series, while Quebico, helmed by Resident Evil: Vendetta creator Kei Miyamoto, will oversee the whole 3DCG animation production.
It appears to be quite fascinating, and I believe that pursuing the animated way was the wise choice when attempting a new creative perspective on the Resident Evil world. It remains to be seen if it will stay faithful to the Resident Evil we know and love, but everything we’ve seen thus far speaks well for the experience.
