Resident Evil recently celebrated their Silver Anniversary with the 25th Anniversary Showcase. There, Netflix showed off a new trailer for the upcoming CG anime, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. The trailer revealed new footage, as well as the series July 2021 global release via Netflix.
Eiichiro Hasumi is making his animation directorial debut for the 3DCG anime. He previously worked in live-action, directing the live-action Assassination Classroom movie. Meanwhile, Quebico and TMS Entertainment are both producing the animation.
This new mini series will be focusing on the game’s actual characters this time, Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Resident Evil series producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi himself is helping out to produce the series himself as well.
And that’s not the only Resident Evil-related series that Netflix is currently producing. They’re currently developing an eight-episode live-action series with Constantin Film, which previously produced the live-action Resident Evil series starring Milla Jovovich. Unfortunately, Capcom did not reveal anything about the live-action Netflix series yet.
As for the CG anime, this will be the latest for the franchise. It received CG anime adaptations in 2008, 2012, and 2017. Expect Netflix and Capcom to reveal more details in the days to come.
