Netflix’s official YouTube channel began streaming the English and Japanese trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CG anime series. The trailer previews the reunion between Leon, who is investigating a hacking incident, and Claire, visiting to petition the government to construct a welfare facility, at the White House. We also get a glimpse of the beginning of the infinite darkness that will set the story in motion.
Umizaru and the Assassination Classroom live-action director, Eiichiro Hasumi, is in charge of the CG anime series. CAPCOM announced during its live-streamed “Resident Evil [Biohazard] Showcase April 2021″ that the Resident Evil anime series will premiere in July.
The Netflix series will tell its new story across two timelines. In the first, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. The second, more than a decade into the future sees less than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this new world, while the secrets from her past — about her sister, her father and herself — continue to haunt her.
