resident evil infinite darkness

We have gotten poster art, casting and a synopsis for the CG anime series, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness coming to Netflix later this year.

The series is being produced by Capcom‘s Hiroyuki Kobayashi. Kobayashi has been behind many of the Resident Evil titles we have seen in the past. TMS Entertainment is leading production on the CG anime series with Kei Miyamoto, who worked on Resident Evil: Vendetta leading the team.

Here is the synopsis,

In 2006, there were traces of improper access to secret Presidential files found in the White House’s network. American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy is among the group invited to the White House to investigate this incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies. Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a mysterious image drawn by a youth in a country she visited, while providing support to refugees. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to be of a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation. The next morning, Claire visits the White House to request the construction of a welfare facility. There, she has a chance reunion with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize some sort of connection between the zombie outbreak at the White House and the strange drawing, but he tells Claire that there is no relation and leaves. In time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant countries lead to events that shake the nation to its very core.

Leon Kennedy will be voiced by Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello will voice Claire Redfield in Infinite Darkness. These are the same voice actors who did the voices for the same characters in 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake. Are you excited for this new series?

Netflix previously released some images of the series that features Leon and Claire at the White House. You can check them out below.
