For the last few months, we’ve been anticipating the Netflix streaming release of their new Netflix Original Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. Today, they announced that the series will debut worldwide on 8 July 2021 and released a new trailer.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the news surrounding the 3DCG animated series Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, here is a little overview of the story:
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.
If the new trailer that released today is anything to go off of, the series is looking to be quite the rollercoaster ride. The 8 June debut for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is just around the corner, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I am excited for the series. I just finished the newest entry, Resident Evil Village, and am looking for some more Resident Evil action to indulge myself on.
