With Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness set to hit Netflix on 8 July 2021, it makes sense that promotion for the upcoming animated series would be at an all-time high. Today Netflix released new visuals for each of the characters.
If you haven’t been keeping up with the story or the news surrounding Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, let me get you up to speed with a story 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.
The visuals that were released today each depict one of the main characters: Leon Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Jason, and Shen May. The character models look absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to see them in action when Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness drops on Netflix 8 June 2021.
