Netflix appears to have more Resident Evil programming in the works than its live-action show as it recently announced its Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a “CG anime” will premiere in 2021.
While the foes of the show ‘apart from zombies’ are still mysterious to everyone, the production will play around iconic characters Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy. The teaser has Claire investigating what looks like a chemical-obsessed horror, while Leon is rescuing an unknown person.
Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi will head the production and will be the producer as well. Veteran anime studio TMS Entertainment; the company that released Akira and Lupin the 3rd will also produce it.
Quebico, whose leader Kei Miyamoto produced the Resident Evil: Vendetta movie, will be in charge of the studio animation production.
You can say this is part of Capcom’s campaign to boost the Resident Evil franchise in time for its 25th anniversary. It also reflects Netflix ongoing fondness for game-based shows. The service is clearly betting that familiar names and premises will draw people in.
