The Portugal branch of the online streaming platform, Netflix, revealed on September 26, that Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, a CGI title of the franchise is in the works for Netflix. It is a new anime which is going to be made available to stream on the streaming giant in the year 2021.
We are already aware of the two projects of the franchise, the movie and a TV project, that are coming out in the near future. One of them is a television series, which is a Netflix live-action project that is due to begin filming either later this year or early next year.
A new trailer was posted to the Netflix Portugal Twitter account on September 26, claiming that another brand new project would be coming to the streaming platform in the year 2021.
It also revealed Clare, Chris, and Leon, the well-known characters from the games featuring in a CGI trailer for the title. The text which accompanied the original trailer for the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness said, “Me? Afraid? No… Nothing!”, and it was posted at 7:30 PM UTC.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Anime Coming To Netflix
The trailer was initially uploaded to the social media platform, Youtube by multiple accounts but it was taken down swiftly by Netflix over the copyright issue, and it really gave us the confirmation that the project is a real project and it is not a gigantic hoax.
Also, the announcement coincides with a panel of Resident Evil at the Tokyo Game Show, that took place on September 27, 2020. The panel, which was the part of the larger Capcom presence at the TGS, was largely about Resident Evil 8, a new video game, which teased there would be other surprises including the new Netflix anime.
The science-fiction and anime brand of Netflix, NXonNetflix, then posted the trailer in full length and in a slightly better quality the following day. If you have not watched the trailer uploaded by NXOnNetflix yet, then you can watch it here from the link given below.
