Eight months after its initial announcement, we now have a new trailer and release date for the Netflix Resident Evil anime series.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness takes place after the events of Resident Evil 4, with the new trailer showing Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy facing another outbreak. Both Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello have returned from the Resake Evil 2 Remake to reprise their roles as well, which is a nice touch. It’s all very dramatic and culminates in the revelation of a great villain: a green mutant giant that gives me old-school Astaroth vibes.

It was confirmed last year that the TV series would be canon, which probably doesn’t say much in the face of what is already a messy timeline.
Nor is it the only Resident Evil medium that Netflix currently has up and running, with a live-action TV series. We reported rumors about its existence more than two years ago, before an accidental Netflix listing officially released it last year. There's also a live action movie of the variety that doesn't belong on Netflix. Welcome to Racoon City will combine the first two games, with the tone of the film inspired by the remake of Resident Evil 2.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness opens on July 8th.
