RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness Special character art featuring fan favorites Leon and Claire, plus cast members Jason and Shen May!

Known as the gold standard of survival horror games with over 110 million units shipped worldwide, Resident Evil is continuing its 25th anniversary celebration with the upcoming premiere of the original CG anime series, RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness, launching exclusively on Netflix on July 8 this year.

The special character art have been released for fan-favorite Leon and Claire, plus the new cast members Jason and Shen May!

Leon and Jason are featured with stern expressions on their faces, uncertain of what they might face. Claire, on the other hand, is pictured holding a series’ classic flashlight in one hand as she searches for something, highlighting the tension in the scene. Shen May is somewhat mysterious as she appears to be facing something disconcerting.

As they proceed with each of their investigations, how will the fates of these four individuals intertwine? And furthermore, what is the massive conspiracy behind the White House hacking incident and the terror hidden behind the tragedy in Penamstan six years ago?

MORE ABOUT RESIDENT EVIL: INFINITE DARKNESS:

Six years ago (2000), the helicopter belonging to the U.S. special forces who were intervening in the Penamstan civil war fell from the sky. The U.S. Army Mad Dogs, who were in the same battleground, refused orders from the command center to stand their ground and instead went to save survivors of the crash. However, the special forces were already annihilated. The Mad Dogs, led by their captain Jason, were also forced to escape in order to survive. 

However, in that place, Jason and his unit saw the supposedly dead special forces moving in strange ways...

In the present (2006), a hacking incident occurs on a top secret White House file. Four agents, including Leon S. Kennedy and Jason, the “Hero of Penamstan,” are invited to the White House to investigate this incident. However, when the lights suddenly go out, they are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies alongside the SWAT team. Afterward, the top secret file is found to be related to a biology laboratory in Shanghai, which Leon and the other three agents decide to investigate for clues. As they head to Shanghai in a cutting-edge submarine, a swarm of rat-like Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.)  suddenly attacks, pushing them into a life-or-death situation.

Meanwhile, while staying in Penamstan to provide support for refugees, Terra Save staff member Claire Redfield encounters a strange image drawn by a nonverbal boy. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to depict a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation. She eventually finds a terrifying experiment that was conducted during the Penamstan civil war.

Leon and Claire draw closer to an unimaginable truth that all began in Penamstan. They also discover that a terror that can shatter peace is slowly approaching...
