Well, it appears that more incredible things are ahead of Resident Evil. Earlier this year, Netflix ordered a live-action TV adaptation of Capcom’s survival horror game. But the upcoming show won’t be the only thing fans of the franchise will be treated with. Recently, Capcom announced a CG anime series that will feature Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy, the protagonists of 1998’s Resident Evil 2. The upcoming series will debut on Netflix as well, but will be different from the live-action adaptation with Jade and Billie Wesker.
Now, the streaming service has released a teaser for the upcoming animated series. The video introduces the characters in separate locations, so it’s unclear how they will meet. In 1998’s videogame, Leon is a rookie police officer who has to confront a zombie outbreak on his first day on the job. His path will cross with Claire’s, as she strives to save herself from the zombies.
