Netflix Releases New RESIDENT EVIL Infinite Darkness Character Art
The new RESIDENT EVIL Infinite Darkness CG anime series is coming to Netflix soon on July 8. To celebrate, the streaming service has just released brand new character art for the series which include fan-favourites Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as well series original characters, Shen May and Jason, captain of the U.S. Army Mad Dogs.
In the new RESIDENT EVIL Infinite Darkness character art, Leon and Jason are seen with grim expressions on their faces, as though they are unsure of what they are about to face. Claire, on the other hand, is seen searching for something with the series’ trademark flashlight in one hand, heightening the suspense in the scenario. Shen May is enigmatic since she looks to be dealing with something troubling.
How will the destiny of these four people connect as they pursue each of their investigations? What, furthermore, is the vast conspiracy underlying the White House hacking issue and the dread that lurked underneath the catastrophe in Penamstan six years ago?
So what’s happening in 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 centre 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. Afterwards, 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…
