Featuring Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, and Rebecca Chambers (not yet seen in any promotional material), Vendetta is said to be a sendup of the franchise’s roots in horror. Judging by the trailer, the overall tone certainly seems to be a bit darker than both Resident Evil: Degeneration and Resident Evil: Damnation, the two previous CGI films.
Resident Evil: Vendetta will release in Japan come Spring, 2017 — though a release date has not been set for other countries.
The hype is real! The first two weren’t perfect, but are miles ahead of those live-action movies Paul W.S. Anderson likes to dump unto the world. This has the potential to be the best of them.
