06-06-23 | A mere month from now, Resident Evil: Death Island will premiere in Japan. Rather than follow the events of the live action series of feature films, Death Island sets itself apart by directly tying into videogame continuity. This animated feature will be the fifth in a cycle comprising of four films and one series.
The animated series has been going from strength to strength since its inception in 2008 with the release of Resident Evil: Degeneration, gaining momentum after Paul W. S. Anderson’s live action series fizzled out in 2016. Resident Evil: Death Island follows Chris Redfield, as he travels to the infamous Alcatraz prison to thwart a zombie outbreak. The US and Europe will be able to watch the animated feature on VOD and Blu-Ray shortly after its Japanese premiere.
