Resident Evil: Death Island announced, coming this year

Resident Evil: Death Island announced, coming this year

Oh, good.

Resident Evil: Death Island, a sequel to Vendetta, is on its way to fans this summer and oh, boy. It will definitely be residentest of evils.

Look, I've not got high hopes and I apologise to Capcom if any of them are reading this news story. I am comparatively new to Resident Evil so I thought I'd watch Infinite Darkness, the animated drama from a few years ago, on Netflix for a little extra Resi treat. It looked good and, just like Leon's haircut, that's about as much as it could offer. Claire was a supporting character, the story was half-hearted, but the rats scene was gnarly.

Check out the trailer for Resident Evil: Death Island here:

"D.S.O. agent Leon S. Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Dr. Antonio Taylor from kidnappers, when a mysterious woman thwarts his pursuit," reads the synopsis of Death Island. I won't give you three guesses to work out who that woman might be.

"Meanwhile, B.S.A.A. agent Chris Redfield is investigating a zombie outbreak in San Francisco, where the cause of the infection cannot be identified. The only thing the victims have in common is that they all visited Alcatraz Island recently. Following that clue, Chris and his team head to the island, where a new horror awaits them."

Per the trailer, Leon's back on his motorbike again, though it remains to be seen if he will be able to outrun the amphibious threats that Death Island will throw at our heroes. We see a cage of B.O.W.s escape into the sea, looking a little like creatures from the Black Lagoon, as well as a horrific corruption of a shark cutting through the water towards the night-vision camera.

It's possible Rebecca Chambers shows up too, as a coffee cup has her name written on it (her order is a caramel macchiato with whipped cream). Death Island is set for the summer of 2023 though it's not known whether this one will hit Netflix like Infinite Darkness did.
