If you’ve been hanging on with eager anticipation for the release date of CGI spin-off Resident Evil: Death Island, then hang no more, as Capcom, and Sony Pictures have revealed that the cool/dopey-looking feature will arrive on physical and digital media on July 25.
The latest in a long-running series of animated movies set within Capcom’s survival horror universe, Death Island will see the A-list team of Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon Kennedy, and Claire Redfield, (oh, and Rebecca Chambers is there too), team up together for the very first time to handle a mutant outbreak on Alcatraz Island. Fans are particularly excited as this is the first time in Resi canon that Kennedy and Valentine have ever crossed paths.
It looks like harmless, monster-mashing fun, with action that you’d expect places its tongue firmly in its cheek, but is probably intended as utterly earnest. This probably will not be the only Resident Evil news we receive this month, as Capcom has recently announced a Capcom Showcase stream to take place this Monday, June 12. We can likely expect updates on updates for titles such as Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village, including the long-awaited “Separate Ways” DLC for the former.
Resident Evil: Death Island launches on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download July 25.
