    Liking it so far. They kept the gore as much as possible in it. Despite it being animated it still gives you that eerie feeling

    Can't wait to hear what the plot will be for the series, quite hyped to see Claire and Leon back at it again.

    As for a side note, I posted these news under "User Submitted News" around ~3 hours or so ago:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/residen...a-new-re-cgi-series-coming-to-netflix.574585/

    Not complaining, but maybe it'll be good to have discussion made into the other one to keep this one clean?
    Or making the source the other one, not sure :P

    I watch the trailer on this and liked the direction they are taking, it’s like the RE engine ,hopefully they have a good script I’ll definitely watch it can’t be worse then the live action movies

    It wont last long, netflix have a record of making a hype and killing it off after a season or two, take the hype with cobra kia taking full credit and youtube did the 3 seasons.

    They just throw money and brag they did the work.

    I cant see them keeping this going.

    So, it's basically RE Revelations 3 but with no player input.

    Saw Castlevania series on Netflix. I love dit. Hate series but I have to be patient, lol. Can't wait for this! I am huge fan of Castlevania and Resident Evil!

    Hope to see Chris Redfield. He is my favorite character. Don't liked Leon, thought.

    Looking good, hope it won't be 100% commercial and that they will do some efforts to make it with it.

    I'd rather have it exist than not.

    I wonder why they didn't use the same character designs from the RE2 remake? The source models were probably high quality enough to use in a production like this. I know it's probably due it being developed by separate studios, but it doesn't seem like it'd be too much of an effort to share assets.

    1. Indeed, they are different studios. Most of the CGI movies have been done by either Sony Japan or some other movie subsidiary based in Japan. The game studios have almost no involvement in terms of actual modelling and CG when it comes to the movies
    2. The models from RE2 don't make sense in a storyline that takes place almost 20+ years after the Raccoon City incident.
    3. If thy were to use those as base, they'd need to rework them heavily to match the current versions of both Claire and Leon that have been used in anything starting from RE6.
    4. At that point they might as well just redo the models from scratch.
    5. While doing them in the RE engine might be optimal, this is not a game, it's an actual movie which requires fast-moving scenes, flashy effects and such. Doing it entirely in the RE Engine might be really cost-inducing and not suitable for a production like this. It's no wonder why such technologies like the ones being made for current games haven't been used in a more mainstream or frequent manner in movie studios.

    I guess this is Capcom's way of apologizing for making VII and VIII focus on Ethan rather than characters people actually want to see.

    No plot details are known right now. It very well could be a sequel to the CGI films (which themselves are canon to the games, of course), or it could be its own thing entirely.
