Between which games does Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is taking place?
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness takes place a few years after the iconic and revolutionary success Resident Evil 4, where Leon went to Spain on a very special mission to save the daughter of the American president, because after the Raccoon City disaster he was recruited by the president and became one of his special agents. It was in 2004 and Endless darkness takes place later, in 2006.
Strictly speaking of games, for Claire Redfield, the story unfolds between Resident Evil: Code Veronica which took place in 1998 and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 which took place in 2011.
But Endless darkness isn’t the only story Leon and Claire team up in after Raccoon City. One year before Endless darkness, however, in 2005 Leon and Claire reunited in another bio-crisis which was shown in the 2008 animated film Resident Evil: Degeneration. There, Leon, the US special agent, and Claire, who has partnered with the TerraSave organization, face a new threat. Degeneration is recognized as canon and matches the timeline of the games. We can therefore probably expect references to the events of Degeneration as well as.
What is the plot of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness?
Netflix has released a fairly comprehensive synopsis for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, something which does not happen very often and which is certainly good to see after several months of absolute silence:
“In 2006, there were traces of improper access to secret presidential files found in the White House network. US Federal Agent Leon S. Kennedy is part of the group invited to the White House to investigate this incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies. .
Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a mysterious image drawn by a young person in a country she has visited, while giving her support to the refugees. Haunted by this drawing, which seems to be the victim of a viral infection, Claire launches her own investigation.
The next morning, Claire goes to the White House to ask for the construction of a wellness center. There, she has a chance to find Leon and takes the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize some kind of connection between the White House zombie outbreak and the bizarre drawing, but he tells Claire that there is no relationship and leaves. Over time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant lands lead to events that shake the nation deep within itself.
Who voices Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield?
It is with great pleasure that we can say that the main duo of Infinite Darkness, the iconic characters of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, will be voiced by two people already well known and much loved in the resident Evil fandom: Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello. Apostolides and Panisello voiced Leon and Claire in the massive success that was the Resident Evil 2 remake released in 2019. This was announced on March 12, 2021 by Netflix.
