There were murmurs of a new film coming to the franchise and it looks like Resident Evil: Vendetta is it and now we have a trailer to look at for the film. Okay, to be honest it really wasn't murmurs but there was word out of Capcom that we should expect to see another CG film in the franchise. Now we have the first look at Resident Evil: Vendetta and then the hopes that it will be coming anywhere outside of Japan sometime in 2017 as it is still only listed for that region and with a Spring 2017 release date for theaters over there.
Of course we say all of that and yet we still have a trailer to get us all excited for Resident Evil: Vendetta and what it could bring to the franchise. Especially as the events below do look like they take place during the first game but it is stated to take place between RE6 and RE7. Now it definitely seems like it has to have a wider release so we are not scratching our heads on gaps in the story. Of course that is if the film here is even directly linked to the games outside of characters and the basic version of the franchise story so far.
Have a look for yourself and then get ready to hope that Resident Evil: Vendetta does finally land outside of Japan. Or at least you can start planning your trip over there and try to make it line up with the film's release. Or just be ready to pirate it if it never leaves the island over there officially.
