Film will feature appearances by characters from various games in horror series

The official website of Resident Evil: Vendetta (Biohazard: Vendetta), the latest CG anime full-length film based on CAPCOM's Resident Evil (Biohazard) horror game franchise, updated on Thursday to reveal a new visual, the story summary, and the film's May 27 opening date.

The story features Chris, Rebecca, and Leon facing off against a world-famous wanted criminal named Glenn Arias. The Anime NOW news website has translated the film's full story summary into English.

The site previously streamed a promotional video in September.

The film will have a completely original story, and will feature characters from multiple games in the series, including Chris Redfield, Rebecca Chambers, and Leon Kennedy. CAPCOM producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Resident Evil 4, Sengoku Basara) is supervising the project.

Takanori Tsujimoto (The Next Generation -Patlabor-, Ultraman X) is directing the film at Marza Animation Planet, with a script by Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, School-Live!). Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell) is composing the music. Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on, live-action Kiki's Delivery Service) is credited as executive producer.

In a collaboration between the film and Italian motorcycle company Ducati, Resident Evil: Vendetta will feature a scene in which Leon fends off an enemy riding Ducati's newest model, the XDiavel.
