Resident Evil CG Flick Still Due This Year

Though Capcom has remained rather quiet about the North American release of the computer-generated feature Resident Evil: Degeneration, senior PR director Chris Kramer has affirmed that the movie will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD later this year.

Set seven years after the events of the first Resident Evil game and detailing the latest zombie-killing adventures of RE2 protagonists Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, the all-CG feature is being co-directed by Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayash.
