Over the years, the Resident Evil saga has gone on to become one of Capcom’s most lucrative franchises. Originally starting life as a video game, the franchise has since expanded to include comics, toys, and movies. The story follows the Umbrella Corporation and its quest to create biological weapons for military applications. However, when the T-Virus (one of their deadliest strains) is unleashed upon the world, the occupants of Raccoon City quickly become infected and begin a plague of biblical proportions – the major side effect being the reanimation of dead tissue. With the inevitable zombie apocalypse consuming the world, the story follows the survivors and their quest to escape the zombie horde before they too become infected.
Personally, I adore the Resident Evil saga. My love affair began with the sublime Resident Evil 2 video game which proved to be the definitive and most immersive zombie game ever made.
Exciting times for zombie fans!
