The streamer has also released a trailer for the upcoming show, which features the characters of Leon and Claire, among others.

“In the present (2006), a hacking incident occurs on a top secret White House file,” per the official synopsis. “Four agents, including Leon S. Kennedy and Jason, the ‘Hero of Penamstan,’ are invited to the White House to investigate this incident. However, when the lights suddenly go out, they are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies alongside the SWAT team. Afterward, the top secret file is found to be related to a biology laboratory in Shanghai, which Leon and the other three agents decide to investigate for clues. As they head to Shanghai in a cutting-edge submarine, a swarm of rat-like Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.) suddenly attacks, pushing them into a life-or-death situation.”
