While the live-action films may be coming to an end with The Final Chapter, Capcom has more big screen Resident Evil goodness on tap for 2017.

After originally announcing the flick in October of last year, the Japanese giant has finally offered up the first look at its computer-generated Resident Evil film. Dubbed Biohazard: Vendetta (and presumably dubbed Resident Evil: Vendetta for western audiences), the film taps the talents of veteran studio Marza Animation Planet and takes place between the events of Resident Evil 6 and Resident Evil 7 as series vets like Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Rebecca Chambers make a return. Better yet, longtime video game series producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi — who’s been with Capcom since Resident Evil debuted back in 1996 — is onboard as a supervisor while The Grudge creator Takashi Shimizu is executive-producing.

Vendetta is currently slated for a theatrical release in Japan sometime next spring and will likely head westward — whether or not it comes to the likes of American theaters remains to be seen — in the latter part of 2017.
