Capcom and Sony Pictures have confirmed that the latest in the Resident Evil Movie series, dubbed Degeneration, will be released this year.
The duo showed off sneak previews of the fully CG-animated title at last week Comic Con in San Diego, US.
The title will have its theatrical debut in Japan in the Autumn, following on Blu-Ray, DVD and PSP in North America later this year. A PAL release is yet to be confirmed.
Capcom describes the plot as:

Now, in an airport beginning to fill with the undead, the horrific disaster is about to repeat itself…’
