Resident Evil: Degeneration (バイオハザード ディジェネレーション biohazard DEGENERATION) is the first full-length CG animation feature based upon the Resident Evil series of games. It was announced by Capcom and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan on October 29, 2007.

Unlike the live-action Resident Evil film franchise, Degeneration is set within the same canon universe as the original video games, taking place "seven years from Raccoon City".[1] The teaser included with the Resident Evil: Extinction DVD and Blu-ray Disc confirmed the appearance of Leon Scott Kennedy and Claire Redfield. The film made its premiere in Japan on October 11, 2008 at the Tokyo Game Show, and was released nationwide one week later on October 18, before coming to DVD and Blu-ray in North America on December 27, 2008.
