Resident Evil Confidential Report, known as Biohazard confidential report (バイオハザード confidential report) in Japan, is a turn-based strategy game series by Capcom released for the mobile phone in 2006 and is another installment in the Resident Evil franchise. Currently the series contains four titles. Confidential Report is markedly different from its predecessors. It uses turn-based movement and combat utilizing a grid system. Like Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2, each game features two scenarios with two different characters.
- Tyler Hamilton - A rookie RPD officer, Tyler had been assigned to guard an Umbrella laboratory. After the explosion that released the virus trapped Tyler, he made a desperate bid to escape back to the police station. After escaping, Tyler responded to the distress call from the school dormitory and surmised that no student would have the number for the emergency hotline and sets out to investigate.
- Naomi McClain - An FBI Agent who was outside of the police station at the time of the explosion. She had come to Raccoon City to uncover the truth of Umbrella's experiments and after the explosion, sets off into the facility to recover her missing informants. When Tyler receives the distress call from the school, Naomi intercepts it and decodes a message from an informant.
File #1 - Rookie cop Tyler Hamilton has been assigned to guard the Umbrella Storage Facility in Raccoon City when an explosion from underground rocks the foundations. Tyler is knocked down, and trapped inside the Storage Facility, however as he wakes up he notices hoards of the undead coming towards him.
Meanwhile, FBI Agent, Naomi McClain has been sent into the city to investigate the experiments of this facility, and locate what the previous agent could not; concrete evidence direct from secret FBI informants working within Umbrella's ranks.
File #2 - After surviving the horrors of the infested Storage Facility, Tyler has been holding up in a local police station. Suddenly, the distress alarm rings from Raccoon University. Governed by his sense of duty, Tyler bravely sets off to the university believing there to be survivors.
Unknown to Tyler, Naomi also picks up the distress call, and realizes that there is a strong possibility that the alarm was raised by one of the informants she is looking for. She sets off to the university to find more clues to Umbrella and rescue this vital person.
File #3 - Having made it back to relative safety of the local police station, Raccoon Museum alarm rings, so Tyler decides that he had better investigate, again believing there to be survivors hiding inside.
Naomi also figures that the alarm could have been raised by an informant so also heads off to the museum to investigate.
File #4 - With Tyler being tracked by the Special Forces he decides that the source of all this madness is the Storage Facility, and the Special Research Laboratory B situated beneath it. Tyler ventures deep underground and discovers just how sinister Umbrella is.
With 3 informants rescued, and the data disc and sample in hand, Naomi realizes she still needs test subjects to complete her evidence and so goes to the underground facility to finish her mission.
- Tyler Hamilton has similarities to Leon S. Kennedy such as wearing practically the same RPD uniform and being a rookie officer and it being his first day on the job when the outbreak occurs.
- Much like Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2, Confidential Report allows the player to choose, from the start, who they would like to play as.
- Much like ''Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Raccoon City is eradicated at the conclusion of the story.
- In Confidential Report, players will travel to the RPD and an Umbrella Lab, much like Resident Evil 2.
- Much like Resident Evil 2 and ''Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Tyler and Naomi will cross paths several times in the game, much like Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield and Jill Valentine and Carlos Olivera, they'll interact but never stay with one another.
- This is the first Resident Evil game where you fight human enemies (The USS agents)
