Story[edit | edit source]

Six years ago, Leon Kennedy survived the destruction of Raccoon City, as seen in Resident Evil 2. Since the events of that day, he's become a highly-trained government agent, answerable only to the President of the United States. The Umbrella corporation, which was responsible for the Raccoon City outbreak, has been driven out of business by the American government.

After several successful missions, Leon was supposed to move on to a job as a bodyguard for the President's family. On what would have been his first day, though, the President's daughter Ashley Graham was kidnapped. Leon was placed on the team dedicated to finding and recovering Ashley, and soon afterwords, is sent to investigate an anonymous tip. Ashley has reportedly been sighted in a rural village in western Europe.

When Leon gets there, he finds that the villagers, called Los Ganados, are hostile towards outsiders, and that all of them apparently belong to a bizarre cult called Los Illuminados...
