Resident Evil 4 VR is a full remake of Capcom’s horror classic, except in virtual reality. But some things have been left behind in the past as Facebook confirmed certain dialogue and animations have been removed for a modern audience.
Specifically, Resident Evil 4 VR has removed certain suggestive dialogue related to Ashley Graham, the president’s daughter Leon Kennedy is tasked with rescuing. This includes a line from another character, Luis, referencing Ashley’s body.
Furthermore, you won’t be able to look up Ashley’s skirt during certain areas of the game and the corresponding animation has been removed.
In a statement from a Facebook spokesperson, they said, “Oculus Studios, Armature, and Capcom partnered closely to remaster Resident Evil 4 from the ground up for VR. This includes immersive environments and high-resolution graphics. It also includes select changes to in-game dialogue and animations that we believe will update Resident Evil 4 for a modern audience.”
Ogling Ashley isn’t really a core part of the Resident Evil 4 experience so it’s hard to say that this substantially changes the game. Though if you feel strongly this content still exists in one of the many, many other versions of Resident Evil 4.
Potentially more disappointing is the news that Resident Evil 4 VR doesn’t include any of the extra modes like Mercenaries or Separate Ways. For our full impressions, read our Resident Evil 4 VR review.
