The Internet Mourns the Dog in Resident Evil 4 Remake

Capcom recently showed off a ton of gameplay for the Resident Evil 4 remake, but fans noticed one important, heartbreaking difference.

In the original Resident Evil 4, there is an adorable puppy trapped in a bear trap that Leon stumbled upon. Players can help free the dog from its trap, and the dog will return a little later to help you in a boss fight.

As you can see in the video below, by the time Leon reaches the trap in the RE4 remake, the dog is already dead and will have to face the next fight all on his own.

RE fans across the internet are mourning the loss of the iconic dog, even the well-known “Can You Pet the Dog?” twitter account He expressed his strong-worded anger at the puppy’s early death.

Other RE fans have treated the news differently, theorizing that this represents a “darker, more morbid view” of the events of Resident Evil 4. The dog is back to help you. That moment in the dark gives Resident Evil 4 a sense of wholesomeness.

Even with the obvious removal of Furry Friends, the Resident Evil 4 remake is shaped to be a faithful homage to the original. We are focused on doing better,โ€ he said.

For more information, you can read IGN’s interview with Resident Evil 4 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, or find out why there are currently no plans for a Code Veronica remake.
