Ashley’s skirt animations are in Resident Evil 4 Remake despite changes

Resident Evil 4 Remake Removes Ashley's Skirt Thumbnail

Fans of the original Resident Evil 4 have discovered that some of the animations where players attempt to look up Ashley’s skirt are still in the game.

When the new remake of Resident Evil 4 was announced, fans were quick to point out that character Ashley Graham looked quite a bit different.

Back in 2005 she had a shorter skirt and when players tried to look under it she had an animation where she blocked their view with her hands.

In the weeks leading up to the remake, the interaction became a focus of renewed controversy when players who thought the interaction was tasteless clashed with fans who either desired the fanservice, or just desired a more authentic experience when compared to the original.

Now that the game is out, the thriving mod community for the game has been hard at work poring through files for their own projects.

However, one user discovered the animation still in the files and other players have managed to trigger the animation in-game despite it no longer making as much sense.

This has led to fans speculating that the design change for Ashley came from higher up in the business end of the game’s development, or that it was left behind as an Easter Egg for fans of the original.

The changes to the game haven’t stopped the modding community however, who have gone so hard that even Capcom asked them to calm down a little.

The remake of Resident Evil 4 is now available for Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. You can check out our review for it here.
