Capcom has shared a large gameplay portion for the Resident Evil 4 Remake giving us a look at some new scenes and content.
The gameplay was done to showcase what players can expect the game to play like, but some fans have notice one other change when it comes to the characters.
Most notable is that Ashley, whom we already knew to have changed her outfit from the brief appearances we’ve had of her, is no longer rocking her iconic skirt from the original.
Instead, she has on a pair of skorts with the same color scheme along with tights to seemingly cover her up a bit.

It should be mentioned that these are skorts, not shorts – promotional material shows Ashley appearing to wear a skirt when seeing her from the front.
In the original game, players could attempt to look up her skirt during certain sequences. This would lead to a humorous reaction from her in reach she covers herself and insults Leon for making such a perverted move.
While some may have been hoping for her original outfit to remain, it is entirely possible the original may be obtainable in Resident Evil 4 Remake like how other classic outfits have been for the other RE remakes. It seems that by default her rather famous skirt is gone from the game, but the developers did introduce many new and somewhat hysterical outfits like the Chicken Hat.
However, this may not be surprising to fans as the VR version of Resident Evil 4 was censored to remove certain dialogue for “modern audiences.” This included her line should the player attempt to look up her skirt, even though her animation still remained.
The Resident Evil 4 Remake is launching on March 24th, 2023 for Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. The game will also support PlayStation VR2.
