Leon’s days take a turn for the worse when he enters the Spanish countryside to retrieve the president’s daughter. Leon wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it’s clear he was given this mission because of his knowledge, experience, and abilities displayed during the Raccoon City debacle. .
Resident Evil 4 Remake strives to bring the story to a new generation of fans, but the developers couldn’t help but throw in a bit of a self-referential Easter egg that referenced the original adventure and other inspirations from the game. Plus, there are subtle details that are too easy to miss on the average first-time playthrough.
8 Cash charms feature original characters.
The Merchant is retelling his famous joke from the original game.
In the shooting range, you have to shoot moving targets, increasing the difficulty. After successfully completing a round at Range, you can earn tokens to purchase randomized charms for your inventory.
Equipping these charms will provide Leon with specific buffs, depending on the charm and its rarity. But the visual treat for fans is that each charm is the original Resident Evil 4 character or item model design.
7 ring the bells of the village church
If you’ve played the game, you’re undoubtedly familiar with one of the most iconic sequences that occur at the beginning of the game. In this sequence, Leon is attacked by an endless mob of maniacal villagers.
Here you’ll have to survive rake-wielding farmers, hatchet-throwing workers, chainsaw dudes like Jason Voorhees, and avoid small settlements. Of course, the terror ends when the church bells ring, driving all the raiders away from Leon.
But what if you could skip that whole horrifying affair altogether, or at least end it sooner?
You can see the bell tower in the distance. If you can secure a vantage point on the roof, you can ring the bell to end hostilities. Hitting with a pistol is a little harder, but it might be easier with a scoped weapon on your second playthrough.
6 “Master of Unlocking”
The Resident Evil series isn’t always right in its dialogue. Still, even in the modern remake, Leon is seen spouting one-liners perfectly suited to ’80s action movies.
In the Resident Evil 4 remake, Ashley actually mentions one of the most ridiculous lines in the original Resident Evil. Barry Burton invites Jill Valentine to lockpick a mysterious mansion in the Arklay Mountains.
“It may be convenient for you, who is a master of unlocking, to bring it.” At one point in the remake, when Ashley crawls down the aisle to unlock a door, she says, “I’m almost an unlocking master.”
Five shooting the lake
Ganados wasn’t the only thing Leon had to worry about in his first Resident Evil 4 adventure. He also had to watch out for giant lake monsters that threatened to swallow him whole.
In the original 2004 release, you were able to shoot the lake from the dock before encountering the monster later in the boss fight.
In the Resident Evil 4 remake, this shocking detail has indeed been recreated. The process is the same, just approach the lake at the dock and shoot into the water. Immediately, a short cinematic plays with the monster charging onto the screen.
Fans of the original Resident Evil 4 may notice that Leon’s primary knife is not designed in the same way as it was in the 2004 version of the game. That’s because we added a clever reference to Leon’s first day of dark work.
A quick look at the description of the knife in your inventory reveals that it refers to where you obtained the RPD.
Now, Marvin from Resident Evil 2, a dying police officer presents this blade to Leon.
It’s no surprise that Leon kept that knife nearby for years after getting over his nightmare in Raccoon City. will be required.
The knife may not be Leon’s only memorabilia from Raccoon City. Remember gun shop owner Robert Kendo? Encounter a soul that has been tortured by
He laments the infection of his wife and daughter. The next night, Leon and Ada enter Robert’s shop and see her daughter turning into a zombie.
It must be a memory with Leon when he left Raccoon City. Robert Kendo’s plight was representative of what had happened to the entire town. Looking at Leon’s SG-09R custom handgun, “Kendo” is engraved on the side. It’s a cool reference to a poignant moment in the Raccoon City disaster.
2 throw eggs at people
Ever been so sick and tired of NPCs that you wanted to give them a little bang? There is no problem even if it is depleted).
Take an egg from your inventory and throw it in Ashley’s face. She is annoyed by the move and she looks so silly. Don’t like merchant prices? Throw an egg in his face. it will show him.
1 Leon the Professional
You can get Matilda from the merchant in the middle of Chapter 8. You may wonder why the gun has the strange name Matilda. Now, there are clearly some similarities to the famous Luc Besson-directed film, Leon the Professional, which some of you may have heard of.
The film is about an Italian contract killer named Leon who eventually takes over as a child protégé after his family is murdered by a criminal kingpin. The Matilda of the Gun is named after this little girl portrayed on screen by actress Natalie Portman.
To further the reference to this movie in Resident Evil 4, the difficulty setting is designated as “Professional”. At this stage, Leon is certainly a pro. He only gains cat ears so he can fire this pup regardless of his ammo supply.
