While Resident Evil 4 Remake has been widely praised for how faithful it is to the original title, it has made quite a few changes in key areas. Many character models were redesigned for the remake. Instead of sticking with the original characters, Capcom hired Dutch model Ella Freya as Ashley’s face model.
However, despite Resident Evil 4 Remake having been on store shelves for several weeks, Ella had never actually seen a copy or promo for the title. I went on a trip to the store and decorated the cover of a game for the first time.
You can watch the embedded video below. For the most part, Ella is actually looking for a place to buy a copy in Akihabara. Maybe. Ella is seemingly recognizable at a certain point in the video and this shows just how recognizable she is at the moment.
Eventually, she tracks down several copies and is almost speechless when she sees herself in the game’s promos and trailers. I laughed so I could clearly see the resemblance before I grabbed some copies. Matches video uploaded by Cassina Caradonna (Dina’s face model from The Last of Us Part 2) probably only on its level of sanity.2020.
In other news for Resident Evil 4, fans discovered what happened to Leon’s iconic jacket after being knocked out by Viotor Mendes in the opening, even though the original game was released in 2005. You might think it would just disappear or be destroyed, but the Separate Ways DLC reveals that Ganado actually received it and started wearing it. However, he’s about to attack Ada Wong, so he’s probably not the brightest Ganado.
