Resident Evil 4 Remake It will include more than one difference from the original, not only in terms of gameplay but also in terms of events and situations that Leon will encounter. In this sense, some of the most attentive fans of detail noted a rather unpleasant detail: apparently in the remake that will be released next year, players will not be able to save “Hewie”, dog Trapped in the trap early in the game, which will obviously run into tragic fate.
In the early stages of Resident Evil 4, players encounter a dog trapped in a bear trap. Some fans called her “Huey”, as Fiona’s loyal companion in Haunting Ground, Capcom’s 2005 survival horror (according to some, it’s exactly the same animal, introduced in RE4 as a sort of Ed Easter egg). Players have two options: leave him to their fate or free him from the trap, thereby saving his life. Choosing the latter, the dog would later offer his hand to Leon during the fight against El Gigante, distracting the creature.
However, apparently, in the Resident Evil 4 remake, Leon will face Hewie when he is now Too late. As we can also see in this clip shared on Twitter by IGN and taken from the gameplay trailer presented in Resident Evil Showcase this week, when Leon explores the jungle, unfortunately, Hewie has already been dead for some time.
It’s unclear why Capcom decided on this drastic change. Of course it is possible that there is a way to somehow save Hewie, but to find out we just have to wait for the game to debut in stores, fingers crossed.
Resident Evil 4 Remake will be available starting from March 23, 2023 For PS5, PS4 and Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC. The game producer revealed that the longevity of the new version will be similar to the original.
