Newly released VR version of Resident Evil 4 has some cut content that includes sexualized Ashley Graham sequences.
|Resident Evil 4 VR Removes Sexualized Ashley Content|
After being launched for over three generation of console systems, 2005 third-person survival horror shooter Resident Evil 4 by developer/publisher Capcom receives VR support and came out earlier as an Oculus Quest 2-exclusive title.
Just as Resident Evil 4 has been updated for a new platform, reports claim that some original content that are currently deemed inappropriate, regarding character of Ashley Graham have been removed from newly released VR version.
Ahead of release, there were reports on Resident Evil 4 VR making some changes to animation and dialogues of Ashley Graham, who is president's daughter and Leon S. Kennedy is sent to bring her home safely after she gets kidnapped.
Resident Evil 4 has some of its sexualized content removed, especially a scene where researcher Luis Sera looks at her breast and jokingly says, "I see, that the president's equipped his daughter with ballistics too", which is excluded in VR port.
In another interaction with Leon, if player tries to look up her skirt, Ashley will quickly cover her legs, call him a pervert and tell him to stop. Although her dialogue in this sequence is removed, original animation is still there for some reason.
RE4 ending would have Ashley asking Leon if he is up for "some overtime" after taking her back home and it is removed now. A line where Leon would tell government agent Ingrid Hannigan that he thought she'd be older is also taken out.
Oculus parent company Facebook has confirmed making these changes in a statement saying, RE4 VR is updated for a modern audience. None of these changes were previously made public and players only found this when they bought it.
Resident Evil 4 was remastered for VR from ground up, in a joint effort by Armature, Capcom and Oculus Studios. Dev teams have worked very hard to deliver an immersive experience and made necessary changes to fit today's standards.
