The upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake has cut one of Leon S. Kennedy’s best lines from the original game.
When Leon first enters the Salazar Castle, he is greeted by Ramon Salazar, winged by the quite clearly, Xenomorph-inspired Verdugo heavies. On behalf of Lord Sadler, Ramon greets Leon and Ashley into his home. “I’ve been expecting you, my bredrins,” says Ramon, before proceeding to ask Leon to hand Ashely over. Leon replies “No, thanks, bro.”
When the original Resident Evil 4 was released in 2005, it was a very different time compared to today. The “No, thanks bro” line was no doubt an attempt to make Leon sound witty with a hint of cool attitude and humour.
However, while the remake will no doubt retain some of its original cheesy charms, it seems that Capcom is going for something a little more gritty. So, in the remake, Leon now replies: “Yeah, fat chance Ramon. The girl's just fine. With me.”
You can check out a handy comparison video from IGN detailing the first interaction of Leon S. Kennedy and Ramon Salazar from 2005 original and the 2023 remake.
It’s a shame that this line never remained intact. Personally, if I had to, I would have gone for “bruh” instead of “bro”, but it is what it is. Thankfully, at least, from what I hear, the epic “where did everyone go…bingo?” line remains in the remake.
However, this is not the only cheesy (and cringy) line to be removed from the Resident Evil 4 remake. In the original game during the Cabin Fight segment, Luis Sera refers to Ashley as having “ballistics” in relation to her chest. This line was also cut from the RE4 VR port on Meta Quest 2.
During the most recent gameplay trailer, Capcom teased that a Resident Evil 4 playable demo would be coming soon, but no date was mentioned.
