Resident Evil 4 Remake by Capcom has a lot of Easter eggs, some of which were not in the original version from 2005.
The Resident Evil series is one of the most well-known and popular series ever made. Resident Evil 4 is one of the most popular and well-liked games in the series. Now that the remake is out, millions of fans will finally be able to play this great game from 2005 again.
The remake will be played with sharp eyes and laser focus by the game’s biggest fans. Not only do the game’s graphics look great, but players will also look for Easter eggs that make references to the original game or other games in the series. People who play this remake might also find secrets that were in the original game. But many of these Easter eggs in Resident Evil 4 Remake are not easy to find.
The word “Kendo” is written on Leon’s default gun, the SG-09 R. It’s not easy to see, and only people with very sharp eyes or who have heard about it will be able to find it. If you have played Resident Evil 2, you will know this name.
This is a reference to Gun Shop Kendo and its owner, Robert Kendo. In Resident Evil 2, players can buy weapons at the Gun Shop Kendo. It also suggests that Leon bought the gun he uses at the start of the game from Robert Kendo six years earlier.
Shooting The Lake
The player will see a secret death animation if they shoot the lake where the Del Lago monster lives. After a few shots, the monster will jump out of the lake and eat Leon whole. This was a secret event in the original game, and Capcom decided to include it in the remake as well.
This won’t give the player anything like a trophy or an achievement, but it’s still a cool scene. The fact that it was a secret in the original makes the scene even more memorable. It’s a sure thing that people who played the old game looked at this when they played the new one.
Striker Affecting The Movement Speed
In the original game, an online player who goes by the name “Ditman” found a glitch. He then shared the glitch on a forum. Ditman figured out that Leon could move faster if he aimed the Striker shotgun and quickly switched to a new weapon before the laser pointer on the Striker appeared on the screen.
With this trick, Leon will be able to move about 1.5 times faster. Since then, speedrunners who play Resident Evil 4 have used it all the time. In honor of this, the remake added a charm called Striker that makes the player run 8% faster.
No Thanks, Bro!
“No Thanks, Bro!” is the name of the trophy/achievement the player will get after beating Ramon Salazar. It’s a strange name for a trophy, but anyone who’s played the original game will know this line. Leon’s general attitude is one of the things that has changed in the new version. In the remake, he takes himself much more seriously than he did in the original, where he was more odd and rude.
In the first game, when Leon met Salazar for the first time, Salazar gave a long introduction. After Salazar was done, Leon said, “No thanks, bro!” This line has since become famous. It’s a funny answer that fits perfectly with what we already knew about Leon. In the new version, Leon is a bit more serious. He doesn’t say this line anymore, but Capcom still used it as the name of a trophy to honor it.
Sitting On The Throne
In the first game, players could go back to the castle’s Throne Room and sit on the throne. This shows a quick cutscene of Leon settling in on the throne and making himself at home there. It’s one of the secrets from the first game that many people hoped would be in the remake.
This is included in the remake, which is good news. The same thing can be done here, and pretty much the same scene will happen. After a few seconds of sitting on the throne, a message pops up on the screen that says, “There’s no time to rest.”
Jill Valentine Reference
With this fun Easter egg, Ashley Graham gets in touch with her inner Jill Valentine. In Chapter 14, Leon gives Ashley a push so she can get to the other side of a locked gate and open it. After that, Ashley jokes, “I’m pretty much a master at opening things.”
It’s a joke about one of the silliest lines ever said in the series. This line dates back to the first Resident Evil game, when Barry gave Jill a lockpick and said, “It might come in handy, since you’re a master at opening locks.”
In Resident Evil 4, there are two guns that are nods to other games. The Killer7 magnum gun is one of them, and it is one of the best weapons players can use. What many people don’t know is that it’s named after another shooter game by Capcom called Killer7 (and Grasshopper Manufacture).
The Matilda handgun is another gun whose name comes from another book. The name of this gun comes from the name of the main character in the movie Léon: The Professional. Matilda is the name of the main character, who is played by a young Natalie Portman.
In the first game, music often played when you bought something from a merchant or went into a safe room. Since then, it has become a memorable original soundtrack for the game’s biggest fans. In the remake, the OST no longer plays when Leon buys things from the merchant.
But every once in a while, the notes of the OST can be heard coming from the merchant. What’s funny is that he tries to hum the song, but after a few seconds he starts coughing and can’t go on. Players may no longer hear the original theme, but this is a good enough replacement.
Where We Go Our Separate Ways
At the end of Slope Game, Ada offers to help Leon get off the island in a helicopter. Leon says, “We both know this is where we go our separate ways,” so he says no. In the original, Leon and Ada’s conversation with each other goes in a different direction. It’s a new line of dialogue that may have been added by Capcom to make a reference to a “Separate Ways” game mode from the first game.
There is a mode in Resident Evil 4 where the player can play as Ada Wong. Even though “Separate Ways” isn’t in the remake yet, the line may just be a nod from Capcom to those who liked the option.
Resident Evil 4 Remake can be played on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
