In the original Resident Evil 4, there's an adorable pup stuck in a bear trap that Leon stumbles upon.

The player can help free the dog from the trap, and the dog will return to help you out in a boss battle a bit later on.

 In Resident Evil 4's upcoming remake, it seems that's no longer the case.

the dog is already dead, leaving you to face the upcoming fight all on your own.

Other RE fans handled the news differently, with some theorizing this represents a "darker, more morbid take" on the events of Resident Evil 4.

Some are frustrated by the change, saying the moment the dog comes back around to help you is part of what gives Resident Evil 4 a wholesome feeling amidst the darkness.
