Resident Evil Village's Lady Dimitrescu has quickly become a popular character, inspiring cosplay, memes, and some really amazing fan art. The upcoming antagonist has clearly struck a chord with fans, and a significant part of that is due to her intimidating stature. In a new Tweet, Resident Evil Village art director Tomonori Takano acknowledged the character's fast rise in popularity, and even used the opportunity to reveal her height: 9'6! Given the fact that the character could be seen towering over Ethan Winters in the recent Resident Evil Showcase, this isn't too surprising, but fans now have a definitive answer!
The Tweet from Takano can be found embedded below.
Your love for Lady Dimitrescu is loud and clear. 👒
Here's a message from our RE Village art director Tomonori Takano, along with a very curious fact you may have wondered about: pic.twitter.com/Lj4m5pN2dJ— Resident Evil (@RE_Games) February 2, 2021
For Takano and the rest of the game's art team, it truly must be amazing to see this kind of support for one of their creations. A lot of effort goes into every facet of a game's development, and it's easy for some elements of the process to go unappreciated by fans. It's not every day that a new video game character takes off the way that Lady Dimitrescu has, and that's very much a testament to the efforts of the game's art team. Resident Evil Village certainly looks like it's going to be a stunning title!
It will be interesting to see whether or not the fanfare surrounding Lady Dimitrescu will drop-off after the game releases. The character and her daughters seem like they'll be a force to be reckoned with in the game; players might find the character a bit less seductive after they've been forced to actually contend with her and rest of the inhabitants of Dimitrescu Castle! Still, the character's design will likely help her stay a fan favorite for a long time to come.
