When Capcom revealed one of the main antagonists for their upcoming Resident Evil Village game, the internet went crazy for her. The horror survival game, which is the latest in the Resident Evil franchise, ain’t even out yet, but the reaction and love for the hulking “Giant Vampire Lady” has been quite overwhelming to say the least.
Her name is Alcina Dimitrescu, or just Lady Dimitrescu, and much about her is still a mystery as the game hasn’t been released yet. And looks like the internet is really smitten with her, even though she’s quite the hulking monster. Capcom is fully aware of this, though. In fact, Tomonori Takano, who serves as the Art Director for Resident Evil Village, recently released a statement regarding Lady Dimitrescu’s sudden popularity. The game’s staff recently released his statement in English via both Facebook and Twitter. It reads:
Hi everyone, I’m Tomonori Takano, Art Director on Resident Evil Village. I wanted to use this opportunity to publicly reflect on the outpour of positivity we’ve received from the fans on our latest announcement. As a representative of the development team, thank you to all the fans who continue to follow us.
Most recently, Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters have received a fair amount of attention, far more than we anticipated. It’s great that they’re able to take the spotlight as icons of Resident Evil Village. Lady Dimitrescu, especially, has received much fanfare both domestically and overseas, which has made all of us in the development team extremely happy. I hear her height is something of interest. If you include her hat and high heels, she’s 2.9m (approximately 9’6”) tall.
These bewitching, vampiric characters are relentless in their pursuit of Ethan, and I can’t wait for you to meet them yourselves when you enter Castle Dimitrescu in May.
Yes folks, he even revealed that she is approximately 9’6” tall! Now that’s one big vampire lady indeed! In fact, many have pointed out that she is even taller than Robert Wadlow, who holds the Guinness World Record for being the tallest man ever at 8 feet and 11 inches.
As for the game itself, Capcom will release the game for Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (via Steam) on 7 May 2021.
