Resident Evil Village is on the way, promising a Gothic horror adventure that'll see Resident Evil 7: Biohazard protagonist Ethan Winters facing down werewolves, goatmen and vampiric witches. That last bit has caught the internet's eye, particularly one towering Lady Alcina Dimitrescu, also known as the Tall Vampire Lady.
The fervor for this statuesque woman hasn't gone unnoticed by Capcom. Today, the official Twitter account shared a message from Resident Evil Village art director Tomonori Takano, who gave us a bit of information we've been dying to know: Lady Dimitrescu is 9'6", or 2.9m, if you include her hat and high heels.
Your love for Lady Dimitrescu is loud and clear. 👒
