Resident Evil Village director Kento Kinoshita has revealed that Lady Dimitrescu has been made slightly shorter for her appearance as a playable character in the upcoming Mercenaries content in the Winters’ Expansion.
Speaking with Polygon, Kinoshita-san revealed that Lady D’s height, which stands a towering 9ft 6 inches, was a bit of a problem during development. As such, a few tweaks were made to accommodate the villainess.
Lady Dimitrescu’s height brought up a lot of challenges during development, but in the end we were able to implement her with a giant stature, taller than any of the other characters.
For The Mercenaries, it’s necessary that the player can control their character easily, and to make that possible we did adjust her height to a little under nine feet tall. At that height, the player just barely avoids bumping into the ceiling.
Resident Evil Village was released for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One in May 2021, and you can read our full review here. We went hands-on with the PSVR 2 version of the game at TGS 2022, and you can read our impression here.
The Winters’ Expansion is slated for release on October 28, 2022 and includes the Mercenaries: Additional Orders, the third-person perspective, and the Shadows of Rose DLC.
