The Internet erupted in horniness over Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters. Across memes and discussions on social media, fans are thirsty over the Resident Evil Village vampires. Even on our official podcast, we spoke about how sexy we felt they are, which will make for an interesting horror experience for players, unlike other entries in the long-running franchise.
After the showcase, a Kotaku article came out measuring the surroundings to figure out how tall the mother bloodsucker is, and while that came to be 8′, Takano gave us even more details, and she is taller than expected. With her hat and heels included, she is 9’6 or 2.9m.
On January 25, Deadline reported that actress Jeanette Maus, an actress who played one of the daughters in the upcoming game, had died from colon cancer. A GoFundMe was set up for her expenses, but since she died, fans have been donating to take care of her funeral costs. As of writing, 726 donors have raised over $61,000.
Resident Evil Village comes out May 7 for PS4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, and PC.
