Shadows of Rose, the impending downloadable content for Resident Evil Village, is drawing near. With it comes a fresh take on the Mercenaries gameplay option, which was previously made available to players. When the future Gold Edition of Resident Evil Village is released, players will have the option to play as either Chris Redfield, Heisenburg, or the infamous Lady Dimitrescu.

Unfortunately, this option will only be available to buyers of the Gold Edition. A minor tweak was required to make Lady D playable, in case you were wondering how that’s even feasible, considering that she’s well over nine feet tall.

In an interview with Polygon, the director of the Winters’ Expansion, Kento Kinoshita, disclosed that the height of Lady D was a bit of a challenge when it came to allowing players to step into her boots. According to Kinoshita, the producers of the game wanted players to have an easy time controlling Lady D, so they shrank her to a size that was a little less than nine feet in order to prevent players from colliding with the ceiling.

However, there is no need to be concerned because Lady D’s Mercenaries’ stature is significantly larger than that of any other playable character.

According to Kinoshita, the development of Lady Dimitrescu’s height presented a number of obstacles, but, in the end, we were able to integrate her with a colossal stature, making her taller than any of the other characters in the game. It is essential to the gameplay of The Mercenaries that the player be able to handle their character easily, and in order to make this possible, we lowered her height so that she stands just a few inches shy of nine meters. At that height, the player only narrowly escapes colliding with the ceiling by a hair’s breadth.
