Resident Evil Village has a photo mode, new footage has confirmed.
IGN published our first look at the promising horror game running on a PlayStation 4 Pro, and at the bottom right of the screen we see that you can press the jump / photo mode radio button (Resident Evil 7 has none of the features). The current scene is played by Lady Dimitrescu.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for years, you know the internet … enjoys Resident Evil Village’s extremely tall vampire lady.
Lady Dimitrescu is something of an internet sensation, and there is plenty of fan art (yes, even that kind of fan art) polished all over the net. Lady Dimitrescu’s cosplay has also taken off. Take a look at this, from 6’9 “model Ekaterina Lisina:
In February, a terrified Capcom fan thanked fans for their … enthusiastic response, with Village’s art director Tomonori Takano saying all the attention was “far more than we expected”.
But Capcom has realized that it’s good here, and in Asia, Lady Dimitrescu uses life-size cardboard cutouts to market Resident Evil Village in stores.
Pictures of the 9’6 “tall antagonist also appear on the side of buses in Hong Kong.
Which brings me nicely into Village’s photo mode, which, yes, I’m sure will be used to capture Lady Dimitrescu in all sorts of … interesting ways.
I hope Capcom knows what it’s about to unleash.
