The favorite action game of many male gamers Lollipop Chainsaw has “returned” according to the confirmation from the old publisher of the game.
Yoshimi Yasuda was previously the CEO of Kadokawa Games, which published the Grasshopper Manufacture Lollipop Chainsaw and Killer is Dead titles in Japan. He is also an executive producer on both titles. Last month, it was announced that Yasuda would be leaving Kadokawa and would be forming a new company called Dragami Games, and it looks like Lollipop Chainsaw will be one of the first titles from the new company to be developed.
“Lollipop Chainsaw is back by publisher Dragami Games” Yasuda tweeted on Tuesday. “Please look forward to it” is the short status line that he wants to send to the fans. It’s unclear whether Yasuda’s tweet refers to the remake, or the sequel, but either way it will mark the first time in two generations that players will be able to re-enjoy the insane gameplay and interesting as Lolipop Chainsaw.
Lollipop Chainsaw was released in 2012 on Xbox 360 and PS3, and was never re-released after that. The game is not backward compatible on Xbox and is not listed among PS3 games nor included in the new PS Plus service. Therefore, gamers have no way to play the game on current systems, and the PC version has never appeared. Suda51 and co-writer James Gunn have yet to mention an apparent revival of Lollipop Chainsaw, although both celebrated the title’s 10th anniversary on their Twitter profiles earlier this week.
Lollipop Chainsaw is admired for its top-notch storyline and erotic action style. The game follows Juliet Starling (voiced by Tara Strong), a cheerleader who must save her school from a zombie invasion.
Juliet with her boyfriend Nick unfortunately lost his head when attacked by zombies, because he did not like to be away from his lover, so his head was attached to her belt. The game received generally positive reviews upon launch, which critics forgave its sometimes repetitive gameplay as the game’s humor and unique style were listed as rare.
