'Lollipop Chainsaw' full remake in the works; launches next year

Lollipop Chainsaw, the 2012 action game made in collaboration with game director Suda51, movie director James Gunn and producer Yoshimi Yasuda, is getting a full remake, IGN has confirmed and later confirmed by the producer. This remake will involve, Yasuda says, "a more realistic approach to graphics" and new audio due to licensing issues.


"Unfortunately, various factors resulted in things making it so that fans can no longer easily play Lollipop Chainsaw, and it has been some time since players have not been able to access the game on current consoles," Yasuda said. "We, the original development staff on Lollipop Chainsaw, think of the game as very precious to us, and did not want to leave it in limbo, where players who want to play it cannot. As such, we purchased the Lollipop Chainsaw intellectual property from Kadokawa Games, and decided to develop a remake. We have already contacted Warner Bros. about development, and are being supported by them in this endeavor."

The Lollipop Chainsaw remake has a 2023 launch window but the platforms on which it will launch have yet to be announced.

Awesome. I'll probably replay the original, because as far as I remember, I haven't actually finished it.

Nice! This is one of the couple reasons I still have my 360 out. Not that I've touched it in a long time but it's there for this game.

OMG! OMG! OMG! YES!
Finally some great news! :)
I never had the opportunity to get the original one, because at the time I didn't have any consoles and now that I have them, I can't get them nowhere, because they aren't on the PS Store and importing a physical copy costs an arm and a leg....so yeah.
Can't wait for it! :)

Its a Suda51 game, is that not enough to get the idea?

No? Okay, Its like Army of Darkness but instead of Ash you get a cheerleader as your protagonist. Its pretty goddamn fun.
Still. What the fuck is it. I've never heard about Suda51. Also Army of Darkness doesn't ring any bells. So thanks for your explaination but i don't think i got 1% further then before i asked what it was

Suda51, real name Goichi Suda, is the CEO of Grasshopper Studios, is best known for their cult classic games like killer7, No More Heroes, Shadows of the Damned, and Killer is Dead, among other titles. The main hallmarks tend to be highly violent action, juxtaposition of said violence with comedic elements, and pseudo-philosophical themes that seem to exist just to be confusing (I might be wrong about this part, haven't played in a while).
Army of Darkness refers to the Evil Dead franchise (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evil_Dead), specifically the third film, which leaned a bit more heavily into its comedic elements whereas the previous two films were primarily horror with a smattering of comedy.

If the dude said No More Heroes, Then i said YES, I know that one. I played it on Wii. Awesome game. But instead he daid Army of Darkness and i was like what the fuck are you talking about. But thanks for clarifying. You deserve a Like. :)

The devs seems to have good intentions... But warner? I wonder how many "nowadays" quotas they'll have to meet. Also expect the game having like 3 versions with 2 costing a premium. Keep it on Japan man, well too late for that.

Nice! After completing the No More Horeos trifecta (and the shameful TSA) I’ve been meaning to pick this up. Hopefully it’s better than it was on-release - it seemed a little plastic-y at the time.

The original never really appealed to me (most of his games have not but I certainly respect them anyway) so doubt I would be getting this unless it is some kind of tour de force of gameplay (more than one silly action game has made my list by virtue of its gameplay being tight).

Happy to see it getting another kick at the cat though.

    imo without at least a 30lbs dumbbell you won't get a lot of use out of em - and these max out at like 10lbs for each arm

    first of all, there should be exactly zero reasons to place your sweaty balls on any of the equipment - generally you are supposed to wear clothing at the gym
