A Lollipop Chainsaw Remake Is Coming Next Year
Publisher Dragami Games has announced that a Lollipop Chainsaw remake is coming out in 2023. However, an official title and the platforms have yet to be revealed.
Led by the original game’s producer, Yoshimi Yasuda, it will be developed by “a combination of development staff from the original version, including Yasuda as producer, and new development staff from Dragami Games”. According to Yasuda, the remake will feature more realistic graphics and a brand new soundtrack (because they lost the license to the original game’s music).
Lollipop Chainsaw was originally released in 2012 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It features Juliet Starling (voiced by Tara Strong), a cheerleader zombie hunter fighting zombies in a fictional California high school, and the game was a collaboration between game designer Suda51 and filmmaker James Gunn (best known for the Guardians Of The Galaxy movies, The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker).
Speaking with IGN, Yasuda explained:
“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. 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.”
