Lollipop Chainsaw returns, and this time it will be in charge of Dragami Games. CEO Yoshimi Yasuda announced this on Twitter.
Yoshida simply says, “Lollipop Chainsaw is back from Dragami Games. Please look forward to it.” What he means by this is not clear. It could potentially be a remaster on newer consoles, or it could be a sequel to the first game.
According to CVGYoshida was previously CEO of Kadokawa Games, where he worked for 14 years. Kadokawa Games also published Lollipop Chainsaw, which was developed by Grasshopper Manufacture. Last month, Yoshida left Kadokawa and started Dragami Games.
Earlier this week, Lollipop Chainsaw co-writer James Gunn celebrated the game’s 10th anniversary, but also mentioned that he hasn’t been privy to any talk of any sort of remaster for the game.
Lollipop Chainsaw was released in June 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. If the game does indeed return, hopefully it will also see a PC release.
The game follows a young woman named Juliet Starling as she battles an infestation of zombies while on her way to meet her boyfriend, Nick. In our review of Lollipop Chainsaw, we said, “Lollipop Chainsaw is light-hearted and raunchy, but it doesn’t hit the mark consistently enough to be more than a passing diversion.”
