Remake of Lollipop Chainsaw Announced

Lollipop Chainsaw, a hack-and-slash zombie game, generally received favourable reviews after its initial 2012 release.

Lollipop Chainsaw received mixed reviews from certain reviewers, but it didn’t stop the slick action movie from developing a cult following.

The video game, which follows cheerleader Juliet Starling as she encounters a zombie epidemic at her high school, received plaudits for its charm, hilarity, and uniqueness.

Lollipop Chainsaw has had a considerable effect in the mainstream media in addition to its cult fanbase.

According to director James Gunn, the breakthrough sequence for Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad was inspired by his collaboration with Suda51 on Lollipop Chainsaw.

Since Lollipop Chainsaw approaches its tenth anniversary, it seems that fans may finally get some fresh material for the cult favourite, as a remake of the game has just been revealed.

When it was hinted that Lollipop Chainsaw might be making a reappearance last month, fans instantly started formulating predictions about what may happen next. Lollipop Chainsaw is “back,” according to a new developer named Dragami Games, the former CEO of Kadokawa Games, the business that released the game in Japan. It has now been revealed that Dragami Games’ project is a remake of Lollipop Chainsaw to commemorate its tenth anniversary. It is evident from the developer’s photos that the Lollipop Chainsaw remake will feature modernized visual components, but it doesn’t seem like the game’s graphics will undergo a significant revamp.

Little is known about the changes made from the 2012 original Lollipop Chainsaw.

A modification in the game’s original title’s soundtrack has been revealed as one more significant upgrade than the graphical changes.

The soundtrack for 2012’s Lollipop Chainsaw will be replaced with new songs, similar to how Sonic Origins altered the soundtrack for Sonic 3.

Contrary to Sonic, though, Lollipop Chainsaw’s adjustments were necessitated by the initial game’s abundance of licensed music, which Dragami Games could not get again.

The remake of Lollipop Chainsaw is scheduled for release sometime in 2023, although an exact date has not yet been announced.

The availability of Lollipop Chainsaw on specific systems is also unknown at this time.

However, fans can probably anticipate it on new hardware with a chance of debuting on PS4 and Xbox One.

In any event, the remake offers both an opportunity for longtime fans to catch up on Lollipop Chainsaw’s highlights and an introduction to the stunning game for brand-new players.
