Details and platforms haven’t been announced yet, but given that the pedigree is working in the original release, it’s surprising if the switch doesn’t show this. The creative director of the game was none other than Goichi Suda, famous for No More Heroes. Lollipop Chainsaw is also the first and only game ever written by Guardians of the Galaxy film director James Gunn. It’s not clear if the Grasshopper Manufacture is back in the development of a remake, but we’re still confident!
Here’s a statement from producer Yasuda on Twitter, who confirms that the remake will need some changes when it’s finally released next year.
One of the few things developers need to change is the soundtrack. The original consists of 15 licensed songs, and Mr. Yasuda states that, as mentioned above, it is necessary to create new music. Yasuda also wants to take advantage of better hardware, and aims to “approach more realistic graphics this time.”
This over-the-top hack and slash game goes beyond a whole new level and starring an 18-year-old high school cheerleader called Juliet Sterling, who flips, kicks, and beats zombies with her trusted chainsaw. Oh, and her boyfriend is a decapitated head on her waist. There is a reason for that, we promise. Lollipop Chainsaw never struck a chord with critics in 2012, but the game has gained enthusiastic support for years.
