Button Mashing encouraged High School Girl protagonist with teenage sarcastic comedy slashing zombies ..... I CANNOT WAIT!
Former Kadokawa Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda announced that his new company Dragami Games will handle the revival of the cult hack-and-slash action game Lollipop Chainsaw.
Yasuda, who spent the previous 14 years at Kadokawa Games working on titles such as Root Letter and God Wars: Future Past, left the company to form Dragami Games as part of a corporate split. Dragami Games announced shortly after its inception that it would continue to develop titles that Kadokawa Games is known for, such as action, strategy, and simulation games.
The shocking news was tweeted by Yasuda in both English and Japanese:
“Lollipop Chainsaw will be revived by Dragami Games. Please look forward to it!”
Lollipop Chainsaw was created by Grasshopper Manufacture in collaboration with Goichi "Suda51" Suda and filmmaker James Gunn, and it starred cheerleader Juliet Starling, who had to slay zombies to save her school.
While its over-the-top story and sexy action received mostly positive reviews in Japan, its gameplay was panned in the West.
Dragami Games has not stated whether this "revival" refers to a new game, a remake, or a remaster, but many fans will undoubtedly welcome any kind of return from the 2012 PS3 and Xbox 360 action game, which was never re-released on any other platform.
