Lollipop Chainsaw Will Return, According To Publisher

The cult zombie-killing game Lollipop Chainsaw is apparently making a return, according to the games’ publisher.

Yoshimi Yasuda, the game’s executive producer, recently created a new company to work on future projects. Yasuda tweeted saying “Lollipop Chainsaw is back by Dragami Games. Please look forward to it.”

Whether that means a new game is coming, or whether it’s simply a remaster of the original, remains to be seen. Yasuda did not elaborate much further, so we don’t have much information to go off. But it seems that something Lollipop Chainsaw related is on the horizon, and it could be coming soon.

Lollipop Chainsaw was created by Suda51. He is also known for titles like No More Heroes and Killer is Dead. Suda51’s games were published by Kadokawa Games, the company Yasuda used to be the CEO of.

Will It Be A Sequel Or Not?

The original game was released about a decade ago in 2012. It was released on Xbox 360 and PS3, but it hasn’t seen any kind of re-release or sequel since then. The game didn’t review very highly, and didn’t really make much of an impact at launch.

However, it has remained a cult favourite since then. And it seems that someone thinks the game is worthy of a resurgence, because something is on the way.

The game is currently not playable on any current-gen hardware. It also never received a PC release. It’s possible that this upcoming project could be a simple re-release on these modern platforms, or it could be a fully-fledged sequel.

A new Lollipop Chainsaw game hasn’t been mentioned by its creator though. Suda51, and co-writer James Gunn (known for Guardians of the Galaxy), have not made any mention of the game on social media. However, Suda51 did celebrate the game’s 10th anniversary by posting some pictures on Twitter.

We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this announcement by Yasuda.
