Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP Is Set For A 2024 Release
Dragami Games’ upcoming remake of Grasshopper Manufacture’s action-adventure hack-and-slash game, Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP, is set for a 2024 release.
Yoshimi Yasuda, Game Designer at Dragami Games, took to social media to reveal that Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP will have a release date sometime in the year 2024. He didn’t provide further details on a release window, however.
Yasuda thanked the game’s fans for all the messages they sent him this year. He shared that Lollipop Chainsaw will finally launch in 2024, and asked fans to look forward to it. Also, he mentioned that him and his team will start a campaign to present a Juliet figure on New Year’s Day, and he asked fans to join them on the occasion.
Previously, Yasuda had mentioned that the combat system in Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP will be improved to be more enjoyable for fans of modern action games. According to him, the remaster/remake will feature speed adjustments in order to eliminate the sluggish feel of chainsaw battles and will also include improvements to input response timing for cheerleading and chainsaw combo attacks as well as improvements to camera movement. These refinements are likely aimed at bringing the game more in line with modern hack-and-slash games, such as Devil May Cry 5 and Bayonetta 3.
The original Lollipop Chainsaw is a 2012 hack and slash game developed by Grasshopper Manufacture for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 video game consoles.It focuses on Juliet Starling, a cheerleader who hunts zombies in a fictional California high school (voiced by Tara Strong in English, Eri Kitamura in the PlayStation 3 version, and Yoko Hikasa in the Xbox version in Japanese). The game was a collaboration between director James Gunn and game designer Suda51. It was originally published and released in 2012 by Kadokawa in Japan and by Warner Bros. in all other regions.
Players take on the role of Juliet as she battles through hordes of zombies. With her chainsaw, she can perform high and low attacks, dodges, and melee attacks. Zombies can be attacked until they become groggy, at which point a chainsaw attack will instantly kill them. By eliminating zombies, destroying objects, and saving classmates, players can earn gold medals.
