If you're familiar at all with the work of Grasshopper Manufacture and its president Goichi "Suda51" Suda, it should come as no surprise to you that their latest game involves a cheerleader in a skimpy outfit using a chainsaw to dismember zombies inside a West Coast high school. It also shouldn't surprise you to learn that Grasshopper already has a US and European publisher in place for the title.
Lollipop Chainsaw (ロリポップチェーンソー), an Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 title first announced in this week's issue of Famitsu magazine in Japan, stars a girl named Juliet Starling who, on the occasion of her 18th birthday, is on her way to San Romero High School to meet up with her boyfriend. Instead, she finds the place infested with zombie-fied versions of her classmates. It should be obvious by the game's title what comes next.
No release date was given for Lollipop Chainsaw (2012), which (according to Yasuda) already has an overseas publisher committed to releasing the game in English, although he didn't reveal who. "The game's framework is complete, and now we're deep into the fine-tuning process," Suda said. "I'd place it at around 70 percent complete. It's really a new era for zombie games -- a piece of 'pop' zombie entertainment." Here are some screens.
I really can't wait for this game, because I love Zombie Games and Girls! ;b
This year, im gonna rock Dead Island and next Year it's gonna be Lollipop Chainsaw. . . damn this reminds of the Manga/Anime Highschool of the Dead. . . only with just one girl.
