You have to admit the title definitely warrants a peek. Here’s what we’ve heard so far:
Lollipop Chainsaw is an all-new third person action game being developed by GASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE, led by Goichi Suda (aka Suda51) and featuring the musical compositions of the renowned Akira Yamoaka. In addition to these two talented individuals, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has tapped Hollywood director/writer, James Gunn (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead, Tromeo and Juliet) to bring his cult humour and edgy storytelling to Lollipop Chainsaw.
Sounds impressive. The story goes like this:
Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet and killer zombie hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak. With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw wielding cheerleader.
Sweet. Lollipop is scheduled to release sometime in 2012 for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. We will definitely keep you posted on this one.
