Lollipop Chainsaw: I know next to nothing about it, but I want it anyway

Here's what I know about Lollipop Chainsaw at the moment: It's being made by the folks at Grasshopper Manufacture (Contact, Killer7, No More Heroes). It'll be published (in Japan) by Kadokawa Games. It'll be released for PS3 and Xbox 360. Oh, and it will star a chainsaw-wielding cheerleader and a whole lot of zombies.



A bunch of Lollipop Chainsaw screenshots hit the Internet this morning, with the one above being my favorite thanks to the fact that it shows the game's heroine, Juliet, carving up zombies with heart-shaped strokes of her hot-pink chainsaw. (I also like that it shows what appears to be a decapitated head dangling from her waistband.)

Oh. My. WANT! How sweet! It looks like Travis has the perfect girlfriend. Now all they have to do is meet in a game somewhere...

Oh, I guess this is where our paths diverge... I'm not a big fan of Suda 51 and their sense of humor. ;) Cool screens, though!

I wouldn't put that past the folks at Grasshopper, Justin. (Putting Travis in this game, I mean.) I guess we'll find out soon enough!

Anne: That's OK! I can't say I'm the hugest fan of Suda 51 -- I liked what I've played of No More Heroes, but that's all I've really experienced of his/their games.

That said, any game featuring chainsaws and zombies is going to catch my attention -- at least until the game comes out and it proven to be a stinker :)

There are times when a combination of factors makes a game seem like a must-play. I think this is one of those times, at least for me! I've never played any Suda 51 games, but there's a first time for everything. I feel like there's no way I wouldn't have fun with this, if the screenshots are any indication.

Hey there, Kamiwoo! Honestly, I could see it not being fun -- see the Onechanbara games, which look similar -- but I'm hoping that won't be the case. I mean, who wouldn't want to kill zombies with a hot-pink chainsaw?

Oh man this game looks awesome when is it getting a western release?

Hot pink chainsaw FTW!

Hello, gamefreak! I would guess it will be brought to Europe and NA, but I don't think anything has been announced yet. Hopefully soon.

And, YES, hot-pink chainsaw FTW!!!
