Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will be publishing the game outside of all Asian territories
Lollipop Chainsaw is an all-new third person action game being developed by GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE, led by celebrated gamemaker 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.
"Our exciting partnership with KADOKAWA GAMES allows us to try something new by bringing a very unique game like Lollipop Chainsaw to Western markets," said Martin Tremblay, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE's games have shown tremendous success with gamers around the globe and we are delighted to expand our portfolio of Japanese-developed games."
"We are looking forward to partnering with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on our first entry into the HD console market," said Yoshimi Yasuda, President of KADOWAKA GAMES. "We are also thrilled to have a team like GRASSHOPPER and talent like Suda51 creating such an interesting and distinct game for us to work with and bring to the fans."
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.

13 new legendary skins is basically unheard of in a patch.. I think including holiday events. (6 Hours ago)

the door for devs to allow them to do what they want without worrying about that. Everything else will automatically get better, but thats the key overall. (7 Hours ago)
Trico is massive. I felt like he was going to knock me over the edge a few times as he walked past. Great stuff. Shame about the teleportation, but fixing the motion sickness issue should open up (7 Hours ago)
Imagine God of War 3 for a VR port. It'd be immense. The Last Guardian VR demo too was superb, but frustrating because it wasn't the full game, but showed it can work. (7 Hours ago)
