Lollipop Chainsaw remake will be released globally next year and will be published by Japanese company Dragami Games, led by the game’s original producer, Yoshimi Yasuda. However, the release platforms and the official title of the game have not yet been revealed. The game is being developed by a combination of employees who worked on the original and new employees under the Dragami Games banner.

The new game will take the original as its canvas, but it will also feature some key differences, made possible by the power of the new consoles. Among other things, the remake wants to have a more realistic approach in its graphics. Also, due to copyright issues, the music will be mostly new, only a few songs may be brought back from the original.

A preview released for Lollipop Chainsaw’s 10th anniversary last month hinted that a remake or sequel was in development. The action game released in 2012 has become a real cult game for fans. It features Juliet Starling, a cheerleader who must defend herself against a zombie apocalypse. Armed with her chainsaw, she attempts to uncover the truth behind the zombie outbreak at her school. Plus, the apocalypse totally overshadowed Juliet’s birthday, what a pity!

We, the original Lollipop Chainsaw development team, think the game is very valuable, and we didn’t want to leave it in limbo where players who want to play it can’t. As such, we purchased the Lollipop Chainsaw IP from Kadokawa Games, and decided to develop a remake. We have already contacted Warner Bros about the development, and we are supported by them in this endeavour.
