Lollipop Chainsaw is back, in pog form. Not really. But it is, apparently, coming back, according to publisher Dragami Games, and we should all look forward to it.
Yoshimi Yasuda, previously the CEO of Kadokawa Games (erstwhile publisher of Lollipop Chainsaw), has established a new publisher, called Dragami Games.
It could well be that a remaster is on the way, bringing the game up to date in terms of resolution and—who knows?—maybe some sort of new content.
The original game is something of a cult classic now. It came out in 2012, on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it isn’t backwards compatible on Xbox. Nor is on PlayStation Now—soon to be PlayStation Plus. In VideoGamer’s review of the game, we said:
“It’s typically scattershot Suda fare, in other words. Some brilliant ideas rub shoulders with some pretty terrible ones, but it’s almost unfair to criticise a game for trying too hard at a time when so many publishers are determined to play their safest possible hand. For every parody that doesn’t quite come off there’s a terrific bit of throwaway dialogue; for every moment of wonky animation or asset recycling a delightful presentational flourish (the menus are some of the best you’ll see all year).”
