Back in February, Siliconera reported Grasshopper Manufacture was developing Lollipop Chainsaw. Now we have more details about the game, thanks to early leaks from Famitsu.
You play as Juliet, a student at San Romero High (said to be set on the West Coast, I suppose California?), who is a descendent of a long line of zombie hunters. Zombies invaded her high school and you have to take them out with your chainsaw. Juliet is said to be an acrobatic heroine and will use cheerleading moves in the game.
When you kill a zombie the game splashes pink-colored blood on the screen. That’s because the game is supposed to have a pop feel to it. Kadokawa Games will publish Lollipop Chainsaw in Japan. The game is in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
