There will be two different modes. The Original Mode uses the effects from the original game. Meanwhile, RePOP mode has less violence and pop-art damage effects. The trailer uses RePOP mode, so you can see what it looks like in action. It starts out with footage that looks like a stereotypical zombie horror before revealing Juliet in her cheerleader outfit and holding her chainsaw. It shows some of the combos she can pull off in battle before shifting the spotlight to the other characters who appear in the story.

Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP is a remaster of the original game, which came out in 2012. Suda51 and James Gunn did not return to work on it. Though it was originally supposed to be a remake, Dragami Games pivoted it to a remaster after fans requested it. The story follows Juliet Starling, who is a cheerleader and zombie hunter. After zombies attack her school and her boyfriend dies protecting her, she revives him and turns him into a head that she wears around her belt. She then goes on to kill all of the zombies in the school and take down the culprits behind the outbreak.

The Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP release date is now September 25, 2024 for the PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam.
