In a mass interview with Famitsu for 2023, Yoshimi Yasuda of Dragami Games stated that the remake of Lollipop Chainsaw will come out next year. It is currently still in development. He also said that he has collected requests and feedback from players in Japan and overseas, and has shared it with the staff. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

Yasuda says that the team is working on the game with a concrete idea of what kind of work and theme the game will have. This statement implies that, despite the game being a remake of Lollipop Chainsaw, it will have differences from the original. Dragami Games is also still thinking about what game to work on after it finishes Lollipop Chainsaw. It could be a title that it wants to make with new staff members, or a sequel of a popular series. Series that Dragami Games owns from Kadokawa Games include Demon Gaze, God Wars, and √Letter.

When Dragami Games first announced a “revival project” for Lollipop Chainsaw, there were not a lot of details. However, it seems so far that this remake is the only thing Dragami Games has planned for now. Yasuda did not mention anything else related to the game in his interview with Famitsu.

Lollipop Chainsaw originally came out in 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. At the time, Grasshopper Manufacture developed it and Kadokawa Games published it in Japan. It is a hack-and-slash game in which you play as Juliet Starling, a cheerleader who wields a chainsaw to fight zombies. She can also use her boyfriend’s decapitated head to help her fight.

The Lollipop Chainsaw remake is in development and will come out in 2023. There is no information on what consoles it will be on.
