Lollipop Chainsaw Will Be Brought Out Of Japan By… Warner Bros. [Update]

Recommended Videos

Grasshopper Manufacture’s next game, Lollipop Chainsaw, was only just announced in Japan about ten days ago, but it’s already being officially confirmed for an overseas release. Warner Bros. will be publishing the zombie game outside Japan.

 

Lollipop Chainsaw is about an 18-year-old cheerleader, Juliet Sterling, who attends San Romero High. Juliet is from a line of zombie hunters, and zombies happen to show up at her school on her 18th birthday. Juliet takes them on with her pink chainsaw.

 

The game’s website is up now, too, and appears to confirm both an American and European release. It describes Lollipop Chainsaw as a game “bursting with sex, blood and rock ‘n’ roll” that has you uncovering a plot contrived by zombie rock lords to kill Juliet.

 

Update: Warner Bros. say they plan to release Lollipop Chainsaw in all non-Asian territories in 2012. They’ve brought on Hollywood director-cum-writer, James Gunn (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead, Tromeo and Juliet), to work on the game in some capacity.
