Particulars of the upcoming remake from the unique announcement by way of producer Yoshimi Yasuda:
14 years have handed since I began the Lollipop Chainsaw undertaking.
Lollipop Chainsaw was born because of Suda 51 discussing creating a brand new sport with me. I noticed nice potential in Grasshopper Manufacture‘s proposal, and only one month after Kadokawa Video games was based April 2009, we began the event undertaking on Lollipop Chainsaw, in Might 2009.
As Suda-san was very busy dealing with growth on different initiatives on the time, I served as director and producer, making a joint growth workforce consisting of employees from Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Video games, overseeing growth immediately. Suda-san regarded over the sport design and supervised the undertaking as an govt producer.
In January 2010, the help of a pal of mine working at Warner Bros. led to us efficiently greedy an opportunity with the Warner Bros. greenlight committee, and Warner Bros. thus turning into the writer for the sport in all areas exterior of Asia. Moreover, a Warner Bros. senior supervisor advised that we’ve got the sport’s script rewritten, and that we depart it to movie director James Gunn, which we gladly agreed to.
All of this luck resulted in Lollipop Chainsaw, which launched in June 2012, being liked by many gamers all around the world, promoting over one million models worldwide.
Sadly, varied components resulted in issues making it in order that followers can now not simply play Lollipop Chainsaw, and it has been a while since gamers haven’t been in a position to entry the sport on present consoles.
We, the unique growth employees on Lollipop Chainsaw, consider the sport as very valuable to us, and didn’t need to depart it in limbo, the place gamers who need to play it can’t. As such, we bought the Lollipop Chainsaw mental property from Kadokawa Video games, and determined to develop a remake. We’ve got already contacted Warner Bros. about growth, and are being supported by them on this endeavor.
One factor that we’ve got to inform followers of the unique sport is that regardless that the unique employees are engaged on the remake, there might be parts which might be totally different from the unique. For example, the unique sport had 15 licensed songs used within the soundtrack, however it’s sadly troublesome for us to implement all of them this time. Consequently, other than a number of licensed tracks, the soundtrack will consist of recent music. Moreover, since we’ve got entry to consoles with larger specs, we might be taking a extra real looking method to the graphics this time.
In any case, our aim is to make it simpler for avid gamers who need to play Lollipop Chainsaw to take action. Please stay up for the sport’s 2023 launch.
