The undead outbreak takes on a whole new meaning thanks to Lollipop Chainsaw. Juliet Starling, an 18-year-old dancer as well as the protagonist of the aforementioned game, is the creation of a Japanese programmer as well as American filmmaker James Gunn.
Notwithstanding its devoted fan base, the title can only be played on consoles from the following generation. Meanwhile, the previous developer of Lollipop Chainsaw has announced that the title will be returning. However, it’s not exactly apparent what this return involves.
Dragami Studios Acquired Lollipop Chainsaw
“Dragami Studios has brought back Lollipop Chainsaw. I hope you’re looking forward to it,” ex-CEO of Lollipop Chainsaw producer Kadokawa Studios, Yoshimi Yasuda, wrote. Yasuda’s post proves that Dragami Studios isn’t yet gone, since he now heads the company.
His lack of knowledge regarding the new initiative was disappointing. Even more confusing is the fact that it isn’t obvious if Dragami is developing a new version of Lollipop Chainsaw (or if they’re merely porting it for current-generation systems). Suda and Gunn haven’t remarked on the development of the title and it’s not known whether they will be participating.
A decade ago this month, Gunn and Suda celebrated Lollipop Chainsaw’s tenth birthday. Japanese media such as Famitsu as well as Dengeki PlayStation gave the 2012 title extremely glistening feedback. There was a wide range of opinions from western commentators, on the other hand.
Gamers Loved The Idea and Concept
The innovative idea of Lollipop Chainsaw was widely lauded, but the game’s implementation was widely panned due to problems concerning the controls and camera. As for the game’s comedy, critics were divided on if it worked or not. The Playstation 3, as well as Xbox 360 editions of Lollipop Chainsaw both, received Metacritic ratings of 67 percent and 70 percent, correspondingly, indicating a divided and typically unfavorable response.
That being said, Jim Sterling of Destructoid gave Lollipop Chainsaw a 9/10 and proclaimed it one of the year’s finest titles. Grasshopper Manufacture, the creator of Lollipop Chainsaw, was another huge commercial triumph. Killer7, Killer is Dead, and the No More Heroes franchise are just a few of the titles the firm is recognized for making that have gained cult status among gamers. According to the developer, Lollipop Chainsaw was their best-selling videogame at the time of its release.
Considering how popular the game has been, it’s nearly strange to see the title remain inert for so long. As a result, there is no way to play the PS3 as well as the Xbox 360 version of the title on current-generation systems. It’s awesome information for Lollipop Chainsaw lovers, even though it’s not yet clear how the game could come back.
