Lollipop Chainsaw

Lollipop Chainsaw

Release Date: June 12, 2012

Systems: PS3, Xbox360

I first saw this on Amazon about a month ago, when I was looking at some other games to add to my wishlist (Catherine… Shutup.) This was suggested to me. I don’t know why, but I found the cover so corny it intrigued me. And hey, I just found out James Gunn is a part of this project, and Tara Strong! I don’t know when I am going to get this game, but I do know I will get it some time in the future. It looks hilarious. Zombie slaying cheerleader, with a chainsaw. Why not?

LollipopChainsawPS3Amazon.com Product Description

Lollipop Chainsaw is a Hack and Slash, single player Action game in which players battle zombies as never before – in the form of the spirited and sexy, chainsaw-wielding cheerleader heroine, Juliet Starling. The game contains an addictive mixture of mature zombie apocalypse gameplay, juxtaposed with the bubbly actions and attitude of the perky teen heroine. Additional features include, upgradable cheerleading abilities and chain saws that both serve in combat, over-the-top zombie rock lord bosses, a storyline full of hooks, and a rockin’ soundtrack.

Manufacturer’s Description

Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet and killer zombie-hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak. With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw-wielding cheerleader.

Lollipop Chainsaw is being developed by Grasshoper Manufacture, led by celebrated game developer Goichi Suda (aka SUDA 51) and featuring the musical compositions of the renowned Akira Yamaoka. In addition, Hollywood director and writer James Gunn (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead, Tromeo and Juliet) has brought his cult humor and edgy storytelling to Lollipop Chainsaw‘s script.
