The return of Lollipop Chainsaw teased by Dragami Games


Dragami Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda has teased the return of a game many will remember, Suda51’s Lollipop Chainsaw.

Today Dragami Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda teased the return of a game many will remember, Lollipop Chainsaw.

Yasuda-san didn’t provide many details beyond just saying that the game will be returning by Dragami Games, in both English and Japanese.

For now, we’ll have to settle for knowing the game is coming back in some form and wait for a further reveal.

You can find the tweet with the announcement below.

If the name Yoshimi Yasuda means anything to you, he was CEO of Kadokawa Games. Part of Kadokawa Games’ assets and personnel will be taken over by new developer Dragami Games, of which Yasuda-san is the CEO.

Yasuda-san also worked on the original 2012 version of Lollipop Chainsaw, which was published by Kadokawa Games in Japan.

If you’re unfamiliar with Lollypop Chainsaw, it was originally released for PS3 and Xbox 360, developed by Suda’s Goichi “Suda51” Grasshopper Manufactory, and co-directed by Suda-san himself.

Incidentally, the game celebrated its 10th anniversary on June 12, so the timing of the tease is definitely fitting.

It will certainly be interesting to see how Dragami Games intends to bring back Lollipop Chainsaw. Of course, you can expect a full report as soon as the announcement is made.
