As if the title wasn’t enough to sell you on this game already, let me take a moment to fill you in on exactly what Lollipop Chainsaw is all about. First off, it stars a zombie slaying cheerleader named Juliet Starling, who has to use her incredible acrobatic skills and an assortment of cheerleading moves to vanquish the zombies that attack her school. It’s also an action/horror game that’s being worked on by Suda 51’s Grasshopper Manufacture, otherwise known as the team behind the mind-blowingly incredible Shadows of the Damned.
Not quite sold? How about the fact that Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka is scoring the soundtrack? Still not sold? Man, you’re a tough sell. If I were a car dealer this is the point that I’d start pulling out the big guns, so I think I’ll do just that. Lollipop Chainsaw has pretty pink gore. That’s right, there’s no need to rub your eyes and re-read that last sentence because you read it right the first time. This game has pink blood. Oh, and it’ll also be coming to both the PS3 and Xbox 360. Now wipe yourself off and head past the break for some screenshots. Suda 51’s work is always unique, and Lollipop Chainsaw is no exception. After giving us games like the raunchy Shadows of the Damned, hilarious No More Heroes, and the unforgettable Killer 7, I think it’s safe to say that his newest project will be unlike anything we’ve ever seen. The game’s also about 70% complete so there’s a chance it’s not too far away.
