Lollipop Chainsaw remake delayed but the game got a new name
Developer Dragami Games announces the new title of Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP via Twitter, but says that its release is “delayed to summer 2024 for the best gaming experience.” The game had originally been slated to hit a 2023 release date. It adds, “Apologies to fans waiting for the latest Lollipop Chainsaw installment, thank you for your understanding.”
Dragami Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuade, who was executive producer on the original game, also posts an image of Juliet Starling to Twitter with the message, “We are working hard on game development, but we need a little more time. We will do our best to create a game that you will love, so we ask for your continued support.”
It was revealed in July 2022 following the announcement of the project that James Gunn and Suda51 are not involved in the Lollipop Chainsaw remake. Suda also notes that his development studio Grasshopper Manufacture is uninvolved in the project, which is seemingly being solely handled by Dragami Games.
If nothing else, the release will likely be welcomed by those wanting to play the game on PC. Lollipop Chainsaw’s original release only appeared on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and it hasn’t ever shown up on other platforms since.
Unfortunately, we won’t see the game’s iconic original soundtrack return in full, with Yasuda saying that licensing issues will necessitate at least some replacement songs.
