Lollipop Chainsaw may be getting its long-awaited sequel soon, according to executive producer Yoshimi Yasuda, who confirmed in a tweet yesterday that the cult-classic hack-and-slash action franchise is being revived courtesy of his current employer, Dragami Games. “Lollipop Chainsaw is back by Dragami Games,” Yasuda said, telling fans to “look forward” to what could very well be another installment in the series that was spearheaded by Grasshopper Manufacture in 2012, or, perhaps, a PC port of the original. A collaboration between game designer Suda51 (Killer7, No More Heroes) and director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lollipop Chainsaw centers on a high school cheerleader named Juliet who must fight through an army of zombies using a giant chainsaw. It was developed on Unreal Engine 3 and released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 a decade ago.

Dragami Games is a video game publishing company founded on May 13, 2022. It was formed after Yasuda and fellow Kadokawa Games company director Satoshi Fuyuno split from the company. Though relatively new, Dragami Games employs around 20 former Kadokawa Games employees. More importantly, the company also holds the IPs of games such as Lollipop Chainsaw, the Demon Gaze series, Relayer, and √Letter, among others.
