Remake officially announced! Suda 51 and James Gunn’s game will return in 2023

Lollipop Chainsaw is about to return! The crazy zombie-game born from the minds of Yoshimi Yasuda, James Gunn and Suda 51 will in fact return in the form of Remake in 2023. The remake of the famous cult of Suda 51, which has been able to build its own fanbase over time, will be curated by original creators of the game.

A return of Lollipop Chainsaw had been discussed for some time. In December, it looked like a Remastered was in the works, but for months there was absolute silence. On June 15, however, Yoshimi Yasuda confirmed that a new game was in development but his identity was not known. Now, however, confirmation has come that the new title will be a Remake of the cult by Suda51.

The publisher, Dragami Games, took care of the announcement of the title, confirming its release for next year. The development team will be a combination of the old staff, including Yoshimi Yasuda himself, and the new staff belonging to Dragami Games. The goal is clearly to recreate the original atmosphere of the first chapter but with, of course, some differences.


Yasuda focused on two particular elements. The first concerns the graphics: thanks to the power of the next-gen, in fact, the team will aim for a more realistic graphic style. News that some might like, but which is accompanied by a big negative side that will surely make fans turn up their noses: the soundtrack.

In fact, few traces of the original game will remainand the soundtrack will be composed mostly from new songs. The reason that prompted Yasuda to make this remake lies both in the desire to offer players a better and refined version of Lollipop Chainsaw, and to allow those who do not have an old-gen console to be able to play the title. In fact, we recall that Lollipop Chainsaw was released only on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

“We, the original staff of Lollipop Chainsaw, are very fond of this game and don’t want to leave it in a limbo where players who would like to play it simply can’t. For this reason, we acquired the intellectual property of the game from Kadokawa Games and decided to develop a remake. We have already contacted Warner Bros. about this remake and will receive their support “says Yasuda.

Lollipop Chainsaw came out in 2012 and got some so-and-so from critics. The game, born from the minds of Suda51, by director James Gunn (movie director from Guardians of the Galaxy and Suicide Squad: Suicide Mission) e by Yoshimi Yasuda, however, has been able to conquer the players over time, becoming a small cult. Will this Remake be able to get a better appreciation even from the press?
