Producer and head of Dragami Games Yoshimi Yasuda has announced that the PS3 and Xbox 360 will become cult classics. Chainsaw Lollipop is getting a remake in 2023, IGN reports!

No details or platforms have been announced yet, but given the pedigree working on the original release, we’d be surprised if we didn’t see it on Switch. The game’s creative director was none other than Suda51 of No More Heroes fame. Lollipop Chainsaw is also the first and only game for which Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn wrote the screenplay. While it’s unclear if Grasshopper Manufacture will be back to develop a remake, we’re still sure!

Here is a statement from producer Yasuda on Twitter confirming that the remake will need to make a few changes when it releases next year:

One of the few things the developers will need to change is the soundtrack. The original consists of 15 licensed songs, and Yasuda stated above that more new music would need to be created. Yasuda also wants to make the most of better hardware and will “take a more realistic approach to graphics” this time around.

This incredible hack-and-slash game takes excess to a whole new level, starring an 18-year-old high school girl named Juliet Starling who beats up zombies with rolls, kicks and her trusty chainsaw. Oh, and her boyfriend is a severed head attached to her waist. There is a reason for this, we promise. Lollipop Chainsaw didn’t resonate with critics back in 2012, but over the years the game has gained a cult following.

If you have never played Lollipop Chainsaw before and no idea what awaits you, here is the trailer for you – with a lot of blood, gore and guts, so look at your own discretion!
