Read details on the game below:

Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP is a remake of the original Lollipop Chainsaw (2012), on which Yoshimi Yasuda lead development as producer. RePOP is a definitive version of the game which leaves the story unchanged, with the focus on quality-of-life improvements and additional gameplay content.

Watch Juliet, a descendant of zombie hunters, as she fights alongside her boyfriend and family to stop a zombie apocalypse starting in her high school in Juliet’s 18th Birthday.

When pre-orders will be available is to be announced at a later date.

Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP will also have a physical edition released worldwide. Further details are to be announced at a later date.

Quality of Life Improvements

  • The resolution of the game has been increased to full HD, and load times have been greatly shortened.
  • The chainsaw action has been sped up with the introduction of the Chained Hits Hunting system, in which chaining multiple hits in succession increases the player’s attack speed.
  • The input timings for Combo Actions have been adjusted, to better fit players’ expectations.
  • Chainsaw Blaster action has been improved with the addition of auto-lock and auto-fire modes that can be toggled, and an increased maximum ammo count of 99.
  • The player can now immediately use Combo Actions at the start of the game.

Additional Gameplay Content

  • Separate from Original Mode, RePOP adds RePOP mode, which uses a unique and colorful pop art-inspired art style for damage effects.
  • Unique new chainsaws with distinctly different features have been added.
  • There are 30 costumes, more than the original game’s costume count. Combined with the addition of 4 new hair colors and 4 new chainsaws, this adds up to 750 different possible combinations.
  • Juliet’s Room has been expanded with more features.
  • A Time Attack mode with ranking feature has been added.

They must be confident in good sales if they are skipping PS4 version

Pratically the only game that gets my interest this year, unless sony decides once again to spit on the players' face with their insulting and racist censorship policy everytime they see a skirt.

Lol my 360 copy is still sealed. Just not gotten around to it yet but bought it 2 years ago. Yeah should just open it and try it. I heard they removed all the licensed music. Not sure if that's a big deal but people are making it sound like it is.

It would be for me. I accidentally bought the version of RE1 for PS1 last year (I use to own it, but sold it years ago) that had the original score removed and swapped for an updated one. You should have seen the strange looks on my face as I worked my way through the game. I was like, that doesn't sound right... at all. lol
