There is a trailer out for a video game so enticing that I had to change my pants after I saw it. I am talking about Lollipop Chainsaw; a hack-and-slash zombie killing… no… dismembering game.
In the game, you play Juliet, a cheerleader who’s outfit leaves little to the imagination. In the trailer, she appears to be in her school slashing zombies left and right.
James Gunn (writer/director: “Slither”, “Super”) wrote the story behind the game. Suda 51 (Video game director: “Fatal Frame IV”, “Shadow of the Damned”) is the creative director. When looking at these guys’ reputations, it is clear that Lollipop Chainsaw will be a crazy, yet fantastic journey. As a former cheerleader, cheer coach, and current zombie lover, this looks like it was made for me.
The release date is set for the end of 2012, but there hasn’t been a definite date scheduled. One thing is for sure… I will be reserving this one. Here is the trailer:
