Key Features of Lollipop Chainsaw

Here is a list of key features that will be available in Grasshopper Manufacture’s Lollipop Chainsaw based on news and announcements made so far.

  • Though Lollipop Chainsaw’s genre has not been officially announced, from the trailers we can assume it is of the hack n slash variety, similar to No More Heroes – not a surprise really considering you play a chainsaw wielding zombie-slayer.
  • Juliet’s main weapon will be a chainsaw, but her cheerleading skills will also be at the player’s disposal. After completing certain tasks, Juliet’s weapons will be upgradeable
  • Suda has also hinted that part of the gameplay will involve sound, there’s no word yet on what that means exactly, but it should be interesting to find out!
