  • Review Lollipop Chainsaw (PlayStation 3)

    Goddammit, video games

    It's generally a bad idea to judge anything by its title or cover, but one look at either pretty much spells out what to expect from Grasshopper Manufacture's latest fever dream, Lollipop Chainsaw: comic books, pop music, rainbows, titillating exploitation and lots and lots of violence. These are all the makings for perfect...

  • News Lollipop Chainsaw Remake Will Remain True to the Original, Producer Assures Fans

    The San Romero Knight returns

    Lollipop Chainsaw is an iconic PS3 title, and a remake of the crazy and colourful hack-and-slash game is currently in the works, slated for 2023.

  • News Suda51's Cult Hit Action Game Lollipop Chainsaw Is Coming Back, Apparently

    Yoshimi Yasuda says so

    Here's a game we haven't thought about in a long time. Lollipop Chainsaw, developed by Suda51's studio Grasshopper Manufacture, was a PS3 action title starring a zombie-slaying cheerleader. It did reasonably well at the time, and has gone down as a bit of a cult hit. Fast forward 10 years, and one key person says it's making a...

    Record breaker

    Grasshopper Manufacture is no stranger to commercial failure, but it looks like the studio has finally secured a timely hit. The Japanese developer has declared that it has shipped over 700,000 copies of Lollipop Chainsaw worldwide, making it the most successful title in the company’s history. Studio gaffer Suda 51 and Japanese...

  • News Watch This Bonkers Lollipop Chainsaw Launch Trailer

    Super sweet

    At one point in this Lollipop Chainsaw launch trailer, protagonist Juliet Starling cuts a UFO in half. That’s pretty weird – but we should probably point out that the alien space shuttle is being piloted by an undead funkster who laments his mortality through an autotune module. Brilliant. Fix your eyeballs on the video below for a...

  • News Move Support in Lollipop Chainsaw Still Possible

    Waggle master

    The PlayStation Move kind of looks like a massive lollipop, so it would make sense for the motion controller to be utilised in Grasshopper’s upcoming undead slasher Lollipop Chainsaw. Still, while you won’t be physically hacking your way through the game at launch, gaffer Suda51 hasn’t dismissed the possibility. Chatting with...

  • News Dive into the Twisted Mind of Lollipop Chainsaw's Suda 51

    Mad men

    It takes a certain kind of genius to create a game as crazy as Lollipop Chainsaw, and this behind the scenes video does its best to expose that. In the trailer, Suda 51 talks a little about the game’s inspirations and his desire to create a different kind of zombie game. Writer James Gunn is also on-hand to explain some of the title’s...

  • News Meet Lollipop Chainsaw's Starling Sisters


    Warner Bros has released a brand new trailer introducing Juliet Starling’s zombie-slaying siblings in Lollipop Chainsaw. We'll be honest, if the footage has taught us anything, it’s that girls prefer guys when they’re just a head. Bear with us while we go and find the rickety old saw in our tools shed – we have a few, er,...

  • Interview Goichi Suda - Grasshopper Manufacture

    Suda51 talks Lollipop Chainsaw, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and what "punk" means to his studio

    There's crazy, and then there's Japanese studio Grasshopper Manufacture's particular brand of bonkers, which positively oozes from its upcoming title Lollipop Chainsaw. As the developer braces itself for the June release of its over-the-top teenage bubblegum...

  • News Work Up a Sweat with New Lollipop Chainsaw Footage

    Give me an "L"

    This might not be the greatest video in the world (it’s completely missing music for starters) but it at least provides a good indication of the type of combat variety you can expect when Grasshopper’s zany zombie brawler Lollipop Chainsaw launches on PS3 later this year. Swiftly smash the “Play” button below and you’ll be...

  • News Sample Some of the Sounds from Lollipop Chainsaw

    Bloody good

    Could Lollipop Chainsaw possibly be any cooler? Not only is it borne out of the twisted mind of Killer 7’s Suda 51, but it also has Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) and the dude from Mindless Self Indulgence providing the soundtrack. In this brand new behind the scenes trailer you can watch the two composers talk about their inspirations...

About The Game

Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly’ story of sweet and killer zombie-hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak.

With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw-wielding cheerleader. Lollipop Chainsaw is being developed by GRASSHOPPER MANUFACTURE, led by celebrated game developer Goichi Suda (aka SUDA 51) and featuring the musical compositions of the renowned Akira Yamaoka. In addition, Hollywood director and writer James Gunn (Super, Slither, Dawn of the Dead, Tromeo and Juliet) has brought his cult humor and edgy storytelling to Lollipop Chainsaw’s script.


Killer Heroine – Juliet Starling is an 18-year-old student with a dark secret– zombie-hunting with a killer chainsaw in hand. Juliet must balance the drama of high school while carrying out her zombie-hunting lineage.

Gameplay Design – Celebrated game developer SUDA 51 brings his unique creative style and vision to the gameplay design, taking players through a wild ride of zombies, chainsaws, and rainbows.

Edgy Storyline – Through an adapted script by James Gunn, Juliet must uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak at her school, San Romero High, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to take her down.

Combat/Weapons – Players will hone their cheerleading acrobatics and chainsaw skills to string together devastating combo moves, taking out hordes of the undead.

Zombie Rock Lords – San Romero High’s zombie jocks and undead faculty are the least of Juliet’s concerns when she soon realizes that she faces a bigger challenge, zombie rock lords that add a new ‘beat’ to SUDA 51’s over-the-top boss battles.

Head Bangin’ Music – With original music created by popular video game composer Akira Yamaoka (best known for the Silent Hill series) and collaboration with a yet-to-be announced artist, Lollipop Chainsaw features a soundtrack that’s to die for! In addition to original music, Juliet’s playlist will also include familiar songs from various musical genres.
