A confusing Twitter post by Dragami Games president Yoshimi Yasuda has revealed that Lollipop Chainsaw RePOP, the PS5 re-release of the twee PS3 cult classic, will now be a remaster as opposed to a remake. “We have changed the game design based on your requests,” the executive bafflingly declared.
Exactly what this means for the project is honestly unclear, but we’re assuming the experience will be closer to the original than perhaps initially intended. Obviously, a remake implies a complete rebuild of an existing game – whereas remasters tend to use the existing code and overhaul the assets. Without additional context, though, it’s hard to understand what Yasuda means here.
Either way, the game’s due out in 2024 having been delayed a few months ago. Presumably the developer will reveal more about the project in the lead up to launch, and that should give us a better idea of what to expect here.
