“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,” the press release reveals. “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.”

Improvements include enhanced visuals and loading times, as well as improved gameplay. Some of the mechanics that have been optimised include the timing of combos and the overall pace of attacks. The release will also add 30 costumes, a time attack mode, and RePOP visual filter, which “uses a unique and colourful pop art-inspired art style for damage effects”.
