Warner to publish Suda51's Lollipop Chainsaw

Grasshopper Manufacture's zombie slayer coming to the west

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has scooped the western publishing rights for Grasshopper Manufacture's Lollipop Chainsaw.


Revealed last month, the Xbox 360 and PS3 game has been described by Suda 51 as "a piece of 'pop' zombie entertainment". It stars a skimpily dressed cheerleader fighting off zombies in a US high school using her trusty chainsaw.

"Actually I've wanted to do a crazy horror-action game like this set in a school for a while now," Suda said. "Something where the classrooms, corridors, gymnasium and so on are suddenly transformed into something completely different."
