Guess who is bringing Suda 51’s latest insanity to the west? Why yes, it is Warner Bros. I see you can read headlines.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, known lately for bringing Mortal Kombat back to form, is going to give us another taste of the old ultra violence. And that taste is lollipop flavored. Well, actually, lollipop itself has no flavor, as it is a form of food that carries other flavors on it. Anyways, Lollipop Chainsaw!
From the mind of Suda 51, the man who bent your sanity over a chair and made it cry like a little girl as it did terrible, terrible things to it with games like Killer 7, No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned, Lollipop Chainsaw is about teenager Juliet Starling, a cheerleader who must fight zombies with a combination of a chainsaw and cheerleader maneuvers. She also has a talking skull keychain that gives you hints like a bastardized version of Navi from The Legend of Zelda. Because, you know. Suda 51. A talking skull keychain actually seems normal compared to some of the stuff he’s thrown our ways over the year.
But wait! That’s not all! You don’t just get Suda 51 with this game! As if that isn’t good enough…and it is…you also get Akira Yamaoka creating the music for this game. That’s right, Akira “Silent Hill” Yamaoka. You’re damn straight that’s a fantastic combination. It’s been proven already via Shadows of the Damned. Is that not enough? No, it is not enough. We also have James Gunn, whom you know as the guy who directed Super and Slither, helping out with the story. So, the guy who made No More Heroes, plus the guy who crafted the sound track to Silent Hill, plus the guy who made a movie about killer leeches, and what do you have?
Well, we don’t know. Its coming out in 2012 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. But I’m guessing it’s gonna be something awesome and very, very confusing.
