Lollipop Chainsaw has recently announced getting a remake. However this remake will lose out on a couple of key members which worked on the original title that launched back in 2013.
Dragami Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda had stated that the remake would be developed by the “original staff”, but it appears certain key members will not be a part of that team.
Two major ones being James Gunn, one of the writers for the game, and SUDA51, who was the creative director on the original project.
Due to fan speculation on their roles in creating the remake, James Gunn took to Twitter to reveal his lack of a role for the development:
“To answer the question in the article, neither I nor Suda51 are currently involved in this,” Gunn said. “I heard about it for the first time from Suda a couple weeks ago.”
He also states that his tweet is not meant to be taken as an endorsement or condemnation of the remake. SUDA51 also responded to his tweet to mention he will not be working on the remake either:
“To add my two cents, like James Gunn says, neither he nor I am involved in this project at all, and Grasshopper Manufacture has nothing to do with the development or anything,” Suda said.
Lollipop Chainsaw Remake is expected to launch some time in 2023. Release platforms for the game are still unknown as of this writing. Lollipop Chainsaw was originally released on Xbox 360 and PS3.
