After Shadows of the Damned, what's next in the pipeline from Grasshopper Manufacture? The answer to that is Lollipop Chainsaw, a hack 'n' slash action game starring a chainsaw-wielding high school cheerleader named Juliet Sterling.
On Juliet's 18th birthday, a zombie outbreak occurs at San Romero High School. Dressed in her cheerleader garb, Juliet tears through zombies with her trusty chainsaw and busts out routines to knock back any undead who dare to get near her. As for the living head on Juliet's waist, that's a mystery left to be revealed later.
If you're wondering about all the pink colors in the screenshots, it's just Juliet's favorite color. She's given her chainsaw a pink hue and even the hearts coming out of chainsaw strikes are colored pink. There's nothing wrong with liking pink.
Grasshopper CEO Suda 51 serves as creative director for Lollipop Chainsaw while former Silent Hill veteran Akira Yamaoka provides the soundtrack. Lollipop Chainsaw will be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
