Lollipop Chainsaw RePop is finally coming this September and will come with many modern features


The first trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw RePop is now available, as well as its release date.

Lollipop Chainsaw RePop was first announced in 2022 and was initially scheduled for release in 2023, although it was later delayed to 2024. Now, developer Dragami Games has released the first trailer for the remake of the iconic game, which is being described as “ the final version of the game that leaves the story unchanged, with an emphasis on quality of life improvements and additional gameplay content.” One such addition is the ability to switch between two modes – Original Mode, “based on the original release,” or RePop Mode, “which features less violence and uses pop art damage effects.” The trailer notes that the game’s footage uses RePop mode, which fits the game’s tone well, which is no surprise.

In addition to showing off the game in action, Dragami also confirmed that the game will release digitally on September 25 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Dragami also introduced several modern features and quality of life improvements separate post, as well as faster recharge times, a modern chain hit hunting system has been added to the Chainsaw Blaster, which can raise speed after landing consecutive hits, as well as auto-lock and auto-fire modes. There are also modern chainsaws, 30 costumes and a time attack mode.

For those of you who are modern to the world of Lollipop Chainsaw, this is a bit strange. No More Heroes creator Suda51 directed the game, but it was written by James Gunn of all people – you know him best now as the head of DC Studios and director of Guardians of the Galaxy, but he was once better known for the Slither films and the two live-action Scooby Doo films. Neither of them are involved with this remake, but they’re both probably pretty busy right now, especially Gunn. The original game was met with mostly average reviews at the time, but we’ll see how it does in a good decade and a bit beyond.
