It feels like forever ago when Suda51 dropped their annoucement trailer for Lollipop Chainsaw. Ever since then we have anxiously been waiting for an official release date. All this while the ladies and gentle men at SUDA51, Grasshopper Manufacture and Kadokawa Games have been releasing tons of video’s, screen’s, and character information to both tease us and keep us anticipating more.
Well the wait is finally over. It was announced via Game Informer and G4 that Lollipop Chainsaw would be available June 12th. With the release being just over 3 months away I don’t think I could get much more excited.
With this announcement came some “Hands on Impressions” from Tim Turi of Game Informer. Here is what he had to say
Kicking ass in the arcade felt natural and fun. Lollipop Chainsaw is a fairly button-mashy excursion. Sure, you can methodically time swipes of the chainsaw, but blindly brandishing the candy-coated power tool is just as effective. I dug sawing zombified video game nerds in half with the push of a few buttons. Juliet’s flashy acrobatics and short-skirted antics are mixed up with some quicktime events as well…..
All I can say is WOW, and how the heck do I get my hands on this game before release? I want some first-hand Impressions!
Lollipop Chainsaw will be available for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on June 12, 2012 in North America and June 15th in Europe.
