Lollipop Chainsaw, the game that saw cheerleader Juliet Starling slaughter zombies with, well, a chainsaw, is getting a remake. 

Announced (opens in new tab) on Tuesday by producer Yoshimi Yasuda, the remake is being developed by many of the team who worked on the original game. The developers broke away from Kadokawa Games and founded Dragami Games back in May, gaining access to multiple IP owned by Kadokawa Games, including Lollipop Chainsaw.
