Lollipop Chainsaw Remake: The Producer Responds To Concerns

Yoshimi Yasuda, the producer of the Lollipop Chainsaw remake and president of Dragami Games, has issued a statement explaining the situation with the chainsaw lady.


Yasuda wrote on Twitter: „It has been a week since the Lollipop Chainsaw remake has been announced. Many fans have inquired about the contents of the previous announcement, and we would like to take the time to share our thoughts and intentions regarding the project. The primary goal of the Lollipop Chainsaw remake project is to make it so that players who wish to play Lollipop Chainsaw can do so quickly, not to create a new Lollipop Chainsaw game.

Of course, the ideal thing to do would be to make a remastered version of the original game, changing nothing. However, we were, unfortunately, unable to include 16 of the licensed songs, which were a significant part of the original game’s feel. So we are instead aiming for a remake that is as close as possible to a remaster.

We have taken notice that there has been speculation that the remake will change the story. We believe that Lollipop Chainsaw‘s story is a massive part of what fans love about the original game, and we, the development staff, feel the same. As such, the story will not be changed in the remake. Additionally, we do not intend to change the aesthetics of the game. In the previous announcement, the mention of how the game will have a more realistic look was meant to refer to how we will use the advanced rendering technology available in current game consoles. We do not wish to change Juliet’s design, and the assumption that we want to is baseless. We were the ones who created Juliet’s model data after significant trial and error ten years ago and felt attached to her more than anyone else.

Finally, we learned after the announcement of the Lollipop Chainsaw remake that many fans are worried about censorship in the game. We have not discussed the issue with the platform holders yet. We thus cannot say anything about the topic, but we can say that we intend to negotiate with the platform holders to make it so that the game can be as close to the original version as possible,” Yasuda wrote.

We have our doubts about how much this announcement has helped.
