Lollipop Chainsaw receives June 2012 release date

Warner Bros Interactive has announced a June 2012 release date for Lollipop Chainsaw, the latest over-the-top action extravaganza from renowned developer Grasshopper Manufacture.

Coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the gleefully violent game stars a sassy chainsaw-wielding cheerleader called Juliet Starling, who embarks on a one-woman campaign to curb a zombie uprising.

Gamers will need to master all of Juliet's chainsaw attacks and acrobatic moves as they attempt to massacre their way through undead hordes.

Channelling a deliberately trashy B-movie vibe, the game is the brainchild of noted Japanese designer Goichi Suda, aka Suda51, who is well known for tongue-in-cheek titles such as No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned.

Collaborating with Suda51 is legendary videogame composer Akira Yamoaka and Hollywood writer and director James Gunn - of Slither and Dawn of the Dead fame - who has penned the game's story.

Meanwhile, pioneering US musician Jimmy Euringer has also been tapped to provide contributions to the soundtrack, as well as appearing as one of the boss enemies.
