Lollipop Chainsaw Ships Over 700,000
Sex sells. ...oh okay, the game was actually lots of fun, too.
Developer Kadokawa Games hosted a special Lollipop Chainsaw Summer Appreciation Festival event, during which it was revealed that shipments for the game had surpassed 700,000 units, which means that a great many gamers have watched Juliet Starling suck on a lollipop and decapitate legions of "undead douchebags."
This performance makes it the most popular Grasshopper Manufacture title to date. To celebrate, Kadokawa CEO Yoshimi Yasuda unveiled the first trailer for Killer is Dead, the studio's new project. We don't have that trailer just yet, but various sources, including Famitsu and Impress Watch, have reported that it featured a man with a cyborg left arm and a katana in his right hand. The style appeared to be a blend of No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw, apparently. Grasshopper boss Suda 51 added that we can expect a "new hero" in Killer is Dead along with "lots of hot girls." ...big surprise.
The game is slated to launch some time next year for the PS3 and 360. As for Lollipop, we definitely recommend it if you're in the mood for some mindless titillating fun.
