Lollipop Chainsaw is coming back from the dead, in some shape or form

Whether it’s a sequel, remaster, or remake is currently unclear. Lollipop Chainsaw is apparently coming back in some shape or form, which is probably one of the more unexpected revivals of the year. This year seems to be all about bringing back games that no one ever thought would get a second chance. Lollipop Chainsaw seems to be joining the likes of Kao the Kangaroo with a new ‘something’, but what that something currently is isn’t particularly clear. Yoshimi Yasuda of Dragami Games tweeted earlier this week that “Lollipop Chainsaw is back by Dragami Games. Please look forward to it.”…
