Toys R Us.com has Lollipop Chainsaw up for preorder at a cool $44.99 with free shipping ($15 off MSRP) for both PS3 and Xbox 360.


Different websites are giving off different dates for the release though. Amazon, Target, and Wikipedia = 4/24, TRU = 5/22, BB = 6/1, and GameStop = 8/1. I know for a fact that it has an official release of May 19th for Japan but WB hasn't announced a firm release date for United States so tread lightly. Signs obviously point to an April release date for the US though.


Lollipop Chainsaw now has an official release of June 12, 2012


Still, a decent price for a game that looks to be pretty fun. If you want those preorder codes you are out of luck if you choose to order from TRU. The preorder costumes are exclusive to Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop.

Also, recently there were some new anime inspired costumes announced for the game. If any of you watch anime and are fans of High School of the Dead, Deadman Wonderland, Is This a Zombie, or Manyu Hiken-Cho then this news will excite you! Screenshots of all the costumes can be found at the link below, thanks Rychy.

I never heard of this game until I read this title. Thought it sounded hilarious and checked the trailer on youtube. My first thought was Onechanbara but American-style. Thanks for posting this.

I love Suda, but I know this game will be cheap in no time, plus I still have to beat SotD...

I guess I didn't pay much attention but it always seemed like a XBL & PSN game to me. Wasn't aware it was a full retail release. I'll wait until its priced along those lines... $10-$15.

How is this any different from that Onechanbara game? Looks to be pretty damn close. If that is any indication, this will drop like an anvil.

I'll wait 'till I see reviews before I add it to my "want" list. I like the premise. Kinda sounds like a Bayonetta style game, and I love Bayonetta. I'm not naive enough to expect the gameplay to even come close to Bayonetta though.

Still... I love any slasher, as long as it's got solid controls. Let's hope this one doesn't bomb.

Wow, not even close. And seeing as how this game is actually getting advertised and put out there it won't drop as fast as we think.

I'm definitely getting this after playing the sadly underplayed masterpiece that was Shadows of the Damned.

Suda 51 games are definitely quality games. No More Heroes, No More Heroes 2, and Shadows of the Damned were all really good games and were liked by video game critics. Let's not forget about Killer7 either. The thing that sucks is that his games never sell all that well; they are definitely niche titles with a rather small following. Still, I have no doubts that this game will be both crazy and fun.

This game will be different from Onechenbara because it isn't completely focused on fan service. There is definitely an interesting story to the game. They even got James Gunn (writer of Dawn of the Dead) to write the story for Lollipop Chainsaw.

Still maybe zombies are getting a bit worn out? I hope that this game can pull through and be received well. I'll be following suit with preordering from a store like GameStop (just the $5 down) to get the costumes but also ordering from TRU since $45 is a decent price at launch. It will probably be around $30 give or take a few months though.

Tempted, but considering how fast SOTD went to 20. I might just hold off.

Not the same publisher but if Warner doesn't market this right, it'll probably suffer the same fate.

To be fair though WB has already done more to show off this game than EA ever did for SOTD

publishers keep whining about used game sales hurting them. why do they think people are buying used? $60+ tax is too much for most of us to put out on games, especially with so many of them. start them out at $30 new and sell higher volumes.

I've been interested since they first announced it, but I'm probably going to wait. Suda's styles are awesome, but I've never played one of his games where the gameplay was good.

Yes, that trailer was hilarious. Game looks fun. Just, it's going to drop fast, so I'll wait.

Oh, and yes, Shadows of the Damned was awesome. Great 20 dollar purchase.

Kind of a shame, of course it'll be really cheap eventually if everyone has the mentality of waiting for it to drop. This happened with a bunch of great games that'll never get sequels. Of course this IS cheapassgamer and I don't really blame anyone since this probably isn't a game everyone wants to spend $60 on, but even so...

in either case I'm probably getting this from Gamestop, I really want that Evil Dead costume.

I agree, Pretzle, it's a shame.
It's kind of like Darkness 2. It's a great game, but with everyone wanting to wait until it gets cheaper because of the game's length, we'll probably never see a Darkness 3.

People want cheap games; I'm not upset or anything about people wanting to sleep on this. But Platinum/Clover/Suda games are always fun and unique and I don't see them lasting too much into the next generation of games when dev prices increase even more.
It'll be sad to see them go too.

Or maybe I am just too doom-and-gloom today.
