And for Grasshopper’s next act… Lollipop Chainsaw!

[Update: Famitsu has put some images of the game on its website, so head over there to check them out. I’m not changing my stupid mock-up header, because I worked so hard on it.]

Grasshopper Manufacture would be hard pressed to follow up a game that features monster poop as checkpoints, but it seems up to the task. The latest issue of Famitsu has revealed the first details on the developer’s upcoming game, Lollipop Chainsaw.

The game appears to be a third-person action title that will feature Juliet, a young cheerleader who comes from a long line of zombie hunters. When the undead invade her high school, she does what any warmblooded teenager would do: defends her school spirit with a chainsaw and hacks them to bits.

As you can imagine, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 title will be more than a little bloody. Based on the (tiny, tiny) scan of the Famitsu article, I’m getting an OneChanbara vibe. Things could be worse, I guess.
