The producer for the upcoming Lollipop Chainsaw Remake, Yoshimi Yasuda, has released a new statement to fans and prospective players regarding the nature of this project.
This title aims to make it possible for users to play the game easily, not to make a new entry. A remastered version would have been ideal, but 16 licensed songs were removed and were integral to the game’s tone, so this remake is being developed with the intention of being as close to a remaster as possible. Additionally, the story has been confirmed to be unchanged.
Lastly, censorship has been addressed as a prominent topic of concern amongst fans. Yasuda does not confirm nor deny whether it will occur, as conversations with platform holders have not happened yet. The specific wording used is that negotiation will be done “so that the game will be as close to the original version as possible.”
The full English message from Yasuda is viewable below:
