Update: Warner Bros. Interactive will be publishing the game here in the west. It is set for a 2012 release.

Original story

Announced in Japanese magazine Famitsu, Suda51’s Grasshopper Manufacture are working on a new game for Xbox 360 and PS3, which involves zombies, a chainsaw and a cheerleader.

You take control of Juliet Starling, an 18 year-old cheerleader who finds her school filled with zombies. So, like any cheerleader would, she uses a chainsaw to make them extinct. There will be other ways to rid the school of zombies, even involving Juliet’s cheerleading skills.

Akira Yamaoka, famed for his Silent Hill music while at Konami, will be composing the music.

No western release has been announced as of yet for Lollipop Chainsaw, but apparently such a release is in the works.
