Grasshopper Manufacture and Suda 51’s upcoming action brawler, Lollipop Chainsaw, is getting a host of pre-order bonus incentives. At the moment, US gamers can pick from five different outfits for Juliet depending on which store they pre-order from. Considering our local retailers have also begun offering pre-order incentives, it’s likely we’ll be seeing these options in South Africa as well. If not then it’s practically a given that all five outfits will become DLC a few months after the game releases.
One of the outfits is a homage to Ash Williams, the main character from Sam Raimi’s series of cult horror films The Evil Dead and Army of Darkness. It’s odd how instantly recognisable the outfit is. It also makes complete sense considering their shared subject matter.
Other outfits, according to the press release, include a “Pinup” style, “Goth Girl” and “Foxy Funk” seventies style. On top of the pre-order incentive news, it’s been revealed that Jimmy Urine from the band Mindless Self Indulgence will be composing all of the boss battle music and providing the voice over for Zed, one of the punk rock zombie lords. Hit the jump for a trailer loaded with all these announcements.
Lollipop Chainsaw will be out on 24 April in the USA, so will likely follow a few days later for us in South Africa.
