Lollipop Chainsaw coming stateside June 12th

Lollipop Chainsaw, Grasshopper Manufacture's gas-powered, over-the-top zombie-carving game, will launch in North America June 12th, and in Europe June 13th. The announcements came at a Warner Bros. event at GDC 2012, which featured both zombie and cheerleader cosplayers, a combination guaranteed to fill everyone in attendance with unbridled anxiety.

Those launch dates line up troublingly well with Grasshopper's commercially tepid June 2011 release, Shadows of the Damned. Then again, that particular game didn't feature some of the elements seen in Lollipop Chainsaw's latest batch of screenshots, which is to say, characters who vaguely resemble Bootsy Collins. We've got our fingers crossed for more cameos by members of the Parliament Funkadelic.
