2012 release hits new milestone for Grasshopper Manufacture

Grasshopper Manufacture's Lollipop Chainsaw has reached the million copies sold milestone, 21 months after it went on sale on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Grasshopper Manufacture even teased Twitter followers that it considered the sales justification for a sequel to the hack and slash title.

Lollipop Chainsaw was released in June 2012 by Kadokawa Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and achieved a Metacritic of 70.

Speaking at a Kadokawa Games event in August 2012 CEO Goichi Suda revealed the game had sold 700,000 units, setting a new record for Grasshopper Manufacture.

Ha. When I met Suda at a press event, I recall saying the game could sell a million over time and he said "I hope so", as I think we both wanted to see some sort of follow up down the road because grashopper worked so hard on the game. I love this silly game for a few reasons from the soundtrack to the fact that it doesn't give a hoot what you think of it if you haven't played it to see what makes it so much goofy fun.

Sadly this is one of the many games in my backlog that I still haven't gotten around to playing since picking it up last summer.

I really liked this game. My only quirk was the repetitive gameplay. But it wasnt bad. I purchased it and dont regret it.Im really looking foward to a follow up.

As big fan of Suda's work I'm happy of this result, although I don't consider this his best work is still a good result. Also a person so unique and then so humble and nice when you meet him in person deserves every little big of success he can get.

@Andreia

Now that I think about it, has this guy released any of it's games on PC?
