Kadokawa Hopes to Use Lollipop Chainsaw Feedback For Killer is Dead

Kadokawa has released only a few pieces of artwork for Killer is Dead.

In an interview with Impress Watch, Kadokawa Games CEO Yoshimi Yasuda said that he's speaking with Grasshopper Manufacture CEO Suda 51 to see that user feedback from Grashopper's recent Lollipop Chainsaw will be put to use in Grasshopper's next game, Killer is Dead.

The feedback for Lollipop Chainsaw was mixed, Yasuda said. While the game did get plenty of praise, he was also happy to see feedback of the form "this is bad" and "fix this" and "if you make a sequel, do this." Not only does Kadokawa listen to this form of player opinion, Yasuda noted that third party analysis played a part in Lollipop's development.

Yasuda mentioned Killer is Dead, Kadokawa's second joint project with Grasshopper, only one other time in his interview with Impress, saying that development of the game is reaching its peak. We've heard little about the game since its announcement back in April, so Yasuda's comments hopefully mean that Kadokawa will begin a promotional push soon.
