The lights are on
It's important to note that 700,000 units shipped worldwide doesn't necessarily mean units sold, but it's an impressive number none-the-less. According to developer Grasshopper's CEO, Suda 51, it's the highest number of units the company as ever shipped.
The announcement of the game's success comes from the Lollipop Chainsaw Summer Appreciation Festival in Japan. As part of the festival Grasshopper also released a trailer for its next tile, Killer is Dead. The trailer has not made it to the Internet quite yet, but it apparently features an art style similar to Killer 7 and No More Heroes with a hero who carries a samurai sword in his right hand, and has a bionic left arm. Suda 51 promised that the game will have also have, "lots of hot girls."

Hmmm... I should probably get this game soon... but I might wait until the price drops a little bit further. Still, I am glad the company is doing well and I can't wait for Killer is Dead.
This game is awesome. There are so many funny quotes in the game. I'm very happy to hear this news.
I honestly thought this game would be a complete and utter disaster in terms of sales/shipped copies. I loved it and am glad to see Suda 51 have more success.
Tara Strong picked a very weird game to voice act in...
Wait, they have a festival dedicated to Lollipop Chainsaw?! I know they have a festival celebrating... things that shouldn't be mentioned here, but that is ridiculous-ly awesome!
Well done world......
