This is officially the greatest game ever made.
Saints Row IV creative director Steve Jaros recently revealed at a panel for the game at the San Diego Comic Con that, among many ideas, one of the ways they planned to end the game was though a 3-minute Bollywood dance number. However, the idea was nixed because “the stars didn’t line up.” The other matter about the motion-capture coordinator wanting an entire dance troupe for the sequence to get the movements down didn’t help money matters either.
But worry not because the ending is still just as epic. “So we changed the ending into something different, but the spirit of the Bollywood dance number still happens and it’s poetry in motion. It’s so good.” Along with a fire-breathing dragon, this makes two outlandish ideas that Volition have nixed for the upcoming open world action adventure.
Of course, with aliens, mechs, Dubstep guns and the return of Gat, there’ll still be plenty of insanity happening when Saints Row IV releases on August 20th for Xbox 360, PC and PS3 in North America.
