In an amazing twist if you played and completed Saints Row: The Third, Deep Silver revealed today via a graphic on Twitter that the loved and feared Johnny Gat will return in Saints Row 4. More accurately they said “Johnny Gat is back”. In the graphic he appears to be sitting on piles of bodies of what look like aliens but at this point we can’t be sure.
After the events of the last game, most of us weren’t sure that Johnny Gat would be back but its Saints Row and anything can happen. This becomes less surprising considering that this is the last game in this story arc, it only makes sense that such a central figure in the overall story would be back for one last hurrah. It was also confirmed that Daniel Dae Kim will return as the voice of Johnny Gat. At this point it’s not clear on exactly how Johnny Gat makes his return but we can be sure of one thing and that is that whatever it is, it will be EPIC.
