Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, the upcoming follow-up to Saints Row IV, has taken the series’ trademark absurdity to a new level with a full-blown, Disneyesque musical number in a new trailer released by publisher Deep Silver. Who could have guessed that the series which began with prosaic gang warfare in 2006 would somehow arrive at a flame-wreathed Satan belting to his daughter in a rich baritone about her arranged marriage? Feast your eyes and ears:
Developed by Deep Silver Volition and High Voltage Software, Gat Out of Hell is a pseudo-sequel to Saints Row IV. After liberating Earth from aliens in the previous game, the leader of the Saints/president of the United States is kidnapped by Satan, who intends to marry the stolen Saint off to his daughter, Jezebel.
You play as Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington in Hell, trying to free their boss and “shoot Satan in the face.” The game features historical icons, old friends, and a talking gun, along with all the genre-savvy, open world silliness that fans have come to expect from the series.
Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell will be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on January 20, 2015 for $20. Its release coincides with the remastered and content-complete Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, which brings the series to PS4 and XB1 for the first time.
