Johnny Gat is Back in Saints Row IV

Ok, fair warning when I say this post has a spoiler regarding the last Saints Row.

If you played the first twenty minutes of Saints Row: The Third, you’d know that fan favorite Johnny Gat was presumed dead after a shootout on an airplane. Well it looks like Volition isn’t giving up on the character just yet as they’ve tweeted not only the announcement that he will be back in Saints Row IV next month, but they’ve also included a nice piece of concept art to go with it.

To be honest, I kind of wish they would have kept this a secret. It would have been a huge surprise shortly after its release, but now it’s just a happy feeling. Regardless, it’s good to have Johnny back, even though we don’t know what kind of role he will play in the upcoming game. Expect more Gat (and hopefully Daniel Dae Kim) on August 20 when Saints Row IV ships for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC platforms.
