It turns out that developer Volition had a couple of tricks up its sleeves. According to Polygon, Volition’s Creative Director Steve Jaros had said at the recent San Diego Comic-Con that the company’s upcoming game—Saints Row 4—was originally going to have a Bollywood-styled song-and-dance number for an ending. Sadly enough, we'll never get to see the ending unless Volition decides to release it as DLC. However, we believe that it would've looked something like the Matthew Patel fight from the movie Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
The studio was completely ready to make the (what we think would've been a totally awesome) ending, but cost and complexity got in the way. According to Jaros, the ending was on their schedule, and they were trying to do it the right way. It came to a screeching halt when the Saints Row 4 motion capture team detailed the cost and complexity of the song and dance number. "Time kills jokes, is what it boils down to," he said.
"The stars didn't line up," said Jaros, but continued, "the spirit of the Bollywood dance number happens [at the end] and it is poetry in motion. It is so good."
Best game ever made, anyone?
Saints Row 4 follows the story of the boss of the Third Street Saints. Between the events of the previous game and this one, he has managed to become the President of the US. Earth is now under threat from an alien overloard—Zinyak. The game is set to be a conclusion to the series.
Currently, Saints Row 4 is up for pre-order on digital distribution platform Steam. Since publisher Deep Silver doesn’t have an Indian presence, it is unknown if the game will be released here through retail channels.
