Saint’s Row: Gat Out of Hell Has a Disney-Style Musical Number

on

If you’ve played the Saints Row series, you don’t associate Saint’s Row: Gat Out of Hell’s  Johnny Gat with Disney’s canon of delightful animated musicals. Splattering brains and body parts, sure. Singing and dancing, no.

But one of the most hyped scenes of Volition’s upcoming Gat Out of Hell standalone expansion features a full-on Disney-style musical number set in Hell. And yeah, Gat sings.

The musical number spins out of an argument between Satan and his daughter, Jezebel. Because the player character from the first four Saint’s Row games is clearly the most deadly person in the universe, Satan has tried to arrange a shotgun wedding between the protagonist and Jezebel as encouragement for The Boss/President/God Emperor to lead Satan’s armies in a war against heaven. But the heart wants what it wants, and Jezebel does not want The Boss/President/God Emperor, creating a dilemma fit for a Disney Princess.

Gat also gets a talking gun as a sidekick and there are other Disney elements, Creative Director Steve Jaros told Game Informer.

“A lot of the plot of this is very Disney-inspired,” Jaros says. “The story book is at the beginning of Sleeping Beauty. All of the cutscenes were inspired by different Disney movies. Sometimes it’s a lot subtler. This is the ‘Part of your World’” cutscene. [Jezebel] runs away, and there’s a scene like the one where Aladdin meets Jasmine. There’s the Merida cutscene; she doesn’t want to get married. They’re based on small kernels.”

Gat Out of Hell features the city of New Hades which Volition says is about half the size of Steelport in Saints Row IV, new powers, new weapons like a lethal arm-chair called the Arm Chairmageddon, and Gat and hacker Kinzie Kensington as playable character both solo and cooperatively.

“Gat Out of Hell” will be out Jan. 27. for the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The standalone version for PC and last-gen consoles will cost $19.99. It will be bundled in the PS4 and Xbox One versions, titled Saints Row IV: Re-Elected.
