Saints Row 4 ending almost included a Bollywood scene

Monday, 22nd July 2013 00:06 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Volition originally planned to end Saints Row 4 with a Bollywood-style song and dance routine.

“It was on our schedule, and we were trying to do it the right way,” Volition’s creative director Steve Jaros said during a panel at San Diego Comic Con, as reported by Polygon.

The developer planned on a three minute scene, investigating choreography and looking for the right song.

Unfortunately, the idea was scrapped after the motion capture team worked out how expensive and difficult the addition would prove,

“The stars didn’t line up,” Jaros added, but “the spirit of the Bollywood dance number happens and it is poetry in motion. It is so good.”

Saints Row 4 is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Windows PC on August 20 in North America and August 23 in Europe. It’s not going next-gen because Volition was burnt out on hardware launch titles by PS2 RPG Summoner.

    Hahahahahahha, oh wow how would it be cool if they managed to do it!

    I imagine they took inspiration from some badass Dabangg dance scenes like this one: http://youtu.be/rI7lgI6jbEU
    Maybe with the MC or Johnny Gat as Chulbul Pandey, lol

    And, with that, any hope of seeing Saints Row the Musical fully realised went up in smoke!

    It’s a shame they couldn’t manage it as that would have been incredible.
