Mr. Announcements himself, THQ core games boss Danny Bilson, has told Shack the Saints Row 3DS and Xbox Live Arcade title that ties in with Saints Row 3 will have a “completely original game mechanic”.

Speaking at the unveil of the publisher’s Montreal studio, Bilson said the game’s design has also been “changed”.

“It’s going to be a different–we actually changed the design and are doing something more unique,” said Bilson.

“This is just creative but we wound up feeling the game we were building was too much like a section of Saint’s Row that you could play in Saint’s Row.

“Now we’ve come up with a new design with a completely original game mechanic and we’re building out something that supports Saint’s Row with that.”

Bilson revealed at E3 the Saints Row 3DS title was also an XBLA game that will tie in with Saints Row 3.

When we’ll see it is unknown, but the first glimpse of SR3 will come in December.
