Saints Row: The Third doesn't take the world very seriously at all and that's why we love it. Take this trailer for example.
It stars a giant pink cat wearing sunglasses named Professor Genki, a fake Japanese shouty man, and introduces some 'maximum pleasure' pre-order-exclusive items you can get in the 'Hyper Ordinary pre-order pack'.
Could this be the 'secret weapon' developer Volition told CVG it's "dreading" the public reaction to?
The pack includes:
- Professor Genki's Super Ballistic Man-a-pult: Cruise Steelport in style with this vacuum-action human-cannonball truck. Suck up pedestrians and use them as live ammunition against the forces of evil, and everyone else.
- Professor Genki's "Octopuss" Weapon: Fire baby octopi onto your enemies' heads! Watch as the octopi massage their scalps and your enemies fight for you! Enemies can be friends too!
- Professor Genki's Leisure Stunt Suit: The ultimate in comfort and tight-fitting apparel, the Genki Leisure Stunt Suit is perfect for skydiving over Steelport or to wear while ejecting from high-flying fighter jets. Free Genki mask included!
Furthermore, in North America the first 3,000 Saints Row customers on THQ's Online Store will receive the 'Saints Row Season Pass' - which delivers the game's first three DLC packs for absolutely noubt - for free.
