Saints Row Devs Won't Back Down From Series' New Direction - IGN Daily Fix

published 3 weeks ago by IGN.com

On today's IGN The Fix: Games, Saints Row developer Volition has stated that it is "not backing down on this game" after a portion of the series' fanbase expressed disappointment with the direction of the newly-announced reboot. The official Saints Row Twitter account has been responding to numerous critical messages since the reveal of the reboot at Gamescom's Opening Night Live. Replying to a user who said that they felt "like I wasted my time defending you guys," the official account said "We are not backing down on this game. We get it, it's new and it's a shock reaction to a reboot like no other." When Elden Ring was first announced, one of the biggest surprises was how it's a collaboration between FromSoftware and A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin. Since then, more information about the collaboration has come to light and while Martin was responsible for creating the overall world and mythos of Elden Ring, the in-game text is directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki. Nickelodeon All-Stars Brawl, the Smash Bros-like crossover fighting game developed by Ludosity and Fair Play Labs, has announced two new characters in the form of CatDog and April O'Neil. Following her Gamescom 2021 Opening Night reveal as a playable character in TMNT: Shredders Revenge, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle jumpsuit-wearing news reporter April O'Neil was announced to be joining the roster of characters set to battle it out in Nickelodeon's All-Stars Brawl. O'Neil's reveal trailer saw her back in her iconic yellow look as she showed off an impressive move that features acrobatic flips and split kicks alongside a weaponized microphone. Kim has all that in your Daily Fix!
