Saints Row 4 is out now; here’s our Saints Row 4 review.

Although now cut due to expense, Saints Row 4 was originally to end with a three minute-long Bollywood-style dance number.

Speaking on a panel at Comic-Con, Volition’s creative director Steve Jaros said “”It was on our schedule and we were trying to do it the right way [but] the stars didn’t line up.”

The team had been behind the idea, even tracking down “the right Bollywood song” and beginning the dance’s choreography. What sank it was the estimated cost the motion capture team came back with, apparently three minutes of characters dancing is mighty expensive.

Despite this, Jaros says “the spirit of the Bollywood dance number happens [at the end] and it is poetry in motion. It is so good.”

We’ll have to wait till its release next month to decide if that’s the case.

Jaros also revealed that the leader of the invading aliens, Emperor Zinyak, will read Shakespeare monologues and the entire first chapter of Pride and Prejudice on the in-game radio station. So, we’ve got that to look forward to.

Still, I wouldn’t want you to miss out on a Bollywood-style dance, so:

Cheers, Polygon.
