Saints Row the Third's April Fool's Joke Gets Real with Enter the Dominatrix

Remember that silly April Fool's joke from Saints Row the Third about the alien kidnapping the leaders of the Saints and trapping them in a simulated reality with super powers? It's now a standalone expansion due out this fall. Indulge me as I fist pump triumphantly.

Saints Row the Third: Enter the Dominatrix is exactly what the April 1st prank advertised: An alien has kidnapped the Saints and trapped them in a virtual reality simulation of Steelport. Apparently they were the only humans capable of halting a full-blown alien invasion. Why not kill them? Shut up, it's cool.

From the official announcement:

"Faster than a speeding cyber jetbike, more powerful than a roided-out Luchadore, able to leap flying aircraft carriers in a single bound… That's the power you'll find inside the Dominatrix. Use it for good. Use it for evil. Use it for whatever you want. As always in Saints Row, it's up to you," said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Game Production, THQ Inc. "With a franchise with more than 11 million units shipped globally, it's incredibly gratifying to have the flexibility to give Saints Row fans the features they want most." He later added, "Freaking super powers."

Saints Row the Third with super powers. That's everything I ever wanted. Dammit, here comes another fist pump.

More on Saints Row the Third: Enter the Dominatrix shall be made known when THQ feels like it.
