Saints Row 3DS/XBLA won’t play like Saints Row

According to THQ core games boss Danny Bilson, the 3DS/XBLA spin-off of Saints Row won’t play like a Saints Row game, despite original plans that would have had it do just that. 

“It’s going to be a different — we actually changed the design and are doing something more unique,†he explains. “This is just creative but we wound up feeling the game we were building was too much like a section of Saints Row that you could play in Saints Row.

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

Frankly, I wouldn’t mind a traditional Saints Row row experience on my 3DS, but it’s cool that they’re actually working hard on making something fresh and unique. I’m guessing we’ll see a top-down game, a’la old school GTA, but who knows? So long as it’s as absurd as Saints Row 2 was, I’m looking forward to it.
