Update: The official trailer is now live, so in case you were wondering if that really is ol' Johnny in the flesh, wonder no more! No seriously, try not to think too hard about it when aliens and lasers and hadokens are involved.

Good news, Saints Row fans! Volition and Deep Silver have recently announced the return of Johnny Gat, everyone's favorite Saint. Well, probably everyone. Either way, he's coming back in Saints Row IV after meeting an untimely demise in Saints Row: The Third.
How? Why? What? When? Where? Your guess is as good as mine. All we have right now is a teaser image on the official Saints Row Facebook page, featuring Johnny sitting atop a mountain of dead Zin aliens and looking quite pleased with himself. Then again, does Johnny have any other facial expression? I'd be pretty pleased too if I came back from the dead.
So for now, just revel in this new revelation. We'll figure out how it all happens later. In an earlier trailer (seen below), we did see Shaundi get cloned through some accidental inter-dimension nonsense.
Epic trailer is epic. Anyway, Gat could very well be brought back in a similar manner, and with all that Zin tech going around, anything is possible.
Saints Row IV will be out on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on August 20. This game is, without a doubt, my most anticipated title of 2013.
