Saints Row IV: National Treasure Edition Does Not Include Nicolas Cage

No Nicolas Cage appearance has been confirmed.

Deep Silver has announced a complete edition of its open-world action game, Saints Row IV. Called the National Treasure Edition, the collection will include Saints Row IV and all released downloadable content packs featuring additional weapons, skins, missions, superpowers, cheats, and vehicles.

Saints Row IV: National Treasure Edition is scheduled for a retail and digital release on July 8 at $29.99.

Despite the name, the National Treasure Edition will not include Nicolas Cage in any form. GameSpot reached out for a statement as to why this was the case, but a Deep Silver representative was not immediately available for comment.

Saints Row IV was released last in August last year on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's review.

I seriously wouldn't mind them capitalizing on next gen hardware with an upgraded HD Quadrilogy version of Saints Row.

Hate to admit it, but I'm actually disappointed by this news. Nick Cage as a super powered follower would have been...wow. Just wow. His alternate costume could have been a bear suit...did they even TRY reaching out to him!?


Might have to restart 4 at some point and make the protagonist LOOK like Nick Cage now that the idea has already implanted itself in my brain.

And this is why I didn't bite on the steam sale for this game. I knew they'd release a complete edition eventually. A few days later, and here it is.

Seriously?  You reached out for comment why there was no Nicolas Cage?  I wouldn't respond to your inane questions either.

wish i hadn't spent $60 dollars on the original release of the game... I should have waited to get all the DLC.. wish you could get all the DLC packs as a downloadable upgrade like for the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Burst DLC or the Street fighter 4 content

They need to bring back Freckle Bitches, and the ability to shop in stores!

Good, been waiting for this. Too bad they wont port this over on PS4. Seeing that the Ps3 and 360 have really bad screen tearing. SR3 didnt have any on Ps3.

Oh come on Gamespot... you know why Nicholas Cage isn't in this. No reason to ask that question.

Technically you could make Nicolas cage the hero. So this article is false. Nick is in everything lady. He is the crazy hero in every game I play with a create a character. It's not funny to mess with the cage. You just might be put in it.

Is it worth buying if you've played the third? I've heard they're very similar.

Although this looks like the worst pile of filth ever...ALL dlcs included for $30 isn't the worst deal!

@Thanatos2k If you don't have a sense of humour, I don't think Saints Row IV is the game for you.

@gamebuyer22  Even if they port on next gen... those graphics arent gonna change... and will stay remains the same.

@Fine_TableLamp I would love to buy an updated, optimized Saints Row 2 for current times and new hardware. The only problem it had was bad performance and dusty graphics, but it was Volition at it's best -  a complete game.

@R4gn4r0k How is this going to be different from what was on the Steam Sale though? The franchise pack included the game and every DLC listed on steam. I heard it's missing a "Child's Play" DLC but is that it?

The third is more fun. This one is still a good buy though.

@Navardo95 It wasn't as fun as the third but it's hardly a pile of filth...

Oh no I got the joke. But reaching out for comment... Really.

@dtimm612 @R4gn4r0k It's not different, I didn't say nor claim so.

I'm saying that I was waiting for a complete edition. I'm glad there is going to be one.


Didn't feel like buying franchise pack when I already own SR II + SR III complete edition.

@R4gn4r0k @dtimm612 Ahh I see, I thought the same since I have 2 & 3 as well, but didn't know if the price would be as good
