During their broadcast today, the Iron Galaxy Studios team revealed that Johnny Gat from Volition Inc.’s Saints Row franchise will be crossing over to Divekick Addition Edition as the next playable character. He will arrive with new stage “Da Beech” when the title appears on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Both will be free of charge for existing Addition Edition owners.

Johnny will come with his very own narrative in the game’s story mode, and employs a wide variety of tools from his original series in addition to the titular divekicks. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

Divekick Addition Edition + and Johnny Gat will be playable at PAX East, so be sure to stop by the Iron Galaxy Studios booth if you’ll be in attendance.

      Just give Thunder a Baz alternate costume. In fact, with the developer switch give all the KI characters Divekick alt costumes:

      Jago and Shadow Jago = Dive and Kick
      Orchid = Kung Pao
      Sadira = Dr. Shoals
      Sabrewulf = Redacted
      Glacius = Jefailey
      Spinal = Uncle Sensei
      Fulgore = S-Kill

      Credit to Iron Galaxy for not going the easy route and taking another shot at Decapre.

      I guess that’ll happen another day. /Kappa

      • Nael

        The character’s been in the works for a while now….they first hinted at a new character during the stream of all the DKAE changes, which was a few weeks before the Decapre reveal.

        Besides, the game already has a pallete swap in the two namesakes. I eagerly await the addition of Lung Kao down the line, though.

        • Gabriel González

          Name it Kao Lung so it is more subtle.

    • Redblaze27

      Why?
      They are different beasts and I enjoy them both for different reasons.

  • TheWalleh

    Looks like I’m dling Dive Kick again until I re-realize I’m terrible at fighting games.

  • BlackMasamune

    Da Beech? I hope there’s a guy wearing a powerglove in the background.

  • Kurow Akutenshi

    Call me when there’s a full Saints Row fighting game.

  • Rockito

    No more Divekick pls, that game is boring and too overpriced, there are a
    lot of doujin fighting games much better than this and for free. Iron
    Galaxy should be fulltime on KI.

    • JasinWalraven

      zblah blah blah blah.
      zblah,
      zblah blahbitty blah
      (yer Mom)

    • Natat

      Saying no more Divekick since there are a lot of doujin fighting games better than it for free, and then saying they should focus on KI lol…

  • Can someone explain the connection? Or is this straight random…

  • Darklurkr23

    Divekick meh. It’s dead already online.
    Where is my MK9 Vita and additional Injustice stuff dlc updates huh 🙁

    • Ben

      I’m sure Iron Galxay will get right on that…

  • Richard N

    “So you’re Julius’ new boy huh? You don’t look like much. Then again, I don’t look like I have an eight inch cock, so I guess we’re both full of surprises.”
