The U.K.’s leading independent videogame store, That Game Shop, has this evening announced another Hollywood actor for a forthcoming promotion for Saints Row IV which launches in August.
Coming off the back of successful launches over the last year or so for Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed III, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 and FUSE, mixing it up with Hollywood actor Cas Anvar and our self proclaimed queen of gaming Gwendoline Yeo TGS have bagged Arif S Kinchen, voice of Pierce Washington from the game for promotional duties.
Although we would love to chat to Arif, and I’m sure we will, about his role in Kid N Play’s House Party movie in the 80′s as well as his other TV and movie roles, Arif has become a highly regarded voice actor in the gaming world. Pimping it out as Pierce Washington through the Saints Row series is one thing but Arif has also voiced in other huge franchises like Bioshock Infinite, Red Faction Guerilla, Motorstorm Apocalypse to name a few.
So what is Arif being asked to do for the greater good of all things gaming? Well, I’m sure there’ll be a couple of announcements over the next few weeks but in the meantime any pre ordered copy of Saints Row IV will have Arif’s signature on the cover for you to cherish forever. Haven’t pre ordered it yet? Get yo ass over to That Game Shop’s pre order page here and get that game ordered NOW! What? You have pre-ordered somewhere else? First of all, allow us to smack you upside the head with a dildo bat and then we will let you refund that pre order so you can head back over to That Game Shop and pre order there.
Saints Row IV is scheduled for release on 23d August 2013 and if you’re unsure about the game then feel free to read our initial impressions as we were allowed to embrace crazy a while ago.
