Saints Row: The Third Remastered has been announced by publisher Deep Silver for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Epic Games Store). It will launch on May 22 for $39.99.
Saints Row: The Third Remastered is an updated and enhanced version of the 2011-released original. Developed in cooperation with Sperasoft, the remastered version boasts retextured environments, character models, and visual effects, enhanced graphics with a new lighting engine, and includes all three expansion packs and more than 30 pieces of downloadable content from the original game.
Here is an overview of the game, via Deep Silver:
“About the Game
Saints Row: The Third Remastered gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. This is your city. These are your rules. Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport the original city of sin has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs, and guns.
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks, and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.
Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and fight against a highly trained military force by your lonesome in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen.
About the Enhancements

Saints Row: The Third Remastered features retextured environments, character models and visual effects, enhanced graphics and a new lighting engine.

Here is a synopsis of the character, provided by Bandai Namco:
“Pro Hero “Hawks” will join the My Hero One’s Justice 2 character roster this spring with his powerful wings, keen eyes, and resourceful intelligence. Hawks’ quirk—Fierce Wings—grants him a large pair of formidable feathery wings that allow him to fly. Hawks can telekinetically control each feather with ease to use them as projectiles and can sense people’s locations through vibrations in the air.”
My Hero One’s Justice 2 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.
Publisher Armor Games Studios and developers Vladimir Fedyushkin and Nicolai Danielsen announced Aerial combat shooter Jet Lancer will launch for Switch, PC, and Mac on May 12 for $14.99 / £13.49 / €14.99. The PC version will be available via Steam, GOG, Humble Store, and itch.io.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Jet Lancer is a high-velocity aerial combat shooter where you duel enemy aviators, hunt giant robots, and defy death at supersonic speeds.
You are Ash Leguinn: badass pilot, highly paid mercenary, and flight-school drop out. Your day job is fine—the daily grind of dealing with Sky Pirates pays the bills—but nothing compares to the rush of demolishing a ninety-ton mechanical monstrosity at the speed of sound. And you’ll have your chance. As mechanized weapons converge on Root City, you’ll have to be at the top of your game to survive, and you’ll have to surpass your limits if you want to save the world.
Be A Badass – Jet Lancer is easy to learn but hard to master. Precise and responsive controls make you feel like an ACE as you dodge and weave through enemy fire without even a scratch in the paint.
Surpass Your Limits in Ash’s Story – Make your way from rookie aviator to ACE pilot in a story-driven single player campaign containing 30 missions, 11 bosses, and only 1 chance to save the world.
Aggressive New Game Plus – Go higher, further, and faster in Jet Lancer’s New Game Plus mode which features more relentless AI, new attack patterns, and some fancy new upgrades for the LANCE to provide a fresh experience.
Choose From an Extensive Arsenal – Customizable loadout with 28 different guns, payloads, and flight components to let you dominate the skies in any way you’d like.
Customize with Accessibility Options – We think everyone should have the opportunity to feel like an ACE pilot. To that end we’ve included anti-fatigue control toggles, adjustable dodge windows, an invincibility option, and the ability to disable screenshake and screen flashing.
Talking Cat – There’s a talking cat! His name is Lem.
