The dead are coming back to life in Saints Row 4, since series staple Johnny Gat is making his triumphant fourth appearance in the series.

A tweet from Deep Silver ushered in the return of Johnny Gat, believed to be dead, in Saints Row 4.

Daniel Dae Kim, the voice of Johnny Gat, retweeted the announcement and confirmed that he will be back as the infamous Saint.

The character was thought to have been killed while aboard a plane owned by The Syndicate in Saints Row: The Third, so just how he'll return in Saints Row 4 is a mystery.

But if the replies to the tweets are any indication, fans don't rightly care and welcome the return of the Gat.

Let us know what you think about Johnny Gat's resurrection in the comments section and look out for the game when it drops on Aug. 20, 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
