Konami has announced that actor David Hayter is set to return to once again voice the iconic Solid Snake (now old and decrepit) in the upcoming PlayStation 3 release Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Hayter will be joined by other returning voice actors Quinton Flynn, Paul Eiding and Christopher Randolph who will continue their work as the voices of Raiden, Roy Campbell and Hal “Otacon” Emmerich, respectively. Kris Zimmerman will also return to the series to direct the voice acting sessions for the game.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this game. What I’ve seen of Metal Gear Solid 4 has absolutely blown me away. To bring the focus of the story back to Solid Snake, and to work with Kris Zimmerman and many of the amazing actors that provided iconic voices for the previous games, is like coming home,” said Hayter. “I’m so proud and grateful to have been involved with Mr. Kojima as the voice of Snake, for nearly a decade, on this legendary video game series. This game is going to plunge players into the ultimate Metal Gear experience. And personally, I can’t wait to play it.”
David Hayter is also serving as a special guest on [url=http://www.konami.jp/kojima_pro/english/]The Kojima Productions Report[/url] podcast today to discuss his involvement with the Metal Gear Solid series and his approach to portraying a very different Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid 4.
