March 29, 2007 - Konami announced today that the voice of Snake, David Hayter, will be returning to the role for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots for the PS3. Hayter will provide the voice of the game's aging and worn-out Solid Snake, appeasing the demands of fanboys everywhere.
Hayter will be joined by a cast of returning voice actors such as Quinton Flynn, Paul Eiding, and Christopher Randolph, who will reprise their work as Raiden, Roy Campbell, and Hal "Otacon" Emmerich, respectively. In addition to his work as a voice actor, Hayter has made a name for himself as the screenwriter of the first two X-Men feature films (not the abysmal X3), as well as the rumored 324-page screenplay for The Watchmen film adaptation.
"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."
On March 29, David Hayter will be appearing as a special guest on The Kojima Productions Report podcast to discuss his work on the game. The podcast is available on the official Kojima Productions website, and via the iTunes music store.
