[IMGW]http://media.1up.com/media?id=3141486[/IMGW]Is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots still coming this year? We sure hope so, but one way or the other, Hideo Kojima will once again deliver the same, excellent voice acting we've come to expect from the series so far, as Konami's announced David Hayter and the rest of the ensemble Metal Gear cast is officially returning once again.

Hayter continues to voice the iconic Solid Snake, while joined by Quinton Flynn (Raiden), Paul Eiding (Roy Campbell) Christopher Randolph (Hal "Otacon" Emmerich) and Debbie Mae West will reprise her role as Meryl Campbell. Kris Zimmerman, who's acted as director of the recording sessions in the past, will also oversee work on Metal Gear Solid 4.

"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," said Hayter in the press release.

We haven't seen anything on Snake's latest outing since last Tokyo Game Show last year. C'mon, Konami!
