Turns out David Hayter might still play Snake in 'Metal Gear Solid V' after all

Well, this certainly is a long shot, but let's take a look anyway. Just moments ago (April 20) this video (also embedded for convenience) emerged on the net under the YouTube channel moniker "OnigawaraV," hinting at... something. (PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

When are we not getting trolled by Kojima? O.o
showtimefolks  +   952d ago
I said that when all th news about him not playing snake came out

It's just Kojima p,aging with us or trolling us like PP at GTTV

Hideo Kojima's bullshit comes to light
Many people including David Hayter were shocked at the fact he wouldn't be voicing Snake, but kept Japanese voice actor reprising the role. This shows again how Kojima is a egotistical asshole that only thinks of himself. I am sure the fan outcry is forcing him to reconsider his original decision. I am sure in new months you will see he reaches out to Hayter and brings him back. If I were Hayter, I would tell him to kiss my ass. I like the franchise but cant stand the creator. From how he treats his development team to his not giving credit to his inspiration for the game. Saying it was mere coincidence with resemblance to Escape from New York or Kurt Russell

It wasn't an April Fools joke because it was announced before April Fools(March 27, 2013). Hayter tweeted it on that day but the announcement came before that date. No one believes it was and this wouldn't be said 20 days later if it was conceived as an AF joke. You should really read these things for yourself instead of looking like sheep.

Source: reported it 4 days before Hayter thanked his fans on April 1st.

Whitefeather  +   952d ago
Yes please, David Hayter is Snake.
Why change Hayter? Seriously... :/
After this long Kojima changes VA in possibly the last MGS game? It makes no sense. I really hope Kojima and David are trolling us. Heck Solid Snake is called David!! Hayter & Snake are perfect for each other.

Well, Kojima said that his reason has something to do with a "fresh start" or something... Meaning, he wanted to start things fresh in every aspect of the game, including its characters. Only thing that doesn't make a lick of sense with that mindset, is that the Japanese VA for Snake is staying the same... So it most likely IS just an elaborate troll. Hopefully... There just isn't anyone else who I can see playing Snake as well as Hayter...

crackforgangstas  +   952d ago
It was the video MGS fans deserve but no one needs right now. So we'll watch it. Because the video can take it. Because Hayter's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. The right Snake.

I want another game about Solid Snake, using the original voice. I don't care if it's another sequel or a bunch of prequels. My interest is in the soldier, who was cloned from big boss, and suffered.

I'm up for a PS4 version of the classic NES game titled Metal Gear. That's a start to win back my interest in the series. MGS V is acceptable but I still want that old snake moreso than a story about Big Boss. That is what I want.

I wasn't aware of the original. Nice info. In general a rerelease of the original story involving Solid Snakes infiltration of Outer Heaven. The beginning...

"The player's character is Solid Snake, a rookie member of the fictional special forces group FOXHOUND sent on his first mission. He is assisted via radio by his commanding officer Big Boss, who offers information about mission objectives and items; as well as a local Resistance movement composed of Schneider, who provides the locations of important items; Diane, who provides information on how to defeat enemy bosses; and Jennifer, who assists Snake as an inside agent. Among the prisoners Snake rescues includes Grey Fox (Gray Fox in the later versions), a FOXHOUND agent who was captured during a previous mission; Dr. Pettrovich (Dr. Pettrovich Madnar in later releases), the scientist who designed the Metal Gear weapon; and his daughter Ellen, who was kidnapped along with him."
a_bro  +   952d ago
But that's the point though, this game, and future games lead up to the events of the original metal gear game, hopefully we'll see a remake of it.
Eamon  +   952d ago
After watching the video, I have no idea how the author came to the conclusion that Hayter will return. Can someone explain?
Yo Mama  +   952d ago
I think it's going to be Michael Biehn. He's the one who we thought we were playing from the very beginning because his likeness was portrayed on the front of Metal Gear for NES.
He's also an actor and has voiced video games.

I stuck with it being him the entire time. If what Kojima said was true at all, then why hire the same actor for the Japanese one? Especially when Kojima constantly says he loves working with Hayter.
jc48573  +   952d ago
Kojima is also a good liar.

I really hope it's him!
selkan  +   952d ago
You guys got it all wrong... Title is misleading because when he mentions "Look Closer Detectives" he is clearly referring to 24's Jack Bauer character, so in other words its Kiefer Sutherland as "We all knew from the start"

He also did voice in computer animated movies such as "Monsters vs Aliens", "The Wild" and more :)

Still this doesn't mean that Kiefer is the new voice actor for snake... We'll have to just wait and see, although in the gameplay demonstration Kiefer's voice character revealed himself as Ishmael.
dirty_ripper  +   952d ago
Isn't Kiefer Sutherland a possibility?

The voice of your companion in the hospital scenes from the trailer is almost certainly him, he's been in a lot of Hollywood films and he's voiced two games (24 and COD: WAW)

EDIT: Just seen the above comment, haha.

Games have changed.

It's no longer about campaigns, stories, or authenticity.

It has become an endless series of proxy battles fought by allies and foes.

Online - and its consumption of time- has become a well-oiled machine.

Games have changed.

ID-tagged gamers carry ID-tagged accounts, use ID-tagged gear.

Season passes inside their games enhance and regulate their abilities.

Account control. Information control. Behavior control. Achievement control.

Everything is monitored and kept under control. Games have changed.

The age of gaming has become the age of control... All in the name of averting pirates from tools of mass distribution.

And he who controls access... controls its history.

Games have changed. When gaming is under total control... Account loss becomes routine.

What? You mean David Hayter not being in Metal Gear Solid 5 and all this hubbub around it and the attention that it has caused (not to mention the endless petitions) was all just a lie? Why, I am so shocked! However could this have happened?
greatcrusader44  +   952d ago
The guy said he's been in computer animated movies. Hayter has not been in any computer animated movies. It's like people are just hearing what they want yo hear and blocking out the rest.

I doubt that movie constitutes as a computer animated movie, it's mainly hand drawn with touch ups with a computer. When someone says computer animated, they think of something like a pixar movie with 3d models.

Not saying what you said isn't true, knowing Kojima, he might use that technicality as a way to trick people, but don't get your hopes up.
Fez  +   951d ago
I hate semantic arguments :P

Yeh, this looks like a fan-made video and yet I'm still hopeful that Hayter will be in the game! Unlikely though.
sklorbit  +   952d ago
if it is not hayter at this point, i am going to be mad. If they were going to drop a bomshell like they did, why fuck around with us and lead us to believe he may still come back?

I am going to play MGSV whether hayter is snake or not, but kojima is seriously playing with our emotions here.
Nate-Dog  +   952d ago
For attention, obviously. They've been doing it for years, what else do you expect at this point? I find it bizarre people are actually surprised by stuff like this any more.
It's not David Hayter. It's Richard Doyle.
cerpintaxt44  +   952d ago
i hope its hayter that voice is as iconic as it gets
