Kojima: I can't say if Solid Snake will be in MGSV

Kojima does not want to confirm whether or not Solid Snake will make an appearance in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

He's obviously in the game.
DARK WITNESS  +   390d ago
he is obviously not in the game because he wants to you think he will be in the game by suggesting that he wont be in the game!

wait, maybe he will be in the game because he knows that by saying he wont be in the game, people will think that he wont really be in the game because they assume that he is going to think that people will think that he will be in the game.

Wait.....what, ahhh... no, hummm

well if liquid snake (eli) is going to be in the game i can't see why not.
Mr_Nuts  +   391d ago
Well if he isn't and Hayter isn't voicing him or even in the game then you have officialy been an arsehole towards Hayter.

Yeah just dump the guy who's been Snake for 15 years for a Hollywood actor who is doing a horrible job voicing him. It's like Jack Bauer is in the game, not Snake.

Time will tell I suppose.

You can't dump someone who wasn't hired for a specific project.

Their new recording techniques for the cutscenes require someone who can act. David Hayter isn't a good actor.
Mr_Nuts  +   391d ago
But they still could of hired a Japanese motion cap actor instead. It's not like Kojima was forced to get Sutherland.

Total BS answer..... Jack, your fired ( Donald Trump voice ).

... mocap has been used for MGS games since MGS2
Dead_Cell  +   390d ago
What's with all the demand for Japanese casting? It's a western-orientated game and to be honest, ninety percent of anything portrayed seriously in either gaming or movies by Japanese developers is entirely awful.
MrSwankSinatra  +   391d ago
if its adult snake, he better be voiced by david hayter or else that would be the biggest slight to any MGS fan. big boss not being voiced by david hayter i have no issue but solid snake is a different story.
Mr_Nuts  +   391d ago
Big Boss should of been voiced by Richard Doyle and the motion captured stuff should of been done by a new Japanese voice actor.

Theres more western fans who like Hayter then Japanese fans who like the Japanese actor....you wouldn't of gotten a big backlash doing this like they did with replacing Hayter.
gamepard  +   391d ago
totally agreed about the japanese actor ...Snake (any snake)should be motion captured by a japanese actor as they are far better in expressions/ voice acting combination than the their western colleagues

At first I was mad about Matter not voicing Big Boss but after watching the trailer I realized his voiced would not have fit the character in this game. In MGS 5 big boss is a old and pretty husky. He looks nothing like he did in Snake Eater.
Shuyin  +   391d ago
I don't know why every one disagrees with you.

I replayed PW just yesterday and it made me realize how much I luv Hayter's voice acting but I agree with you. He wouldn't have been able to conduct such good mo-cap and serious, dark voice acting for MGSV.

Actually I'm glad he did now. Though, that only goes for Big Boss.

Solid Snake will always be Hayter. The day Kojima decides to dump Hayter for another VA to voice Solid, is the day I stop looking at him as the godfather of gaming.

I want to play as a young Solid Snake just one more time please!
braydox21  +   389d ago
you might get to play as a young liquid
coolasj  +   391d ago
I'm going to hold onto my theory that says MGS 5 will end in a Metal Gear 1 reboot until someone gets %100 on the game.
Mr_Nuts  +   391d ago
I wouldn't mind that...sort of like a retelling but change things up so future games will be differn't. It means they could get rid of the thing which makes Snake age fast and they could get rid of Raiden for the new MGS2. They could kill Liquid off and Solidus could get away instead....that would change a lot of stuff.
Pillsbury1  +   391d ago
You mean changing the whole canon? NEVER.
Mr_Nuts  +   391d ago
Good god, when did I say that, of course not

It wouldn't be changing the story because the main story (the main series) would have already have been completed

You would keep everything BEFORE MGS1 the same but change certain aspects of the first game to change the outcome of the future games.

You wouldn't change the main story because this would basicaly be an alternative timeline.

I mean after MGSV theres no where else for Kojima to go, this game was pushing it for starters, doing a semi reboot/retelling would allow him to do things differnt and tell differnt stories while keeping the characters we all love around.

Unless you want him to reboot it and tell a new story without Snake or any of the characters we've come to know and love.

You obviously don't know what a reboot is. By rebbot he means an HD version, as in when a game is remade graphics wise, and the source material remains untouched. Sure there might be a couple hidden easter eggs and features, but the story of the game would never be altered.So you're saying that Kojima would continue the story of big boss, which has been established to be part of the story of the other games in the MGS saga, only to change it at the end so everything else in the story afterwards changes? No, that's not going to happen. We already knows what happens to Liquid and Solidus after MGS V, because we already witnessed it years ago. If they reboot it, as you want them too, they would probably tell a new story with some new characters in the same universe. Kojima will never change the main story of the MGS games because they've already been established as series lore, even games like MGS 1,2, and 4, for future games. MGS V isn't meant to change the series, but rather bring it full circle. This will be the game that will help us explain the series from MG1 onwards.

Thats a remake man, not a reboot

A reboot is where you start from scratch but what I said was a semi-reboot.
Maninja  +   391d ago
What coolasj was talking about is a remake. Kojima said he wanted someone to remake MG 1, not reboot it so nothing is gonna change story wise
braydox21  +   389d ago
snake what have you done youv'e created a time paradox
BABY-JEDI  +   391d ago
What does he mean when he says he can't say??? Hayter,,,, I mean S N A K E .....
gamepard  +   391d ago
instant confirmation that he will be in....why he cannot tell ???because he is in...otherwise Kojima would simply exclude the possibility that he is in

I would totally laugh if 12yr old Solid Snake was voiced by David Hayter.
Snookies12  +   391d ago
Lol, I pictured that in my mind... Amazing mental image/audio.
VonBraunschweigg  +   391d ago
Any Snake will do, doesn't have to be Solid. Just a Snake so we can sneak.
Belking  +   391d ago
As long as I can play this on my xbox-one, i'm good. Thanks Kojima.
Pillsbury1  +   391d ago
I have a strong feeling the end of mgs5 will surprise us all. I cannot f'ing wait to play kojimas next masterpiece.

Sigh  +   391d ago
ya exactly how I feel. I think that's why Kojima wanted a new voice actor for Big Boss, to differentiate from both Snakes-- the best 2 Snakes of ALL TIME! Lol. Cause after MGSV, it should be leading up to the point where Big Boss and Solid Snake run into each other right? Then comes the Metal Gear 1/2 remakes. There's no way David Hayter's gonna be gone. No way. Him and Kojima are playing mind games.
Maninja  +   391d ago
What if Kojima wants Metal Gear 1 to be remade so he can include it at the end of MGS V, but allowing us to play certain parts of the game from big boss's point of view. That would really make the game bring the series full circle
Summons75  +   391d ago
Will Solid Snake be replaced? just kidding. It's fine if you don't tell us who is in the game. The more kept secret the more we can enjoy and be surprised by when we play the game for the first time.
Kte  +   391d ago
Of course solid snake won't be in it. CAUSE ITS NOT DH...just saying
AnimeAvenger  +   391d ago
Ok so he probably will be in.
