“Metal Gear Solid” creator Hideo Kojima said Thursday the “24” star will play protagonist Snake in the next installment of the stealth video game series.
The character has been portrayed in the “Metal Gear Solid” games by voice actor David Hayte since the original was released in 1998.
Kojima said because “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” takes place in 1984, it required an actor who could convey the facial and vocal qualities of a 49-year-old version of the super-soldier.
“We’re taking on some very heavy subjects, such as race and revenge,” Kojima said Thursday in an online video streamed by “Metal Gear Solid” publisher Konami, ahead of next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
“I wanted Snake to have a more subdued performance, expressed through subtle facial movements and tone of voice rather than words,” Kojima said.
The new CYBORG NINJA FIGURE from the Play Arts KAI Series is a fantastic combination of both Cyborg and Ninja–and does a pretty solid job of bringing to your collection the sheer awesomeness that is the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Imported from Japan, this Square Enix MGS figure stands about 10” tall and features some absolutely amazing attention to detail, more points of articulation and additional parts. Honestly, the Play Arts series are the ones you want to snag if you’re looking for a figure that’ll look as good in another decade as it does now. Collectors, this is the one.
For MGS3 fans, this is a must-have, not just because this is the only figure featuring Snake in his normal Tiger Camo, but because of the level of detail it possesses. If you’re wondering, the figure is not poseable and is a little unsteady standing on its own. Yet, I completely love it for how well it’s sculpted and the design of the costume. Snake’s outfit is fully based on actually military gear from the cold war era, right down to his lash unit throat mics and authentic pilot’s dagger. If you loved Snake Eater, this is a very, very cool piece. Enjoy!!
