The voice of Solid Snake

Metal Gear Solid fans will no doubt be pleased to hear that David Hayter will once again be providing Solid Snake's dulcet tones, brought on board for PS3's Metal Gear Solid 4.

Voicing the aging and exhausted hero in the sequel, Hayter will be following a script penned by Hideo Kojima and Shuyo Murata.

Konami has also announced that voice actors Quinton Flynn, Paul Eiding and Christopher Randolph are returning, lending their vocal talents to characters Raiden, Roy Campbell and Hal 'Otacon' Emmerich, respectively.

And completing the reforming of the 'Metal Gear Solid Family Voice' is Kris Zimmerman, who is to direct the voice acting sessions for the game.

"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 David Hayter.

"I'm so proud and grateful to have been involved with Mr. Kojima on this legendary video game series for nearly a decade. This game is going to plunge players into the ultimate Metal Gear Solid experience. And personally, I can't wait to play it."
