David Hayter returns to Metal Gear Solid series in new retrospective

By FileTrekker a month ago, last updated a month ago

David Hayter, the definitive voice of Solid Snake in the western releases of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, is finally making is return to the series after more than thirteen years away, with Konami working with him on the new Metal Gear Solid Legacy series.

While this isn't a new video game collaboration, it is a sign that things have softened between Konami and Hayter, who was famously replaced by Hideo Kojima with actor Kifer Sutherland in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

It's long been rumoured that Kojima wasn't a fan of Hayter's performance as Snake, however, Hideo Kojima controversially parted ways with Konami some time ago. Hayter first played Solid Snake in the 1998 PlayStation 1 game, Metal Gear Solid,  and voiced the character, as well as Big Boss, in Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and 4.

Hayter returns in the above trailer, promoting a series of retrospective videos known as Metal Gear Solid Legacy. The trailer refers to the series as "a franchise that reshaped the gaming world," which I'm very much inclined to agree with. I'm pretty excited to give this a watch. Details are sparse, but Hayter will host the series. 

The series coincides with the recent release of the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol 1, which includes a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3, along with emulated versions of MGS1, MGS2, and, in some editions the classic Metal Gear games.
