The original voice of Solid Snake, David Hayter, has returned to his old role for a video which celebrates Metal Gear’s 31st anniversary and provides an update on the proposed Metal Gear movie.
In the video below, made by Jordan Vogt-Roberts who will direct the Metal Gear movie — in the style of a Metal Gear codec — Solid Snake rails against the state of modern movies, before Revolver Ocelot has a word or two. Unfortunately, the latter reveals that on the movie front, there is currently no news.
Vogt-Roberts made and tweeted another codec-style video featuring Colonel Campbell, which you can see below – all as part of a celebration of Metal Gear’s 31st anniversary, in which he will be unveiling 31 items of Metal Gear artwork over 31 days.
Vogt-Roberts has reassured Metal Gear fans that his priority is to bring Hideo Kojima’s vision for the franchise to the big screen. He told Eurogamer: “I will always be making this movie to interpret and service the world that Kojima made. That’s why all of us care about the words Metal Gear Solid. Regardless of their split – Kojima and I have become friends and colleagues, and it’s important to me to shepherd something that he’d be proud of. Konami’s made incredible games, but Metal Gear – they supported him in making these games early on, but it’s Kojima’s voice and the voice of his colleagues and artists and designers, and I’ll always be trying to service that.”
