With the announcement of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the return of every playable character the series has ever had, Solid Snake is poised to make his glorious return. A question some of us immediately had though was who would voice the iconic soldier? It would be a stretch to try and get Kiefer Sutherland back after yelling “rocket punch” for Metal Gear Solid V.

Well, in an interview with Game Informer, senior product marketing manager Bill Trinen and localization manager Nate Bihldorff shed some light on that question. David Hayter will be reclaiming the voice that was taken from him in the latest numbered iteration of the series. Whether new lines were recorded or not is unclear, but it would be fun to hear new lines of dialogue of him taunting characters like he did in his previous appearance.
