Kept you waiting, huh?
One of the biggest reveals for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate today was that Snake, from the Metal Gear Solid series, will be returning to the franchise’s roster after a ten year absence. Snake was originally in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but he did not return in 2014’s Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
So- this new game. It comes out after The Phantom Pain launched, and featured iconic voice actor, who had voiced Snake in all incarnations until then, including in Brawl, with Keifer Sutherland. So who will be playing Snake this time around?
There’s good news here for Snake fans who were dissatisfied with Sutherland’s performance in The Phantom Pain– it will be David Hayter reprising his role as Snake in the new Smash Bros. game. Nintendo confirmed this in an interview with Game Informer, and Hayter himself confirmed that on Twitter shortly afterwards.
I guess he kept fans waiting, huh? Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches December 4 this year, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
