Death Stranding is sure to rule the charts come November, as it sees the return of Hideo Kojima along with the brand of hype and mystery only he can generate. While a lot of focus has been on the big Hollywood names he’s managed to wrangle into the game, there’s some familiar faces and voices coming for those playing in Japanese.

In a large preview panel for the game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Kojima brought up many of the Japanese voice actors for a breakdown of their characters. If you’re familiar with the Japanese dubs of the Metal Gear Solid games, you’ll hear a lot of familiar voices here. They talk about their influences, and how they tackled the bizarre characters and layered worlds Kojima created with the game. Unfortunately, there isn’t an English subtitled version of the video, which is below, but thankfully the fine folks at DualShockers translated and transcribed the talk, which you can check out here if you don’t happen to know Japanese.

Death Stranding releases November 8th exclusively on PlayStation 4. For an idea of what the game’s story is like (sorta), you can see the Briefing trailer through here. For an overview of the gameplay you can expect to see (…sorta), there’s also something for you.
