David Hayter returns as the voice of Solid Snake (don't get too excited though).

Jordan Vogt-Roberts has already stated before that he is fully committed to stay true to the vision of Kojima in adapting the Metal Gear Solid games into films. If you weren’t convinced about that, then perhaps the new video produced by him with the help of voice actor David Hayter, the instantly recognizable voice of Solid Snake (and Big Boss, up until Metal Gear Solid 5) will change your mind.

The short video, which Vogt-Roberts shared through a tweet, is a throwback to the old Metal Gear Solid games and was made to celebrate the franchise’s 31st Anniversary, which Vogt-Roberts has been doing over Twitter continuously over the past month or so. While it starts off making fun of how many questions the confused-sounding Hayter had to ask in those games, something that has become a bit of a meme at this point, it soon develops into a touching tribute to the series’ director Hideo Kojima and also for the loyal fans.

There’s also a brilliant reference to the famous “War has changed” monologue from Guns of the Patriots, with a bit about how “movies… have changed” and have become “an endless series of proxy films created by mercenaries or machines.” The short video then ends with Revolver Ocelot saying, in his own characteristic fashion, that there’s no new information regarding the status of the film, while also providing assurance that they are trying to preserve everything that fans love about the franchise.

You can check out the video and Vogt-Roberts’ tweet below. The man’s a lifelong Kojima and Metal Gear fan, and it becomes clearer and clearer with every next thing he says and does.
