Some little tidbits you may be interested in.
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain was one of the notable absentees during last week’s Gamescom in Cologne. However, we have some brand new details regarding Hideo Kojima’s latest entry in the critically acclaimed series.
First of all, all those crazy and oftentimes bizarre jokes will be returning to Metal Gear Solid 5. Hideo Kojima confirmed this on twitter, stating, “Since the theme of my next project is ‘Revenge’ I’ve tried to stay serious but I couldn’t help including stupid jokes again.”
Humor and jokes are a big part of the franchise and Kojima believes that it is the essence of the series. “My team members positively accepted & said that’s the essence of MGS but I’d better keep my mouth shot to Yoji in case he resists,” he stated in another tweet.
So expect a lot of jokes and crazy cross references in Metal Gear Solid 5. Moving ahead, we have some new details on ‘Code Talker’. Nnot much is known about this character apart from the fact that he is being voiced by Jay Tavare, popular for his role of Vega in the Street Fighter movie.
But recently, a fan asked Tavare on his Facebook page about the progress of Metal Gear Solid 5, to which he replied: “We are still working on the game. In fact I am back in the studio next month but almost there. Code Talker is an awesome character, he speaks Navajo and English and the challenge for me was to get the Dine language correct and I had to get help from my Navajo Elders.”
For those who are unaware of the Navajo language, it is spoken in the southwestern United States and Dine is another word for the Navajo people. So most likely, the Code Talker hails from that region. His reply also indicates that the voice over recording for MGS5 is still under progress.
