Hear Kiefer Sutherland as Snake in this new MGSV trailer


Konami has finally unleashed a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain / Ground Zeroes trailer that shows off Kiefer Sutherland’s portrayal of Snake/Big Boss, and it’s interesting to say the least.

The new trailer features the same familiar footage we’ve seen last year, albeit with English voice acting. I can see Sutherland’s portrayal of Snake causing a bit of consternation among some fans of the series. I know I, personally felt a little weird hearing his decidedly less gravelly voice, and the delivery of “kept you waiting, huh?” sounded more than a little awkward. But I’ll let that slide: it’s a pretty corny line anyway.

Sutherland was revealed as the replacement role of Snake/Big Boss back in June, months after original Snake voice actor David Hayter revealed that he would not be reprising the role.

You may also notice that the opening credits list Otacon’s voice actor, Christopher Randolph, who will no doubt serve as the voice of Emmerich, Otacon’s father.

So enough of my rambling, check out the English trailer after the break, and feel free to compare it to Akio Otsuka’s performance in the Japanese version. And as a bonus, there’s gameplay footage in Japanese that shows off some of the game’s new elements.
