David Hayter Is Voicing Snake For His Return In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

This morning we learned Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will include every fighter that has ever appeared in the Smash Bros. series, and that includes Solid Snake. We spoke with senior product marketing manager for Nintendo America Bill Trinen and localization manager Nate Bihldorff about the series and I was able to get in a few questions about Solid Snake's return. We still have a few questions about his return but the pair did answer at least one big question:

Who is voicing Snake?

Bihldorff: David Hayter.

Has Snake’s dialogue been re-recorded? Or is the audio pulled from Brawl?

Bihldorff: I don’t have details on that. But, David Hayter will be the voice.

Does he comment on other fighters like he did in Brawl? Like where he would talk about eating Yoshi?

Trinen: [Laughs] I forgot about those.

Nate: I should remember those, because I was at those recording sessions and that was a lot of recording.

Were you at those?

Bihldorff: Yeah.

Trinen: When I said we have worked on Smash together for a long time, we actually have [laughs].

Bihldorff: Other than that, we don’t have any other details.

As an additional confirmation, Hayter confirmed his involvement in the game
