Hayter will once again reprise his legendary role as Snake, the main character in the Metal Gear Solid series. In addition to lending his voice for characters on numerous projects, he is also known as a successful screenwriter, penning such box office successes as X-Men, X-Men 2 and The Scorpion King.
"Snake is one of the most dynamic characters in video game history," says David Hayter. "I've always enjoyed developing characters and creatively exploring their personalities in my screenplays. Working with Kojima to bring this ultra-cool character to life has been a truly rewarding professional experience and certainly one of the top roles I've ever done."
"Instead of focusing on the time period in which the game takes place, I have created a soundtrack that is respectful of the pre-existing MGS taste," says Harry Gregson-Williams. "The music enhances each of the various layers of the game and augments the overall storyline. It has been a pleasure working with Hideo Kojima as he truly understands the importance music plays in setting the tone for any story."
Also working closely with Kojima is Kyle Cooper, the renowned director/producer who has designed the lead-ins to 150 features that have consistently stunned and entertained audiences. He is best known for creating such memorable intro sequences for movies including Seven, Spider-Man, and Mission Impossible. For MGS3, Kojima and Cooper have collaborated on creating the first-ever interactive opening title sequence for a videogame, giving players unprecedented control of their gaming experience. The dynamic opening, an ode to the popular spy movies of the 1960's, sets the stage for the highly engaging stealth action that follows.
"Working with Kojima on MGS3 has given me the rare opportunity to push the boundaries of the lead-ins I traditionally create for television and movies, resulting in a new style of visual storytelling that cannot be re-created on the silver screen," says Kyle Cooper. "Unlike those for feature films or TV shows, the intro sequence to MGS3 is fully interactive and allows players to be part of the experience, not just a spectator."
Due out on November 17th, 2004 exclusively for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater will thrust players into the cold war era, a time period rife with political turmoil. Stepping into the role of Snake, players will embark on a dangerous solo mission that will carry them through swampy jungles, arid deserts and other daunting environments on a quest to save the world from nuclear annihilation.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is rated "M" for mature by the ESRB.
