Wondering Why David Hayter Isn't In 'Metal Gear Solid V?' Kojima Didn't Invite Him Back

31 March 2013 2:45 PM, PDT | MTV Multiplayer | See recent MTV Multiplayer news »

“What we’re trying to accomplish is [to] recreate the Metal Gear series. It’s a new type of Metal Gear game and we wanted to have this reflected in the voice actor as well.”

That was "Metal Gear" series director Hideo Kojima addressing why actor/screenwriter David Hatyer wasn't invited back to voice Big Boss in "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain," a move that's sure the rankle some fans out their who've grown attached to his gravelly voiced performances as Snake through three console generations of games.

Fans learned that Hayter wouldn't be voicing Big Boss when the English language trailer for "The Phantom Pain" made its debut this week. Kojima confirmed that he and Kojima Productions wanted to go in what they'd call in the business "a different direction" this time out, although at this time he wouldn't divulge the name of the actor voicing the character in the game. »

Baka & Test: Summon The Beasts Season 2 DVD Review

11 February 2013 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Shin Oonuma

Starring: Hiro Shimono, Alexis Tipton, Hitomi Harada, Josh Grelle, Akio Ohtsuka, Anthony Bowling, Avana Taketatsu, Brina Palencia Emiri Kato,

 Running Time: 325 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Episode 13 commentary, textless opening & closing, music videos, Baka Test animated shorts, trailers

Baka & Test: Summon The Beasts sees a group of high school kids in a world where they are able to summon little avatars of themselves. These avatars are used to battle and settle disputes, and their strength is surmised by scores which represent how well they do in certain classes. But that in no way captures the show’s true essence. It is really just used as a fun little gimmick which is sometimes employed in order to add a bit of spice to the show. This is really a school based sitcom all about growing up.

If you’re arriving to the show for the first time, you may be »
