Kiefer Sutherland says he contributed to unannounced Mortal Kombat game

First Snake, now Scorpion? Sub-Zero?

by

24 star Kiefer Sutherland has been working on his role as Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V for over a year, but apparently that’s not the only video game he’s been involved with recently.

“I did Mortal Kombat, and that’s such a huge game, but it’s not like [Metal Gear Solid 5],” Sutherland told IGN in an interview. Sutherland did not say what his role is in the game.

Developer NetherRealm’s last fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us, was released in 2013. Its last Mortal Kombat game was the series reboot released in 2011. The game Sutherland said he worked on might be the one producer of the Mortal Kombat Legacy web series Lance Sloane hinted at during San Diego Comic Con 2013. Sloane said he was working out the best time to launch a new Mortal Kombat movie, and wanted to "sync" it with the release of a new, currently unannounced game.

You'll be able to hear Sutherland's voice in the controversial prequel Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and then later in the main game, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Sutherland takes over the role of Snake from David Hayter, who had portrayed the character in previous games.

Loooove MK Deception from the PS2/Xbox/GameCube era. I was so surprised by how deep the Konquest mode is, and the story was fairly good. You can tell that the fighting genre wasn't as popular as it was in the 90's as MK Deception was kind of overlooked. I mean, why the hell were people so surprise by the amount of content that game has?


Hopefully in the next MK game the campaign will play similar to the Konquest mode from Deception.

David Hayter as Snake has always been epic but I'm sure Kiefer Sutherland can do an excellent job, as long as it feels like snake and sound near what snake should sound like I'll be stoked cause SNAKE is the man!!!!!! Of course Kiefer Sutherland is pretty damn cool too lol

He's a great actor. The Lost Boys, Young Guns 1 and 2, 24. The man has had an awesome career.

So this guy does voices for videogames and he doesn't  know what game? There's no Mortal Kombat, the last one was 3 years ago.

maybe this is a sign that we will get an update soon about the movie since kevin tanchareon (director) stepped away from the project and there hasn't been any news about a replacement or if production officially began.

Yes, its about time we heard some news about the new MK game! The last one was amaze balls! Hopefully we'll get it this year! i'm still riding the old one HARD. I hope we get characters (ashrah, boraicho, tanya), additional moves and fatalities, new outfits and BRUTALITY BITCH!!!!!!! BRING THAT BACK!!! AAARGH. lol i'm too excited smh.


Finally it would be nice if they hid the commands of some moves/fatalities just like old times. Players didn't really appreciate/memorize them in the last one since it was so easily available. Wheeeww. There is so much i wanna say! I'm a massive MK fan played absolutely every single game right from ending man to game boy to sega to ps1 etc etc etc. Happy sunday loves! peace

If Kiefer is voicing any MK character, it has to be Raiden.

I always hated that Hayter voiced Big Boss. Fan service if I've ever seen it.

David Hayter will always be Snake to me.  Just like how Kevin Conroy will always be Batman, and Christopher Daniel Barnes will always be Spider-man (to me).


That said, as long as Sutherland sounds like Snake, then I have no real problems with this.

@chev7781 Yeah for me it is my favorite MK, plus MK chess is also another fun thing it has. Sholin Monks would be my 2nd favorite from the MK series.

@grbolivar I guess you haven't seen the news about voice actors getting anxious over excited fans. It's just another paycheck for most actors who jump from project to project.

@Gegglington Nice Lost Boys reference, but since this is about games we could call this The Lost Voice (Acting).
