Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake Will Not Feature Newly Recorded Voice Acting

Konami has confirmed that the recently announced Metal Gear Solid Delta will re-use the voice clips from the original game.


Back when Konami first revealed the long-rumored Metal Gear Solid 3 remake to the world, the publisher said that the remake would "star the original voice characters." This statement is apparently quite literal, as Konami has now confirmed to The Verge that the remake will feature the same voice clips as the original game, with no changes or re-recordings.

While some might prefer the nostalgia of the original voice acting, many remakes of high-profile games have featured rewritten dialogue and re-recorded voice acting, including Final Fantasy VII Remake and Resident Evil 4. Given the vagueness of the original announcement, it was easy to take it either way. And judging by the online reaction to this, many fans also assumed that the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake would go the re-record route, but that's apparently not the case.

Now Playing: Why We're Worried About Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake

Officially titled Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, the MGS3 remake doesn't have a release date yet. However, we do know that the game is coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S, and that original series creator Hideo Kojima is not involved in the project's production in any capacity. On a recent episode of Spot On, GameSpot's Tamoor Hussain and Lucy James expressed concern about the project, especially given that MGS3 is widely considered one of the best games of its console generation, if not of all time.
