For many Metal Gear fans, David Hayter is Snake. He voiced the character in 1998's Metal Gear Solid and retained the role right up to the release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, at which point he was replaced by Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland. Hayter was justifiably bitter about being unseated from his most famous role, but it would seem that it's all water under the bridge now that Hideo Kojima - who had pushed for Hayter to be replaced for some time, according to reports - has parted company with Konami.

The Japanese publisher has just revealed that Hayter will reprise his role in Super Bomberman R, which is getting yet another helping of free DLC via its 2.1 update, making it one of the best-supported Switch titles we've seen (it launched alongside the console early last year).

Solid and Naked Snake both make the cut, as does part-robot crybaby killer Raiden. Konami uses the trailer to remind us that characters like the heroes from Contra and Xavier Woods (yes, the WWE guy) are also coming to the game. There's also an arena based on Mother Base from Metal Gear. This is fan service done right.

Hayter will also be lending his vocal talents to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which includes Snake (and his flat butt) as a playable character, later this year.
