Jay Tavare has posted a development update on the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.” According to a report from Metal Gear Informer on Jan. 26, the voice actor stated that having knowledge in the Athabskan language helped prepare him for the role of Code Talker. The character apparently has a “complex Navajo dialog” in the fifth main installment of the “Metal Gear Solid” series. He believed that he was able to perform his role with “justice.”
Jay Tavare went on to mention that his recording process is still not finished as more work is expected to be done in 2014. You can check out a set of “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” screens in the slideshow on the left side of this article and his comments below:
A first look at “Code Talker” the character I voice in the upcoming super game Metal Gear Solid V. Phantom Pain. Knowing how to speak some Athabskan did help in learning the complex Navajo dialog I had so far. Thanks to my Elders I know I did it justice. We are not done yet so this year is more work. :)))
The sequel, which is set after the events of “Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater” and “Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker,” features a mix of returning characters along with new individuals such as the aforementioned Code Talker.
Although “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” currently does not have a release date, Konami Digital Entertainment is releasing a prologue called “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” on March 18th in the North American region. Both titles are heading to the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
