    Wow. I would really like to hear Kenyuu Horiuchi as Raiden for a long time and I wasn’t able to find any Youtube videos of MGS 4 with Japanese voice track that had cyborg-Raiden scenes.

    I hope they also add a Japanese voice track option in the game like Platinum Games did with Vanquish and Max Anarchy. 

    Of course the English voice acting would be good, I really like Quinton Flynn’s performance as Raiden in MGS 4 but I would like to have a Japanese voice track as well. I only heard Kenyuu Horiuchi’s voice as Irm in Super Robot Wars F and OG series and his voice is deep and manly so I’m curious to know how he sound as Raiden.

    Wonder if we would get dual track like other Platinum Games like Vanquish or it would be separate like the MGS series.. I’ve always preferred Horiuchi Kenyuu’s Raiden to Quinton Flynn’s, he just sounds much cooler :)

    Here’s the Jpn trailer BTW,

    A new boss? Or a new support character? Either way, I look forward to it. Also, 
    Horiuchi has probably one of the coolest Japanese voice I have heard. He made Raiden sound more adult than Flynn in MGS2, but I think Flynn makes Raiden sound more emotional.

    Seems like im the only one playing it in englishXD
    Wish I had the demo…. or better the game!

    Voiced by Balthier? This dog, I like him even more.

      Actually, it’s Sam who was voiced by Japanese Balthier. I’m not sure who exactly Sam is but according on what I read in Metal Gear wikia, he’s the rival of Raiden. Could be the guy Raiden was fighting on the train in the previous trailer.

        Aha, read that too fast.

    I still hope, pray and wish for Guy Savage. I don’t care how redundant that is or how low a chance he has, I wants what I wants.
