We know he's lending his voice for the game. Nobody can deny that, but in what capacity is he involved with the game?
- It seems strange to me that he would appear in Raiden's story progression if he wasn't playable.
- An alternate costume doesn't exactly make sense.
- We already know that Sam is Raiden's minion.
- He is not apart of Raiden's moveset.
I don't think he'll be apart of any of these:
Any thoughts? Speculation?
No he is most likely in the story. Why wouldn't he be
Because they wouldn't pull in David Hayter for mo-cap and voice acting just for a (less than) bit role in a very short campaign and then not even use him as a minion (no less a fighter).
I'm guessing Konami pulled a "sucker punch cole" on superbot here. (not blasting raiden here, I actually really like him, but...) Konami probably said "You want snake, you gotta put in Raiden." Since snake is a huge PS all-star, I don't think super-bot would pass up the offer. (snake is interchangable with big boss)
