David Hayter is once again lending his gravely tones to Solid Snake in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo has confirmed to IGN.

Hayter also confirmed the news on Twitter, although admittedly his response made us wonder if he was just having a laugh.

Snake is making a comeback to the epic crossover fighting game later this year, which marks the Metal Gear Solid' hero's first appearance in the franchise since 2008.

What isn't known, however, is if Hayter recorded any new dialogue for the part or if the game will simply use his lines from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. 

Hayter is synonymous with the character of Snake, having voiced him since 1998's Metal Gear Solid and its various sequels. He also played Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, but was replaced by Kiefer Sutherland for Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.

His latest stint as the stealthy super soldier was in a commercial for Ford.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is due out for Switch on December 7.
