In the latest podcast from Kojima Productions, producer Ryan Payton revealed that Metal Gear Solid 4 will not have voice over tracks from other languages. So Americans and Europeans can’t play the game in Japanese.
“Unfortunately because of disc space, we don’t have the space to include other languages, other voice over files for the respective versions. So the Japanese version’s not gonna have English VO, and the North American and European versions won’t have Japanese VO.”
He does however ensure that the voice over work in MGS4 is the best the series has ever seen.
