MGSV: The Phantom Pain voice recording continues for Robin Atkin Downes (Miller)

Voice recording sessions for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain are still ongoing. Robin Atkin Downes, who plays the role of Kaz Miller in the game, is back in the recording studios at Kojima Productions Los Angeles for more voice recording.

A few days ago he posted a photo of the new Phantom Pain script he received:


“New script for TPP”

Except for the date not much can be seen. But today he posted a video giving a small glimpse into the recording sessions.

Also, Kojima himself tweeted a picture a few days ago of the game’s script, stating that he is still doing recording sessions. He also posted a picture of Satoshi Mikami, the Japanese voice actor for Ocelot.



“A handsome man, Satoshi Mikami (VO: Ocelot) & me, the sleepy head.”

    That’s awesome.

  • Tye

    Still recording voices? Guess the game definitely isn’t coming out anytime soon, lol…

    • Hm, not sure. Isn’t voice recording usually done late in the development? But yeah, it’s unlikely the game will be released this year.

      • CrazyGuy207

        Maybe he’s just there to do voices for online like an announcer in Call of Duty. I don’t actually remember a lot about MGO though so I’m not sure if they had announcers.

        • Janeo

          That would be very cool but my guess would be that miller has the most lines in the game and they still need to record all the things he goes on about during side missions.

        • Glasscut

          Lmao if mgo was remotely far into development don’t you think we would’ve seen pictures by now.. Also koji pro is still hiring for their LA studio.. So i doubt they are making any headway with MGO.. This game is looking like a late 2015 release, since kojima is still coming up with idea’s at the gym..

    • Yaro

      Probably codec related

  • Azteca

    At this rate, I think the date points to a release on the 14th of June, 3009. 🙁

  • Vonkronberg

    The date on the first picture is 06 september 2014. On another post Robin said: “Strange that is my birthdate too”
    Anyone guess what that date means?

    • CrazyGuy207

      Something to do with Federal Hall?

    • Probably the date of the new script.

      • Glasscut

        yes that’s the date of the script

        • Vonkronberg

          A printed script with a future date?
          The date that he’ll be at studio recording?

  • Damn, that means the game won’t be out quite a while longer.. I expected it, but damn.

  • Glasscut

    We are never going to play this game.. Seriously koji pro is going to bankrupt konami sheesh.. Also watch the game become very much monetized.. I can see it now.. <— this is my only complaint about koji pro they take their time sometime it feels like they're taking too long.. I thought he said at GDC 2013 that the fox engine will make development a lot easier for even past gen consoles..

    Also the PS4 makes development a lot easier as well.. Gosh i am going to grow gray hairs waiting on snake for TPP

    • But they needed to build the engine first. That took some time. Also, it’s a huge game, so it’s not surprising it takes some time. Just be patient, the game looks awesome. We know this studio will deliver, they always do.

      • Glasscut

        I agree, the anticipation is making feel like an ulcer is on it’s way… lol.. i hope the konami core download later on this year is at least the demo we watched.. That would be awesome..

      • They have been working on the FOX engine 6 months after MGS4 was completed on the Original Rising project… but that went south… (most of the developing of rising went straight to MGSv… even the producer from Original Rising is Producing MGSv as the newest trailer says)
        at least fox engine allows Konami to work on its yearly PES releases…
        Anyways I just want peace walker redone on FOX… just to have the “complete” MGSV experience… if a jungle map with enemie patrols and all can be created easily (as stated in kojimas secret conference in a university in 2012) why not take the simple game desing of MPW… a quick motion capture.. lip sync doesn’t need to be as realistic if it can be as good of MGS3 o maybe 4 that’s a nice way to actually introduce the ground zeroes characters to the main audience… (as much as I liked koji’s/Ashley comic style on the portable version I missed real time cutscenes on the console ports)

    • USPentudo .

      We all want the game right now!
      But is MGS and we both know the quality of the game and because of that sometime is needed.
      Its painful to wait, but remember: “The Best is Yet to Come”.
      More info about MGS V in Tokyo Game Show (Thu 18th Sep – Sun 21st Sep).

  • Glasscut

    Konami ate a 37 percent decline in game sales and TPP is not even close to going gold.. it’s almost four years.. after this week i might not even want to look at or look for anything about TPP.. Going to wait till next year all this teasing is getting annoying for something that’s not even close to release.. I never preorder a game until two months before it’s release date..

    • BerserkerVTR

      They took some time to create the engine, and about all the tease, it’s cool when they show us stuff, i can’t complain about it. Better than having nothing shown to us, and the game being made in complete dark.

    • LOL

      Remember Fox Engine, they had to create that. They did a fantastic job

  • PrinceHeir

    Too many legends 🙂

    From Right to Left

    Takaya Hashi(Skull Face), Kojima(Kami!), Tomokazu Sugita(Miller), Akio Otsuka(Snake of course!), Satoshi Mikami(Ocelot)

    Damn Sugita is rocking that Diamond Dogs jacket and Otsuka is wearing the trio Snake(Liquid,Solid,Big Boss!)

    I don’t see Kikuko Inoue(Chico) as well as Yumi Kikuchi(Strangelove is indeed confirmed to be returning from last year’s podcast) :

    Shame i don’t see Banjo Ginga(Old Ocelot), guess he was replace as well huh?

    Awesome!! Glad the game is following along nicely, just finished Ground Zeroes story once again for a 3rd time. I really can’t wait for this game!

    • BerserkerVTR

      Hope it’s not a dumb question:
      Who are the guys closer to Kojima? (The one in jacket, and the far left in the pic)

      • Glasscut

        The one in the jacket is the japanese kaz or rather miller the one on the right in the japanese snake and i think the one left of kojima is code talker well lol that’s what he looks like

      • PrinceHeir

        Jacket is Tomokazu Sugita who is Miller in Japanese and a well known Seiyuu in Japan(currently has the most followers on twitter)

        Far left is Takaya Hashi, voice of Skull Face.

  • Joseph

    Had to do it…

    • BigBoss_88

      Please doc…I can’t wait that long! Gimme some Phantom Pain now.

  • César H. Sandoval

    Makes sense, since Miller talks like a 100 times more than Snake does in MGSV

  • CrazyGuy207

    I know Robin was on a Kojima station episode, has Keifer?

    • Anonymous GP Legend

      Cough up another 300 grand and it might happen.

      • CrazyGuy207

        Wouldn’t he want to do it out of the kindness of his heart? 🙂

  • Maynard

    still Miss David Hayter T_T

    but recently he just say No role in this game

    • Venom Snake

      He said “I am not in Metal Gear V” not “I am not in Metal Gear SOLID V”

      He is avoiding the Truth, don’t you get it?

      He is Playing us “Like a Damn Fiddle”

  • Ken Shiro

    I know many of you know might now agree with me, but I am not happy with these types of news to be honest. I was actually hoping they would be done with recording by now. Hopefully these are just re-records of already recorded lines or something.

  • PrinceHeir

    It seems Kojima has visited Platinum Games over dinner 🙂

    Please Metal Gear Rising 2!! I do hope he also visits Suda51 and 5pb so they can make Snatcher x Policenauts!!

    • Invader_skoodge

      Oh man, I hope they don’t pull a Metal Gear Solid: Rising and hand over the game to Platinum.

  • Decker

    I dont know why do this…Look this guys:

    • LOL

      I rented the game for 2 days bc I thought it was going to be “short” but boy was I wrong. I need to buy this game. There are many more missions with more info

    • Janeo

      That was pretty cool but I think it’s far more impressive to get an s rank without using reflex. I used reflex for my first play through of all the missions then I turned it off moved up to hard and s ranked most of the missions I think it’s far more satisfying getting an s rank without reflex.

    • Invader_skoodge

      You know, looking back at the TPP Demo when mother base was being attacked, you see Big Boss get in the chopper. I’m guessing that the ‘on-rails’ side mission to rescue Kojima in Ground Zeroes is how defending Mother Base is going to play. But instead of jeeps, you’re shooting down speedboats and other choppers. Maybe?

  • Schmojima

    I find the expression “new script for TPP” kinda disturbing… and why has it a future date on it? (over 3 months to go)… I’m getting to old for this shit. O_Q

  • ObsessedGeorge

    It looks like trophies can make a person buy a game multiple times!

    • Invader_skoodge

      I find trophies to be a nice incentive to go back and play games that I’ve played through already. But this is on another level, borderline obsessive, aaaand I lack the disposable income to buy something more than once. :’ (

      • ObsessedGeorge

        Totally agree. It’s like you can read my mind! That’s exactly what I would’ve said.
