Code Talker head sculpt returns in Japanese voice recording session

On his Japanese Twitter, Kojima has shared a couple of photos of a recording session. On the pictures, we can see the realistic head sculpt of MGSV: TPP’s character Code Talker that was used for 3D scanning, and Code Talker’s Japanese voice actor Osamu Saka.



“What the…?”


“Does Code Talker join?”

    The photo that shows Code Talker from the sideways, is amazingly realistic! This character has me intrigued.

    Colonel Sanders-san!

  • PrinceHeir

    I wonder what Code Talker’s role really is? I hope we could recruit him or something 😀

    Badass as always!

    • BigBoss_88

      Yeah I agree :D, nice poses! I wonder who will voice him in english, also can’t wait to see either who he is or what his role really is :).
      I love reading fans theories about characters in MGSV.

      1. Some think he’s a native american who used to be a “code talker” during WW2, you know those guys whose code language couldn’t be decrypted.

      2. Code Talker is Boss’ father.

      3. He’s some ancient guy who has the ability to foretell Big Boss of his dark future. Like Vulcan Raven did to Solid Snake in MGS1, telling of his past etc to Solid.

      4. He’s Zero…

      5. “Code Talker = One of the original Wisemen”
      Code Talker, born sometime during the late 19th Century, was an elderly man who Big Boss encountered during the 1980s.
      Code Talker features in the E3 2013 trailer for The Phantom Pain, with the subtext of “A Wise Man denied his homeland.”

      The original Wisemen’s Committee was a secret group of the most
      wealthy and powerful minds from the United States, Russia (Soviet Union
      at the time) and China who formed the Philosophers after the first World

      • In the English version, Code Talker is voiced by Jay Tavare:

        And it’s pretty much certain your first option is true, since the actor said he had to talk in the Navajo language for the role.

        • BigBoss_88

          Oh okey ;D, thanks Nyxus! That clears some questions spinning around my head lol, haven’t seen this article before because it was so old :).

          P.S. yes the first option seems most likely to be true now lol :D.

      • PrinceHeir

        Option 1 and 4 are more likely the scenario.

        Option 4 since we haven’t heard from Zero after MGS3(only hints on Peace Walker)

        I wouldn’t be surprised if he tricks Big Boss into thinking he needed to do something, but he’s actually fallen for his grand scheme of things.

        Of course Ocelot would probably notice this for sure. So hopefully he has your back ^^

        • The guy who drowned quiet

          wtf?its ,maybe 1 2 and 5 as the boss was part of the philosophers or something like cant be 4.only a mentally mad person can say that.

          • PrinceHeir

            Are you clueless?

            That’s why it will be unexpected since no one’s gonna expect that. It’s actually smart if they pull that off since people like you will be surprise as hell if that happened.

        • BigBoss_88

          Yeah, well for now I’m quite certain part of the option 1 is true at least :). I’m not really going to start guessing too much, because it will give me permanent brain damage lol, but who knows maybe CT could even be Chico lol.

          How?…well don’t ask me xD! Never know what happens or who somebody is in Kojima game, is all I’m saying :O.

        • WhatTheJuicay

          how could he possibly be Zero though? he looks as old as Zero from MGS4.. unless he’s immortal.

          • PrinceHeir

            You know they were sculpting the Code Talker’s face with a mask(yeah i know it’s for facial motion capture)

            It could be Zero is wearing that as a disguise too fool you. He’s old, but not that old.

            The fact that they still haven’t mention Zero here much less in Peace Walker(aside from MIller’s conversation).

            I wouldn’t be surprise if he’s closer than you think. I really doubt Zero will appear here in front of Big Boss.
