It became one of the most successful franchises from Japan in the ’90s and has delivered one hit after the other to the fans.

The voice actor spoke about this during a lengthy discussion with Dan Allen, famous for his popular YT channel Dan Allen Gaming. Apparently, the actor himself thought of these as nothing more than rumors initially. Hayter says:

“I thought it was just a rumor until the day before yesterday when I got a text from one of the insiders, saying they heard it might really be happening… I only had some confirmation that it might not be a rumor a couple of days ago, and even that was still a rumor… but now it’s an industry rumor, so that tends to be a little more accurate.”

However, Hayter adds that the studio will need to re-record his voices for the game. This is because the audio cards of the erstwhile PlayStation consoles are quite poor in quality. In comparison, the current-gen consoles feature stronger hardware that devs can fully utilize.

Well, although this is not much in the name of solid proof, it is better in terms of credibility. In any case, this has naturally excited fans further. Remaking classic titles seems like an idea more devs should get on.
