In Control There Is a Character Voiced by Hideo Kojima Himself!

Control is now on the market, and many players are missing out on the intricate, ever-changing labyrinth of the Oldest House, the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control. As they continued on the adventure, some came across a rather familiar voice …

Apparently, Hideo Kojima has dubbed a character in Japanese that can be heard on one of the game’s missions, the bizarre Dr. Yoshimi Tokui. And the famous game designer is in good company! Also, Aki Saito, head of marketing at Kojima Productions, attended the dubbing sessions giving voice to Dr. Tokui’s interpreter. If you are not afraid of spoilers and are eager to listen to the dialogue, then you can watch the opening video. The doctor’s speech, as you will surely notice, is rather cryptic …

In light of this, an old tweet from his assistant Ayaka makes much more sense. Last March, the collaborator published a photo of Hideo Kojima in the dubbing room, explaining that the game designer was committed to “making recordings for the other Sam (not of Death Stranding)” . It is now clear that he was referring to Sam Lake by Remedy, control director and writer of Control, and not to the protagonist of Death Stranding! Hideo Kojima, among other things, proudly showed his Control gadgets last July.
