Two more MGS4 characters confirmed

Potential spoilers inside.

A scan from this week's Famitsu has popped up online, revealing two new characters who'll crop up in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Or rather, two old characters who'll return - since we're talking here about Mai Ling (from Metal Gear Solid) and Rosemary (from Metal Gear Solid 2).

That's a bit of a double edged sword, really. Mai Ling, a naval officer with a curious habit of regaling you with utterly nonsensical Chinese proverbs, was a hugely popular character, even after an ill-advised change of voice actress in the Twin Snakes remake.

Rose, on the other hand, was Raiden's astonishingly annoying, whiny girlfriend, who seemed to exist solely to moan irrelevantly at him in incredibly over-long codec sequences. Less of that, please.

Details on the characters' roles in Metal Gear Solid 4 are scant - Famitsu's article falls back on simply reminding readers what they got up to in previous games, which is an approach we've blatantly nicked for this piece as well.

Metal Gear Solid 4 is apparently the last game in the Solid Snake story, although certainly not the end of the Metal Gear franchise, and will appear in the UK on June 12th.
