From the publisher: It was the beginning of a new era- the Cold War. October 16, 1962. The President of the United States received word that the Soviet Union had deployed nuclear missiles in Cuba. The world trembled in fear as the prospect of nuclear war loomed ever closer.

After days of tense negotiations, the Soviets finally agreed to withdraw their missiles from Cuban soil. However, there was a secret condition in the deal that put an end to the crisis.

Nokolai Stepanovich Sokolov, a Soviet scientist who had defected to the West, was to be sent back to the Soviet Union. Little did they know that Sokolov was to be the designer of a nightmarish weapon.

August 1964. Realizing at last the urgency of the situation, the CIA forms a plan to recapture Sokolov. They sent a lone soldier down from out of the blue. The man’s code name is Naked Snake.

The Legend of the Snake continues in 3D:
