Hideo Kojima's legendary series steals onto Nintendo 3DS in the form of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D - a stealth action title designed to fully utilise the unique capabilities of this handheld console.

With stunning 3D visuals that bring the lush jungle terrain to vivid life, as well as the use of the outer cameras and gyroscopic motion sensor as integral elements in the gameplay, Nintendo 3DS really comes into its own as you become Naked Snake and head deep behind enemy lines on a mission that will decide the fate of mankind.

It is 1964 and the Cold War is at its frostiest. The Soviets have taken custody of Sokolov, a genius rocket scientist who defected to the West, and have forced him to create an experimental nuclear weapon that could change the balance of power between East and West. As a crack operative in the elite FOX unit, it is your task to recapture Sokolov and sabotage this deadly weapon.

Stealth is the name of the game, as fans of the series will know; success is not about brutal blasting or crude combat. You'll be sneaking up on enemies, engaging them using the sophisticated combat system, and either interrogating them or taking them out. You'll also need to master the fine art of camouflage, adjusting your outfit and face paint in order to remain undetected. The outer cameras of Nintendo 3DS add a whole new dimension to the subterfuge as you use the Photo Camo system to take a picture and use it to adorn Snake's combat gear, helping him blend into his surroundings.

The dual screens of Nintendo 3DS allow intuitive controls as you scan the map and select menu options using the Touch Screen while keeping an eye on the action on the upper screen. The built-in gyro sensor allows you to tilt the system to maintain balance as Snake crosses precarious bridges or scales trees, immersing you even more deeply in the gripping gameworld. But take care not to get carried away - tilt too much and Snake could end up taking a tumble.

So pack your face paint, your headband and your survival skills and prepare to discover a whole new dimension of action and excitement, in Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D on Nintendo 3DS.

  • Enter a rich jungle world with natural depth as the world is brought to life in stereoscopic 3D
  • Use the outer cameras to tailor-make the ideal camouflage for any situation, and the Touch Screen for quick and easy menu interactions
  • Discover how it all began with the gripping narrative that serves as a prequel to the legendary Metal Gear Solid series
