Plot summary

    Translation: Summary (from the BOOK database)
    Solid Snake shuddered as he saw the contents of the film acquired from the mysterious terrorist organization. It was Metal Gear, the bipedal walking tank he supposedly destroyed two years ago! But it wasn't just one Metal Gear this time. It was a legion of mass-produced models. Having observed the situation with urgency, the secret intelligence agency FOX HOUND has given orders to Snake to destroy Metal Gear once again. The soldier rushes to the field of death to prevent the resurrection of the "steel devil". An authoritative take on the classic battle game makes its splendid debut!
