Intelligent Systems' new 3DS turn-based strategy game.

Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

Nintendo has released a summary video of last night’s Code Name S.T.E.A.M. reveal.

Code Name S.T.E.A.M. is an upcoming 3DS turn-based strategy game with action elements from Intelligent Systems. Players will take command of the unit S.T.E.A.M., an elite fighting force created by the president Abraham Lincoln to protect the world from an alien invasion. It’s due out next year.

Watch the video below for the full outline.

    Looks great gameplay wise, though I’m still not sold on the art style…

    • Money?Muney??All my luveee!!!

      It looks a lot like Elite Beat Agents/ Oendan style though.^_^

    What was the point of keeping all this on the hush yesterday, if they were just gonna go and reveal everything that happened :/

    Weird Nintendo….real weird :/

    I’m wondering if this is all combat/missions or whether there’s any RPG elements as well like in-between towns or something similar.

    • Zackasaur

      Most likely just battles, in-between menus for team management, and cutscenes.

  • Stealth

    They said they are constantly working on advance wars and FE. No issue why they cannot try this

  • Locksus

    Reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles.
    Not a bad thing.

  • DrForbidden

    So just because a game is set in the US and stars Americans means the developers are making a western game?

    By that reasoning, Nintendo has been making western games since they launched Super Mario Bros. in 1985…

  • 罪罰

    You must be new to Japanese games.

  • DrForbidden

    And stars Italian plumbers and a blonde princess in a castle.

    Pray tell: what is Japanese style and what is Western style in your opinion? What part of the gameplay of Codename: STEAM is ‘Western style’? What part of Super Mario Bros. is objectively ‘Japanese’ style?

    I don’t deny the existence of different styles and thematic elements, but I don’t see it here, in this game. If we were talking about, say, Resident Evil 6 or Let It Die or even DmC, I’d say you have a point. Codename STEAM? Sorry, I don’t see it.

  • 罪罰

    you must be smocking some refined weed bro

  • Money?Muney??All my luveee!!!

    U drunk bro? Go try Vanquish there.
