Code Name S.T.E.A.M. E3 2014 Video: Nintendo’s Next Big 3DS Title

Subscribe to KZCD-FM on

Watching Nintendo’s big, steampunk strategy title in action has us ready to go on a bug hunt.

Joystiq reports that Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is going to be a turn-based strategy game mixed with third-person shooting mechanics that will have you killing alien creatures. These aliens have been inspired heavily by the likes of H.P. Lovecraft. Nintendo has made things extra weird in S.T.E.A.M.’s story by having aliens invade London. In response, Abraham Lincoln put together a group of alien killers whose weaponry are all steampunk in nature.

Your characters will fight these aliens using steam as a resource to move and attack. There are coins scattered throughout each map that you can spend at save points in order to fill your health or steam and to purchase new weapons. Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. will debut sometime in 2015 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS. For those who were wondering what the S.T.E.A.M. acronym stood for, it means “Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace.” We have our eyes set on this turn-based strategy shooter because its being developed by Intelligent Systems, of Fire Emblem fame.
