Code Name: STEAM brings steampunk strategy to 3DS
Nintendo had one more announcement at this year’s E3 Expo and it was Code Name: STEAM, a steampunk-styled turn-based strategy game for the 3DS. Code Name: STEAM is in development at Intelligent Systems, the same responsible for the Fire Emblem and Advance Wars games.
According to Nintendo, Code Name: STEAM was inspired by third-person shooters and it throws a few more wrenches into typical turn-based gameplay:
The game takes place in a vibrant steampunk world, weaving its globe-spanning tale in the art style of a classic comic book. The title refers to an elite team of steam-powered special-forces soldiers composed of absolutely wild and wholly unexpected characters who must battle an extraterrestrial menace. To establish a connection to the main playable characters and to emphasize the verticality and depth of the level design, the perspective of Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. uses a behind-the-shoulder perspective at the level of the players’ squad. Players outflank and outshoot the enemy in a fully 3D battlefield with a customizable four-member team. To defeat aliens, they have to take cover, set up ambushes and unleash crossfires and counter-attacks. For every move taken or action performed, a steam gauge is slowly depleted, forcing players to use strategy to achieve their objectives. Along the way, players will acquire new items and weapons that give them more strategic options and firepower.
Code Name: STEAM, like nearly every other major game showcased at this year’s E3 Expo, will be released sometime in 2015.
