Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Looks Really Great In Motion


Last night, Nintendo announced Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. for the Nintendo 3DS. Developed by Intelligent Systems, this is a turn-based strategy game with third-person shooter elements, similar to the Valkyria Chronicles series. Earlier today, Nintendo’s Treehouse team showed the game off, and you can watch the video below.



Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. takes place in a steampunk London, where wireless technology like the radio has only just been invented. While screenshots of the game aren’t the nicest thing to look at, it does look really nice in motion. Art director Takako Sakai says she drew inspiration for the game from comic book artists like Jack Kirby and Bruce Timm.


You can learn more about Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. in our report from Nintendo’s reveal event last night. The game is planned for release in 2015.
