Adwolf Covers the Nintendo Direct: Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

The next title featured is Code Named: S.T.E.A.M. It’s a cartoony action turned based strategy featuring famous characters such as Abraham Lincoln, the lion from Oz, and Tom Sawyer. It seems a little goofy, but it did remind me of XCOM: Enemy Unknown which is a game I loved.

That being said, it claims that it is completely original but I didn’t get that sense from the trailer. The gameplay seemed exactly like a cartoony XCOM. You must control a team of four and move them into positions to battle aliens. The primary tactic featured was Overwatch, which allows you to set your characters to shoot at opponents that move into their line of sight as a counter-attack (just like XCOM).  It is set to come out in Spring 2015 for the 3ds.

  1. I’m quite unimaginably hype for this title. Advance Wars was a phenomenal series that ended before its time, and I quite enjoyed Fire Emblem: Awakening even if I despise nickel and dime DLC and games that require you to buy additional content to complete their ending.

    The gameplay reminds me quite strongly more of Valkyria Chronicles with an almost Ninja Gaiden esque flair. Props on a multi-cultural task including John Henry and Tiger Lily as well.

    I’m glad wacky Japanese companies exist to make bizarre fantasy alternate history stories for us; Americans get bizarrely upset when we do it. There were Americans that were actually offended by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer. They felt it made fun of a founding father.

    And I’m just over here like “Really America? Really?”

  2. After looking into the title a little more, I must say this does seem like a very interesting style. I love turned based strategy games and this looks like its going to be a good one.
