Author Topic: NEW NINTENDO IP! Code Name: STEAM  (Read 1683 times)

Code Name: STEAM is a new IP from Nintendo. It's a 3DS game, and by the way, STEAM stands for Strike Team Eliminating the Alien Menace.

As of June 11, 2014, 10:10PM EST, we know that it's a heavily steampunk themed strategy game with third person shooter-taken action elements made by Intelligent Systems. As the title would suggest, there is alien battling. The art style is "a Japanese take on Jack Kirby" and looks like Silver Age American comics. There are American themes, including eagles and stuff involved in attacks, and a soundtrack that "has both 19th century string-type instruments and rock music for the steam punk". There's also multiplayer, including online play. We won't be able to actually see it until the Treehouse demos, which, as of this topic's creation, are tomorrow.

Have this leaked image!

I've also seen two leaked screenshots, but I won't post them out of fear of legal retribution.

Sounds like an incredibly cool game.

The ones I saw were there before the ones were officially posted by Nintendo (I saw them during the roundtable), so I think they would've been illegal to post or something.

Hmm. I love XCOM EU as much as the next guy...who's played XCOM EU, but I've kind of got a bone to pick with the visual aesthetics of this game as it is now. I've never been a fan of of the literal adaptation of comics, with the thwocks and the biffs and the ba-booms. Of course, I've never been into comics, either, but I can see how a comic-book character design would make characters easier to see on a small 3DS screen.
