Nintendo have revealed behind closed doors (for now) that Code Name S.T.E.A.M. (Strike Team Eliminating The Alien Menace) is coming to the 3DS, showing off a cel-shaded London, with a steampunk vibe to it. From what we hear, the gameplay is a mixture of turn-based and third person shooter elements. The game is being developed by Intelligent Systems, who have been responsible for Nintendo favourites such as Advance Wars and Fire Emblem.
