Intelligent Systems’ upcoming strategy title Codename S.T.E.A.M has us interested in its Valkyria Chronicles style action. Luckily, the wait will not be much longer, as the game is coming out on March 13th.
In addition, players who own amiibos from the Fire Emblem series (Marth, Ike, Lucina, and Robin) will be able to use them in the game and enlist these famous fighters to help you dispatch aliens. Each one has special abilities, such as Marth being able to score critical hits, and heal massive damage to allies. Ike uses the Ragnell to strike from a distance, and annihilates several enemies at once with Aether.
This compatibility makes sense as Intelligent Systems is behind the Fire Emblem series, which is getting a brand new installment itself.
Those who own the New Nintendo 3DS XL will have a slight advantage during combat, as the c-stick offers better control over the game’s camera.
