http://kotaku.com/new-3ds-game-is-code-named-steam-out-on-3ds-next-yea-1589657603

New turn based strategy game for 3DS, uses a Valkyria Chronicles style battle system with action points

Steam punk aesthetic, the "Steam" in the title refers to a group set up by Abraham Lincoln, fighting aliens inspired by H.P. Lovecraft.

Developed by Intelligent Systems (Advance Wars)

Hitoshi Yamagami (Xenoblade) is involved

Coming 2015


My new most wanted game.

Why did it have to be Steampunk? I hate Steampunk.

The best use of Steampunk I've ever seen was in that Wild Wild West movie from the 90s where it wasn't terribly overdone, and even then, I still didn't care for it.

Otherwise, this sounds amazing (or highly relevant to my interests at least).

I don't know if they're trying too hard to be awesome or they simply are awesome.

Lincoln sending out steampunk soldiers to fight Lovecraftian creations Valkyria Chronicles style is... is... I don't know. It's great, I think? Possibly? Probably? My opinion has some trouble taking shape. I'll try again later.

Live Stream Trip Report:

Cutscenes are presented in comic book format.

It pretty much plays like Sakura Taisen/Valkyria Chronicles where your movement and actions are based on how much meter you have left.

Also kinda like Valkyria Chronicles/X-Com your prospective is limited to 3rd person.

Each character has a default weapon locked to them and can carry a secondary weapon.

Some secondary weapons do things like restoring steam to another unit.

Each character also has a special move they can perform once per map on their turn at no cost of steam.

There are save points scattered about stages, and can also be used to restore health and steam to the character or even the team but at the cost of coins accumulated over the game.

Coins are also used to purchase new subweapons and other items.

When you end your turn with enough steam to attack in reserve, you can attack during the enemy phase and said attacks carry a chance to stun enemies on their own turn.

Stunning enemies also lower the enemy's defense.

There's a nice little grid effect on the ground when you maneuver around to see how much steam it will take to get somewhere.

Some characters also have the ability to leap over obstacles and gaps.

There are items and coins scattered about the stage that can be picked up without having to spend steam as long as you have enough steam to get to them in the first place.

There are also objects that can provide cover (which can be destroyed).

Enemy attacks can also knock your characters about.

You can only bring up to 4 characters into a battle but you will get at least 9 or more characters over the course of the game.

And Big Ben gets trashed at the end.

The Continuing Adventures of the Live S.t.r.e.a.m Trip Report:

Characters have animal motifs.

Enemies have weak points.

Damage can be variable like in Advance Wars.

Those green icons by weapon names means that said weapon supports Overwatch (i.e. the counter).

Eye enemies are indestructible and if they gain a line of sight on you you will be targeted by an orbital bombardment.

Enemies have Overwatch as well.

Multiple characters can stack up in the same square.

And there are some other interactable items on the field like a artillery launcher.

Well that settles it. Time to start saving up for a 3DS. Current library is pretty boss; future library is too good to ignore.

Prior to E3 i was wishfully thinking that i would love to see another Advance Wars game maybe on Wii U.  I didnt really expect  anything so was plenty pleased when this one was talked about.

Valkyria Chronicles and XCOM influences and made by Intelligent Systems (i love those guys games).   So I will definately be keeping an eye on this one.
