Nintendo Unveils New IP Titled Codename: Steam for 3DS

Codename: Steam is a steam punk themed turn-based strategy game coming to Nintendo 3DS in 2015.

Game is developed by Intelligent Systems with Hitoshi Yamagami of Fire Emblem and Advance Wars fame at the helm.

President Lincoln has created a special department to fight aliens. The game will be played in third person perspective, and have many action elements meshed up with the turn based strategy. Many at the roundtable compared the game to Valkyria Chronicles. 

The style borrows heavily from Silver Age comic artists such as Jack Kirby. The enemies are aliens that resemble monsters from the tales of H.P. Lovecraft. 

The game will be showcased tomorrow on Nintendo Treehouse Live. [❤]

New Super Mario Bros. 2 2DS Bundle coming this Summer to Europe
Oddly enough, it will be launching on July 4. No doubt to celebrate that one time they lost a war!
Sorry.
The bundle will include a Red and White 2DS packed with a copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 pre-installed, along with the DLC that includes 30 new challenges. No news on cost yet.
I expect at least two new bundles to be announced before E3 ends. Nintendo really wants to take advantage of that newfound momentum. [❤]

Pokemon X or Y free for the month of March
When you register a Nintendo 3DS or 2DS system + one of six select games including Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, LEGO® City Undercover: The Chase Begins and Yoshi’s New Island. 
Not a bad deal to nab a version of the best selling/arguably best game of 2013. If you haven’t gotten on the 3DS bandwagon, now’s your chance, I don’t see the deals getting better than this.

Happy 3rd Birthday 3DS!
Nintendo’s current portable was released on this day in 2011. Raise your hand if you bought it opening day. I did, and boy was I disappointed by the dismal launch title selection.
Slowly but surely, the library grew with gems like Pokemon X and Y, Super Mario 3D Land, A Link Between Worlds, Animal Crossing New Leaf and countless titles more, including some eShop gems.
Here’s to a few more awesome years. Now if we can only get a really dedicated Virtual Console…. [❤]
