Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Update Arrives

The new IP from Intelligent Systems, Code Name S.T.E.A.M., has been applauded for its visuals and creativity. What it hasn’t been applauded for, however, is the amount of time a player spends watching what’s happening on the screen… without acting at all. A person could knit several sweaters in the time spent waiting for the enemy AI to move, and often the player doesn’t even have a good view of what the enemy is actually doing.

Nintendo and the developers realized this was a massive problem, and they announced in this month’s Nintendo Direct that they were releasing an update soon to reduce wait times. That update has now gone live!

For players on a regular Nintendo 3DS or 2DS, you’ll be able to speed up the enemy’s turn to be twice as fast. Those playing on a New Nintendo 3DS, you’ll triple the speed of play.

Does this change your mind on playing Code Name S.T.E.A.M. if you haven’t checked it out already?
