Nintendo of America recently released some information on a character in the new 2DS and 3DS exclusive Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. The character revealed is Henry Fleming, one of the primary characters in the game that fights for president Abraham Lincoln against an alien menace.
The image, released on Twitter, displays information about Fleming and his weapon, The Eagle Rifle. The Eagle Rifle is a gun that can fire three “extremely patriotic” shots per attack, and has an ability in which Fleming can throw an eagle that causes a massive explosion at enemies. The image also reads, “Overwatch Capable: Yes.” This could suggest that some characters will not have an Overwatch ability in the game, which would spice things up for any game based around strategy.
This is a minor glimpse at the game, but more can be expected to come given how Nintendo worded the tweet: “Get to know the heroes and their weapons in #CodeNameSteam starting with Henry Fleming!” More can be expected soon, as the release date for Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is March 13th, 2015.
