One of the biggest problems we had with Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. for the Nintendo 3DS was just how long it took the computer to run through turns. We liked everything else about the game. In our review, gaming editor Joey Davidson wrote that “If Intelligent Systems patches in a skip or speed up option? This game will be stellar.”

Look forward to a stellar game: During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, it was announced that a patch will be heading to the game that offers fast-forwarding through enemy movement phases. Exactly how this will work hasn’t been announced yet, but the video seems to suggest that the New Nintendo 3DS will be able to handle a more powerful fast-forward function than the original model and the 2DS.

No word yet on exactly when the patch is coming, but look forward to it fairly soon.
