Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. is an excellent strategy title for the 3DS, but it's really handicapped by the slowness of enemy turns. Waiting for your opponent to move their units is a real drag, and makes the game hard to enjoy to its fullest.

Thankfully, Nintendo is aware of this issue and during yesterday's Nintendo Direct confirmed that a software update was on the way which will allow players to speed up the enemy's turn. If you're on the standard 3DS, 3DS XL or 2DS you'll be able to force your opponent to move twice as quickly, but if you're using a New Nintendo 3DS console, they will move at treble the speed.

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. also uses amiibo figures to unlock special bonuses, but the lack of Marth amiibo has curtailed this element of the game for many fans. Thankfully, Nintendo confirmed that more Marth figures are coming to the market this year, so finding one shouldn't be as much of an issue.

Also confirmed was a public tournament in honour of Tom Sawyer called "Hijinks", which launches today and runs until April 5th.

Do you think this software update will enrich the game in your eyes? Are you going to be queuing up for your Marth amiibo? Let us know by posting a comment below.
