Ever wondered what Abraham Lincoln’s voice sounded like? Wonder no more. Nintendo is here to answer that question.
In Intelligent Systems’ freshly-released Nintendo 3DS game Code Name: STEAM, the 16th President of the United States is voiced by none other than Wil Wheaton. The news was revealed in a tweet from Nintendo of America a few days ago:
Wil Wheaton is a big name in gaming and sci-fi culture, lending his talents to television shows like The Big Bang Theory and Star Trek: The Next Generation and the 1986 movie Stand by Me. That is good news for the game, considering it is a new Nintendo IP.
Code Name: STEAM released yesterday in North America. It attempts to blend strategy and third-person action to create an interesting gameplay hook. If that isn’t enough, maybe the fact that Abraham Lincoln has set up a task force to eliminate alien invaders will reel you in. Be on the lookout for our review soon!
Cool beans, I suppose. Now I’m gonna go watch Stand by Me. Thanks, Nintendo, for reminding me about this movie, even if you did so inadvertently.
