Capcom Announces Steel Battalion Heavy Armor for Xbox 360
At TGS today, Capcom revealed their first game for Microsoft’s hands-free motion controller, Kinect, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor. Whereas previous Steel Battalion games have required an exorbitant controller, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor will be a completely controller free experience.
The game was revealed by Keiji Inafune at Microsoft’s keynote. “The announcement of Steel Battalion Heavy Armor is further testament to Capcom’s commitment to produce innovative titles that take advantage of the latest technology”, commented Keiji Inafune. “With Kinect’s ability to track your joints and movements and understand where the player is in 3D space and the development expertise of From Software in partnership with Capcom’s own personnel, we are confident of delivering a truly immersive experience for Xbox 360 gamers.”
“We are thrilled to once again work with our partners at Capcom and From Software to develop exclusive, innovative titles,” said Matt Barlow, General Manager, Interactive Entertainment Business Marketing for Microsoft. “It’s exciting to see publishers evolve renowned franchises like ‘Steel Battalion’ with Kinect to create gameplay that you can only experience on Xbox 360.”
