Get Inside of Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor’s Mechs – TrailerPosted 5:03 am on Wednesday, October 26th, 2011 by Ryan Southard
Steel Battalion, the Capcom game on Xbox that spawned a controller packing 40 buttons, two sticks, and three pedals, is getting a sequel on Kinect. However, foregoing the gigantic controller, the new iteration will be controlled via Kinect. Players will be doing small hand movements to control different functions of the mech, and to punch crew members who can’t take the heat of battle and are trying to escape the mech. However, the mech’s movement and aiming will be controlled with the Xbox 360 controller, thankfully. Outside of a few titles, Kinect seems to appeal mainly to “non-gamers”, but perhaps titles like Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor can turn a few heads.
Check out the new trailer below:
