Capcom today releases Steel Battalion Heavy Armor, exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360. Set in 2082, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor depicts a world devoid of computers, where war is waged with rudimentary weapons as new superpowers struggle for dominance. In this low-tech era, there is one weapon class that will determine the course of the war – the Vertical Tank.
Utilizing a combination of Kinect and the regular Xbox 360 controller, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor puts players in the role of Sgt Powers, a veteran VT Pilot who is the only one who can change the course of war. Kinect allows for full control of the VT’s interface, as well as interaction with the comrades, while the regular controller gives players the precision expected from a first person shooter.
Steel Battalion Heavy Armor on Kinect for Xbox 360 is rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB and carries an MSRP of $59.99.
