@Witchsight @Blackace.... Funny you should say that, looking at the price for Kinect ************************************************* It's like $99 on sale with one game. In any case, the game will use the controller mainly with possible Kinect voice and hand commands.
Capcom sets Western debut for Kinect-exclusive Xbox mech war game in North America; European release following June 22.
After eight years on leave, Steel Battalion is ready to report for duty once more. Capcom today announced a June 19 North American release date for Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, with a European launch following on June 22.
Billed as a Kinect game for traditional gamers, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor relies on both the motion-sensing camera peripheral and a standard Xbox 360 controller. Movement, aiming, and firing are still handled by the controller. The Kinect integration comes in when the player--as the commander of a "Vertical Tank" crew--must navigate the cockpit of the machine, survey the battlefield with a periscope and binoculars, examine maps, or switch gears for high-speed travel. The motion controls also come into play when certain events take place, such as when a member of the crew loses his cool under fire and needs a few good slaps to calm down.
Set in the latter days of the current century, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor depicts a world that has fallen under the grip of an Asian superpower, and nearly all technology has been wiped out. As American VT commander Sgt. Powers, players lead a VT crew into battle to reclaim the US from the occupying force.

@Blackace.... Funny you should say that, looking at the price for Kinect :P Im excited to see how this turns out. My phasers are set for ridicule i admit, but it has potential to be glorious.
@blackace I would. If only you could get the first for that price nowadays =( But yeah, it's kinda dumb to get a kinect insetad of the button controller. @thewastedyouth Wake up and go play the Otogi series on xbox. (From Software is also the developer)
Screw that. I'd rather get the XBox1 version and have an entire cockpit of controls instead of merely playing pretend! :roll:
I'll have to pre-order this. Never did play the original game though. Who wants to pay $150 for a controller for one game?
