News from the Tokyo Game Show reveals that Steel Battalion Heavy Armor will be the first of Capcom's titles to feature Kinect support.

Steel Battalion Heavy Armor was officially announced by Keiji Inafune, Capcom’s Head of R&D Management Group and Contents Management Division, earlier today to an audience of media from across the globe at Microsoft’s Tokyo Game Show Keynote Address.

“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.”

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 a twist of fate, the US army has been forced to begin major landing operations on what was once its own soil. In this low-tech era there is one weapon class that will determine the course of the war – the Vertical Tank. VTs are guaranteed to instil fear in enemy forces when they burst onto the battlefield; but they are nothing without the crews who man them. Lacking computer aided weapon and piloting systems, these brave men and women must now rely on skill, intuition and each other to ensure victory.

Steel Battalion Heavy Armor is in development exclusively for the Xbox 360.

Didnt see this until today… what are they thinking?! It needs the epic controller like the original for Xbox…. I never got to play this game but after it was released i was searching high and low, unable to find it and ebay pricing was over £200 :(. I want to get the original and play with that huge controller gear as i know some people have used it and say its very good….

If they released it with the good controller and none of this kinect crap then Id buy a second hand 360 and this just for it :P. Kinect is probably gunna be good for family stuff etc but really… games like these and flight sims arent meant to be used without a physical joystick >.<.
