Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Announced for Xbox 360 Using Kinect

Capcom's Keiji Inafune announced the return of Steel Battalion at Microsoft's Tokyo Game Show 2010 press briefing. The title, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, takes place in 2082 in a world without computers.

nope Additional details are light, but the game will be developed by From Software (Armored Core, Demon's Souls) and published by Capcom. It will be a Kinect game, making it exclusive to the Xbox 360.

The visual style of the game is reminiscent of World War II, despite taking place in this alternate future. It will be interesting to see how From Software and Capcom take Steel Battalion, which shipped with one of the most complex controllers ever released to the consumer market, to a platform utilizing no controller.

No release date was discussed. A teaser trailer for the game can be found after the break.
