Capcom has announced Steel Battalion Heavy Armour, coming exclusively to Xbox 360. The game will utilise Kinect to create an all-new experience.
Steel Battalion Heavy Armor was officially announced by Keiji Inafune, Capcom's head of R&D Management Group and Contents Management Division, earlier today 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.
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.
Steel Battalion Heavy Armour will be released in 2011.
