Thanks to updates to Kinect’s gesture-recognition capacities, Capcom is pretty sure mech sim Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is the best game the motion controller has fielded.
Steel Battalion headlines
Capcom’s Kinect showcase is closing in on the finishing line at last.
When the original Steel Battalion launched for Xbox, back in 2002, it came with a comically over-sized, purpose-built controller which is now something of a collector’s piece. Nearly ten years later, the game has taken a more minimal approach, in a Kinect-enabled reboot that does away with controllers completely.
From Software has said players will not be limited to just using Kinect in Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, they will also use the standard controller as well. However, the implementation of Kinect has added some cool features to the control scheme.
