The demo for Capcom’s upcoming Kinect-based, mech-controlling, World War II-styled shooter Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor has been quietly placed online for download on Xbox Live.

The demo is the first chance for the public to give the controls a go. The original Steel Battalion shipped with a gigantic 40 button controller – but this replaces much of that with Kinect gestures that are used in tandem with the regular 360 controller.

Capcom have said they believe the release is the most accurate Kinect game yet.

There’s only one way to find out – you can queue up the download of the demo through As with all 360 demos, it’s exclusive to Gold Members at first.
