Steel Battalion, Crimson Dragon playable at PAX East next week

Two of the most anticipated Kinect titles since - well, ever - will be playable by the public at PAX East next week.

As detailed on Major Nelson's blog, Capcom and From Software's Kinect-controller hybrid Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, sequel to an Xbox game famous for having the most expensive and cumbersome peripheral ever, will make its debut.

The mech sim has hardly been shown so far, and almost nobody has had a chance to play it, so if you're attending, make it a priority.

Crimson Dragon is another Japanese-developed Kinect title which has largely been a closed-doors event until now; the gorgeous shooter has players riding alien dragons, and it's being developed by several veterans of the much loved Panzer Dragoon series.

Microsoft will bring several other playable demos: Kinect Sports: Season Two, Kinect Star Wars, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, Deadlight, Trials Evolution, Fable: Heroes, Bloodforge, Wreckateer and Dust: An Elysian Tail.

The platform holder will also participate in several panels and host a number of special events; check the link above for more information.

PAX East runs from April 6 to 8 in Boston.
