News Capcom Shooter Xbox 360 Microsoft

Capcom’s latest trailer for Steel Battalion details the control system that will be implemented in the game. Requiring the use you use both a standard controller and a Kinect system, the game places you in a war torn world of the future.

According to Capcom, “movement of the Vertical Tank, aiming and firing of the main guns, are undertaken using the Xbox 360 controller. A wide variety of other combat-crucial actions are done through Kinect for Xbox 360 with upper body gestures – from starting the engine to operating the scope or manning the turret-mounted machine gun. Kinect for Xbox 360 also provides a means of interacting with your fellow crew members, from ensuring a panicked crew member stays focused, to a high five for successfully completing a mission. Set in 2082, Steel Battalion Heavy Armor depicts a world devoid of semiconductors, where war is waged with rudimentary weapons as new superpowers struggle for dominance. ”

If Capcom can pull it off, Steel Battalion looks like it may be a good reason to own a Kinect.
