Remember this monster of a controller from the original Steel Battalion game for the Xbox? Well, no more! Capcom recently announced that A) they’re no longer trying to invade your house’s living room space with another similar controller, and B) that the new control scheme for Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor will feature simultaneous use of the Xbox 360 controller and Kinect.
It’s unsure whether this new control method will be easier than the enormous control panel linked above, but Capcom has said that the Kinect will play a large role in the game – from high fiving your crew members to operating a turret gun. The bottom line seems to be that Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor might just be the game that will make you look the most idiotic when playing by yourself.
Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor will be released exclusively for the Xbox 360 in 2012.
