Preview: Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor

By Abhinav Pattanayak aka ctrl_alt_del


When we first saw the name Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor (SBHA) on the list of games on show at the Xbox Spring Showcase 2012, our minds immediately went back to the 2003 Xbox title Steel Battalion and the huge $200 controller it came with. Replete with two control sticks and three pedals, the original Steel Battalion controller brought you as close to being in a mech’s cockpit as possible. But when we walked into the demo room for the next iteration of the series, there was no such hefty controller in sight. Instead, we had the developer seated in front of the Kinect sensor with a vanilla Xbox 360 controller in his hand. The good folks at Form Software have ditched the expensive Steel Battalion controller in favor of the not-so-cheap Kinect.
