Capcom have released a demo for their upcoming Kinect-based Steel Battalion. The original title came bundled with a ludicrously complex, 40-button controller, but for this reboot, Capcom have stripped things back, replacing many of the button inputs with Kinect gestures, used in conjunction with a regular gamepad.
What's that? A developer has finally realised that Kienct can be used alongside a regular controller? Why yes, yes it can. It's not like we haven't been tearing our hair out waiting for something like this!
You can queue up the download of the demo here at Xbox.com, provided you're a Gold member of course.
Capcom have also dropped a really brief teaser trailer for the upcoming Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor short film, which is being directed by legendary anime helmsman Mamoru Oshii.
