Steel Battalion Sequel Announced!

Holy, holy shit. This could be the perfect application to sell Kinects to core and hardcore gamers, as well as rejuvenate the Steel Battalion franchise (and maybe get it recognition) in the west. Kinect means the price of entry is lower (for those who have a Kinect), and the possibility is there for the player to use the controller, and apply Kinect functionality to special commands, communication, etc. Capcom publishing this makes me feel good, and From Software has mech game experience with ChromeHounds and Armored Core, but I hope they don't stray too far from what made the first games so cool; the simulation aspects, team play, etc. Anyway, I wanted to share this. Thanks for the link, Tim!
