When I read the news from the Tokyo Game Show that there was going to be a Steel Battalion sequel my heart skipped a beat. SO EXCITED! Then I read "For Kinect." ...wait, what?
So, yeah, at this point it looks like it'll be Steel Battalion in name only. What little they've shown of the story and VT designs have almost nothing to do with the original games. No big controller, obviously. And it's being developed by From, so I think it'll have more in common with their Steel Battalion wannabe, Chromehounds. Still, the fact that this is being made at all is kinda amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing what this craziness produces. Who knows, we might get a decent robot game out of it.
