    Capcom sets November release for Steel Battalion
    09/19/2002
    From Wire Reports
    Capcom Entertainment has announced Steel Battalion, an exciting
    battle-mech simulator exclusively for Xbox.
    Using one of the most elaborate controller interfaces ever created,
    players take a seat inside the cockpit of a mechanized VT (Vertical
    Tank) and enter into futuristic military warfare. Players pilot 20
    different mechs over the course of the game while participating in a
    international task force operation to overthrow the government.
    Realistic visual effects and mech battles in a first-person
    perspective create the ultimate mechanized military warfare
    experience. Steel Battalion is scheduled to release in North America
    this November and will sell at the suggested retail price of $199.95.
    The ESRB rating is pending.
    An exclusive 40-button controller has been designed to completely
    maximize the gaming experience and immerse the player into the role of
    a Vertical Tank pilot. With trigger buttons to fire weapons; foot
    pedals to accelerate, boost and brake; and levers to shift gears and
    move left to right, gamers must utilize the full potential of their
    VT's abilities in order to survive on the battlefield. Mastering the
    controls of this tactical vehicle will allow players to feel as if the
    VT is part of their own body.
    "The power and performance of the Xbox hardware really makes Steel
    Battalion possible," said Robert Lindsey, senior vice president of
    sales and marketing, Capcom Entertainment. "Steel Battalion is a video
    game unlike any other in that the special 40-button controller really
    makes your feel as if you are piloting a mechanized Vertical Tank.
    Gamers haven't experienced anything like this before."
    Steel Battalion players operate a strategic battle mech weapon through
    12 action-packed levels, fending off dozens of adversaries while
    attempting to diffuse a riot that has ensued on a Pacific island ruled
    by a military dictatorship. Unlocking new missions, maps and enemy
    robots once the game is completed provides endless entertainment. With
    a diverse arsenal at the player's disposal, including plasma torches
    and a MK21-6 twin pod rocket launch, there will be plenty of action to
    go around.

    Man, I consider myself a pretty hardcore gamer, and normally don't think twice about plunking down however much cash I need to play the games I want. But $200 bucks for one game...? I don't know? It looks cool as hell, but for one game? Grrrr!!![​IMG]

    I was hoping for $150, but at $200 I'm tempted.
