The long wait for Steel Battalion Heavy Armor may be coming to an end. During a stage event at Microsoft's Xbox 360 fan event in Akihabara today, producers Kenji Kataoka and Tatsuya Kitabayashi hinted that the game is close to going gold.

Steel Battalion Heavy Armor, or Jutekki as it's known in Japan, was one of the many surprise announcements from Microsoft's Tokyo Game Show keynote address in 2010. Developed jointly by Capcom and From Software, the game is a Kinect exclusive. While you use the standard Xbox 360 controller for movement and attacking, you use Kinect to look around the cockpit and do such things as flip switches and operate the periscope.

At today's event, games like Diabolical Pitch (formerly Codename D) and Crimson Dragon (formerly Project Draco) were on playable display for the public, but Steel Battalion Heavy Armor's showing was limited to a press conference. Kataoka and Kitabayashi's demonstration was of the same Manhattan stage that was shown to the press at last year's Tokyo Game Show.

While it might be worrying to see the same presentation as TGS, Kataoka assured that development on the game is going well. The game is close to being complete, he said. Kitabayashi promised that they'd deliver a game that exceeds everyone's expectations.

Reading Is Fundemental.

"While you use the standard Xbox 360 controller for movement and attacking, you use Kinect to look around the cockpit and do such things as flip switches and operate the periscope."

Can't wait for the final version of this game.

Let the poor kid go, even though he didn't bother reading the op. Anyway, so this will be one of the first actual controller-kinect hybrid games, I have a feeling it could turn out to be something very unique with its interesting control scheme.

Also didn't know from software was involved in Steel Batallion, it could be one of the hardest games as well.

I need this game to come out so I can finally convince myself to buy a Kinect.

It's just that simple.

I think I'm gonna be using my tax refund to get a kinect. It's getting too many exclusives that I want.

Gunstringer
Rise of Nightmares
Haunt
Steel Battalion
Crimson Dragon (Project Draco)
Ryse
Fable The Journey

They're all games I'm interested in. Thank goodness for Nyko, I'm not sure if my room will be kind to kinect. My only other problem will be lighting. Might have to borrow my brothers kinect.
