Steel Battalion Released

Capcom Entertainment today announced the release of Steel Battalion, the exciting new battle-mech simulator exclusively for the Xbox video game system from Microsoft. Using an exclusive 40-button controller, players "take a seat" inside the cockpit of 19 different mechanized VT’s (Vertical Tanks) during a rebellious attempt to over-throw the government. Ultra realistic visual effects and fierce mechanized battles in a first-person perspective create the ultimate gaming experience. Steel Battalion is rated ’T’ for teen audiences by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and will include both the game and fully interactive controller, selling at the suggested retail price of $199.95. As an accolade for its innovative technology, Steel Battalion received a "2002 Best of What’s New Award" from Popular Science in the Electronics category. Each year Popular Science reviews thousands of new products and innovations and only 100 winners are chosen in 10 categories. To be considered, products must represent a significant step forward in its category. The award was bestowed to Steel Battalion for its 40-button controller that was designed to completely maximize the gaming experience and immerse the player in futuristic warfare. "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. The innovative 40-button controller really makes you feel as if you are piloting a mechanized Vertical Tank. Gamers haven’t experienced anything like this before." Using the controller, Steel Battalion players operate a strategic battle mech through 23 action-packed missions fending off dozens of adversaries while in the midst of a massive military coup that has ensued on a Pacific island. With trigger buttons to fire weapons; foot pedals to accelerate, boost and brake; levers to shift gears and move, gamers must utilize the full potential of the controller in order to survive on the battlefield. A diverse arsenal that includes plasma torches and a MK21-6 twin pod rocket launcher will ensure constant variety and plenty of action for even the most experienced pilots.
