Capcom Announces Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor Live-Action Film

Capcom has just announced that a live-action film adaptation of the Kinect mech game Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor is underway.

Titled Steel Battalion Heavy Armor: Gosha, it will be directed by Japanese veteran director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Avalon).

The film itself won’t just focus on mechs blowing each other up — though I’m sure there’s going to be lots of that — but it will also concentrate on tank commander Gosha and the conflict that goes on among the people under her command.

You can check out a preview of the upcoming film below.

Steel Battalion Heavy Armor: Gosha will be available to watch online on June 22.
