CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE– 22 December 2010– In 2011 there's a new gun heading to town as ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON for Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3 prepares to ride in on its supersonic steed and change the face of aerial combat games forever. In the meantime, the Project Aces team at NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. has a special gift to whet the festive appetite of gamers. World’s first full-fledged make-believe fighter jet App using cutting edge technology, ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON / TRIGGER FINGER , available for free download for iPhone and iPod touch via the App store on iTunes.
The App transforms your iPhone or iPod touch into a portable dogfight machine, letting you fly solo or engage in supersonic handheld battles with a friend. Choose between Su-33 Flanker or Typhoon and pilot your fighter by simply moving the device, complete with supersonic sound effects.
Touch the screen to fire missiles and unleash a hail of bullets from your Vulcan canon, all with the authentic sounds to match. You can even duke it out in the air with friends in ferocious aerial battles using two devices, while the camera mode lets you enjoy the whole experience against a backdrop of whatever happens to be in front of you, be it a snow covered garden or presents under the tree. Project Aces team is scheduled to make updates by adding more fighter jets and trailers so don’t miss it.
