The Ace Combat series will be ‘reborn’ on Xbox 360 and PS3 next year, Namco Bandai has told MCV.
Ace Combat Assault Horizon marks the first time the franchise has appeared on PlayStation 3.
Developed once again by Project Aces, the team has set about creating a more destructive air combat game – which the studio says is not a sequel to 2007’s Ace Combat 6, but an entirely new chapter for the franchise.
“For us, this is a rebirth of the Ace Combat series, and a chance for us to take the series in a completely new direction,” said Project Aces producer Kazutoki Kono.
“We’re confident that we’re going to create a new kind of action shooting experience with Ace Combat Assault Horizon, and we’re pouring passion, vision and skill into making a game like no other. We want to bring players closer than ever to the action so they feel the energy surge through them with every shot fired.”
