SEE YOUR OWN ORIGINAL FIGHTER SKIN DESIGN IN ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON

If you’ve ever seen yourself as a bit of a Michelangelo when it comes to aeronautical design, now’s the time to spread your wings and let your artistic talent fly. NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe today announced the ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON skin design contest, open to everyone from March 1 st to 31 st 2011 on the game’s official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AceCombatofficial.

The contest is simple: create and submit up to three original skin designs for the F-15C using the blank plane supplied as the canvas for your wildest airborne imaginings, then cross your fingers as voting is opened to the fans around the world and Project Aces themselves make the final decision.

The winning design will be released as a post-launch downloadable skin for ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON , letting you take your very own uniquely liveried supersonic fighter into the heart of the battle with your friends online.

How to enter:

·         Become a fan on the official ACE COMBAT™ Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AceCombatofficial

·         Download the blank Template of the F-15C fighter from March 1 st

·         Create your masterwork of aeronautical design on the blank canvas

·         Send in your finished design via Facebook on or before March 31 st

Fans will be able to vote for their favourites on Facebook throughout the competition, and up until April 8 th to allow last minute entries time to gather votes.

The top ten as voted for by you will then go to Project Aces who will then choose the winning design and announce their final choice via Facebook on 21 st April 2011 alongside the design itself. A visual of the final plane as it will appear in the game will then be released at a later date to be confirmed.

Each of the top ten entries will receive an in-game photo print dedicated and signed by the development team at Project Aces. The winner will not only have their design immortalised in the universe of ACE COMBAT, but will receive a signed print, and last but not least, a special limited edition of the game.

Following the launch of ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON , the winning F-15C skin will be made available as exclusive downloadable content.
