News: Kick the tires and light the fires in this rebirth of the popular flight sim series.



After seven numbered entries in the main series and a handful of portable games, Namco Bandai has decided to reboot the Ace Combat series with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. Coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, the development team at Project Aces describes the game as their magnum opus:

They wanted more from the series. They wanted planes that tore apart limb from limb right in front of your face, spewing their oil lifeblood across the sky. They wanted to scrape the streets and dodge the steel skyscrapers of real world cities at blistering speeds, in an enthralling war drama that spanned the globe with a web of intrigue. They wanted players to pick up the controller and become deadly combat pilots in seconds, pulling off breathtaking kills at impossible speeds, and doing battle online in a multiplayer sky littered with fiery supersonic debris. What they wanted was steel carnage in the sky.




"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 Kazutoki Kono, Producer at Project Aces. "We're confident that we're going to create a new kind of action shooting (high-speed and destruction) 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."

While 2011 might feel like a long time away, Namco Bandai has released a trailer for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (featuring plenty of gameplay footage), which you can view right here:
