Someone get me my glow sticks; the latest trailer for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon packs in plenty of high-octane action with a pumping soundtrack of… look, I’m not going to pretend I know what that genre’s called.

The new trailer, embedded below, features close range encounters.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon was announced in August last year after being outed by a trademark filing four months earlier. Leaning heavily towards the arcade end of the flight spectrum, Namco has described it as a “rebirth” for the series.

Ten different planes have been spotted in screenshots and trailers, along with the surprising debut of an AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopter. Expect it sometime this year, on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Thanks, Evil Avatar.
