Namco’s Ace Combat series will never die. Judging by this latest footage, that’s a very good thing.
There’s plenty of story-based stuff in this trailer, including mention of NATO, fallen heroes and a brief glimpse of what’s presumably an arch villain.
Namco’s pegging Assault Horizon as a “complete rebirth” for the vintage arcade flight shooter, with the game being set in an “enthralling war drama that spanned the globe with a web of intrigue.”
Word to the wise: keep an eye on it. Best falling-apart planes in videogames.
It’s out for PS3 and 360 this year.
