After the Ace Combat 7 news and images released over the past couple of days, today Bandai Namco of America followed up with another press release, including a beautiful key art featuring an F-22 raptor (you can see it above) and a few more snippets of info on what we can expect from the game.
According to the press release, we can expect “an arsenal of ultra-modern super weapons and formidable enemies that the series is known for,” seemingly indicating that the series is really going back to its beloved roots after the happy news of the return to the Strangereal fictional world.
We’ll also get “photorealistic visuals, intense dog-fighting action, a multitude of authentic and futuristic aircraft to fly, and an immersive storyline.” There definitely seem to be enough in the package to relive the glory of Ace Combat 4 and Ace Combat 5.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America Vice President of Marketing Eric Hartness accompanied the press release with a statement:
“ACE COMBAT 7 delivers the culmination of 20 years of aerial combat game development expertise, resulting in the most realistic and exciting ACE COMBAT game to date.
It’s no small feat for any video game franchise to thrive over two decades; ACE COMBAT’s longevity lies in its ability to deliver authentic and intense flight combat action, presented through amazing visuals, all wrapped in a unique and compelling storyline. We look forward to seeing players suit up and become ace pilots.”
Personally, I can’t wait.
