A few days ago, we learned that Ace Combat 5 Scenario Writer Sunao Katabuchi and veteran Ace Combat Composer Keiki Kobayashi returned to the series to work on Ace Combat 7. Today we learn that they aren’t alone, thanks to an interview to Director Kazutoki Kono on Famitsu.
We also learn that Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War and Ace Combat Infinity Scenario Writer Kosuke Itomi will work on the game. Kono-san looks forward to see what Itomi-san and Katabuchi-san can do together under the latter’s direction, and thinks the results will satisfy everyone.
The interview also included a message from Katabuchi-san, who mentioned that Ace Combat 4 and 5 were a memorable turning point for his work, and it feels nostalgic to go back to the same world with Kono-san and the rest of the staff. They’re already at a point in which they can share the summary of the story with the team during internal meetings. Interestingly, he also teased the appearance of new characters without giving further details.
Bring it on, folks. My body is ready.
