Namco Bandai have released the first in what will likely be numerous developer diaries for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, the upcoming rebirth of a classic arcade flight sim. Producer and director, Kazutoki Kono, talks of why it was decided against simply naming it Ace Combat 7 and how he thinks of the planes as people with oil being their blood and so on. No he’s not insane but actually very interesting with details of the revamped control system making a much more exciting experience.
Coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2011, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon could be just what the franchise needs to win back departing fans who found the series to be less compelling with each iteration. Not me though. I bought them all. Yes I’m a sucker.
