To celebrate 25 years of Ace Combat, a special livestream was held yesterday which revealed some pretty exciting news for fans of the series.
As translated by Gematsu, series producer Kazutoki Kono said “We’ve started work on a new project in the Ace Combat series. Project Aces staff will of course continue to be involved in the development of this new project, but as we celebrate 25 years and three million copies sold, we’ve come to understand we have many fans of all tastes. Our small team can’t handle it all alone, so we’re looking to expand the Ace Combat team in a big way.”
Although in Japanese, you can view the stream below:
The new game will be a partnership with ILCA, which is well known for the upcoming Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes.
Early this year, it was announced that AC7 sales topped 2.5m, making it the best-selling title in the long-running series.
