Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown adds new skins for 25th anniversary

Because I was… inverted

Bandai Namco has announced plans to release a free update to its sky-fighting sequel Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown later this week, coinciding with the franchise’s 25th anniversary.

The “U.S. Skin Series” update will arrive in-game on August 20 and offers players three new decals with which to outfit selected jet fighters. That way you can look super-duper snazzy while you blow your fellow humans clean out of the sky. Hoo-rah.

The three featured skins include a pirate-style “Jolly Rogers” skin for the F-14D Super Tomcat and F/A-18F Super Hornet, a prestigious “Red Devils” decal for the F/A-18F Super Hornet, and finally a red, white, and blue design known as “Patriot” for the F-16C Fighting Falcon and F-15C Eagle. You can check out the new skins in the trailer below.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
