Get to know Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown at Gamescom

Get thee airborne

Gamescom is kicking off, and right away a new announcement’s hitting me like a QAAM locked onto my heart. That’s right, I’m talking about the next Ace Combat game, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, and it’s full of the loveliest nonsense that I sorely missed.

Bandai Namco’s new trailer, visible below, packs in the philosophizing, earnest questions, and the kind of sci-fi geopolitical ridiculousness that’s enough to give Metal Gear and Gundam fans the warm jollies.

Lucky Europeans will be able to check out the game (and some of its bespoke PlayStation VR features) on the show floor, as well. It’s going to be a long wait until 2018.

All we need now is an overpriced pack of Tekken or [email protected] skins.
