Interview: Move towards realism for new Ace Combat game

After admitting the Ace Combat fanbase has indeed been shrinking, the team behind the latest game Ace Combat: Assault Horizon are working hard to bring their classic game to a wider audience as well as grow the overall appeal.

During our interview at Namco Bandai’s Level Up event we talk about some of these new changes, such as using realisitc environments and the implementation of the FPS style health meter; We also talk about the main character ‘Bishop’ and the driving force behind the the story; the new in-your-face style dogfights and finally I ask about online modes which they promise will be an “all new experience”.
