The lights are on
Ace Combat has always been a cheesy, over the top, arcade-style aerial action game. Now, the franchise is returning to its PlayStation roots with Ace Combat Infinity.
The series' most recent iteration, Ace Combat Assault Horizon, garnered critical praise (including from Game Informer) especially for the inclusion of a new dogfight mode. Assault Horizon also switched settings from a fictionalized planet to our own.
The trailer for Ace Combat Infinity gives a glimpse of a meteor crashing down on the northeastern part of North America. Whether this is directly related to the Ulysses asteroid of the series' Strangereal continuity or simply a nod toward Ace Combats of the past is unclear so far.
We're eager to learn more about where the series is going, especially since Namco Bandai is indicating it will only be on PlayStation 3.

Wish this was coming to Wii U but I am fine playing it on my Playstation 3.
Yes!! I love all the Ace Combat games. :)
I must catch up on this series. I haven't played it since it's ps2 days. I really enjoy playing the Ace Combat series. Looking forward to it!
Chalk another series on my back log list haha dang!
PS3 only means I'll finally have to put my AC6 flight stick away. :(
PS3? No next-gen? I guess that makes good fiscal sense, but it'd be nice to have something to look forward to when the PS4 launches.
exclusive for PS3. finally. it would be nice if they set it in a fictional world, like the previous AC series.
