Today I became curious about Namco’s development of Star Fox Assault, and I found this:
At the beginning of the article there is a cursory mention of Star Fox Assault in early development. There’s no photo or video footage (that’s 2002 for ya) but of particular interest is the writer’s observation that “the developers of Ace Combat 2” are working on the game, and that AC2 was shown as evidence of the dev team’s experience with flight games.
Not much of a lead, I know, but this is a super interesting factoid that could lead us to learn a lot about ACES’s activities between AC4 and AC5 alongside more insight into Star Fox Assault’s sparsely-documented development. So let’s get out there and find out more, guys!
