    SlyCooperFan1: This topic has been closed. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the largest discussion thread on all of Acepedia, and quite likely all of Wikia! Create your own thread in the Forum's General Discussion board and add Ace Combat Infinity as a topic if you wish to discuss the game. Thank you all again, and good luck in your battles! Spread your wings - the sky is yours!


    There are multiple blog posts and pages concerned with this topic. I'd just like to make this discussion the main one. The new page appears to be updated, with the new logo as a background pic. Also, there are two sections that are added to it. I could be wrong, though. I'm on an iPod touch and the browsing is a bit tricky. Also, it's mostly in Japanese. Well, any info/opinions?

      Loading editor
    • Forget the section part, but there is a link to a page mostly in Japanese, and I can't translate it.

        Loading editor
    • A link to a page?

        Loading editor
    • From the new title page, there is a Japanese link at the bottom. The English word top is in it, and it leads to a Japanese Bandai-Namco forum.

        Loading editor
    • That link is on both the Project Aces NewTitle page and the NewTitle1 page. It just goes to the Namco Bandai official page of the list of their games on various systems. I don't think it has anything to do with what the title of the two projects could be, or if it's related to Ace Combat.

    • It seems like after every morning in Japan, the image is becoming more and more... "clear"?

      It had a completely black background and now it's showing some bits from the left part of the picture. Maybe there is something to the far left of the image?

        Loading editor
    • Could be, given how the far right of the image is the near center of the original teaser photo. Maybe it's Ulysses entering the Earth?

        Loading editor
    • @Solowing106 I don't either. That's just what it looks like. xD

      @Symphony8492 I thought that too, but either it's at like 1% opacity or it's just as black as the background. We'd have to wait for the next update.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah it could show yet another fragment of the Ulysses, and not only that, if you guys check the mysterious "countdown website" http://newgame1.bngames.net/ they are adding numbers after each day passed.

      Yesterday was 20.

      Today it's 30.

      "What's going on? Respond!"

      This suspense is just killing me, PA sure knows how to tease...

    • When the image was still black, if you clicked and dragged, the area would turn white, giving a flashlight effect. Maybe that's unimportant, just wanted to let you know.

    • A heads-up: the front page of ACECOMBAT.jp has a link to the NewTitle teaser. The image up top's even called "slide_newace" to boot.

        Loading editor
    • That just confirms that NewTitle is Ace Combat-related. But I thought you were talking about NewGame1 for a second. :P

      EDIT: Also, that banner on the acecombat.jp that links to the NewTitle teaser, the image's name is "slide_newace.jpg" with "slide" obviously referring to the slideshow but "newace" obviously referring to a new Ace Combat thing.

    • NewTitle

      "Here comes the third strike!" Am I the only one thinking Stonehenge?? (Strangely enough, I've been listening to Tango Line for the past half hour.)


      NEW TITLE

      ...has been updated to denote that it's for Nintendo 3DS. To me, this rules out any involvement of Ace Combat (but that's not why I removed it from the Unnamed Project Aces game page) because they'd be stupid to tease such a "huge" thing for Ace Combat and only put it on the 3DS. :P

        Loading editor
    • It is because Stonehenge was awesome. For a stationary enemy superweapon, it had the grand scale and the story behind it to keep it being one of my favorite superweapons.


      So does that mean there isn't going to be a new Ace Combat on consoles? I am feeling a little less excited now......

        Loading editor
    • I am gonna be Captain Obvious/poor-to-ok reasoning here.

      It's in the blue arrow marks, meaning it's friendly. Closest thing I could associate with that was Pixy's "Here comes the snow." Anyone want to build on this?

        Loading editor
    • @Demons of Hræsvelgr: No, my point is, if Ace Combat had their next game (with all of this teasing) on only the Nintendo 3DS, then they'd be shooting themselves in the foot. So I don't think "NEW TITLE" (the page with the countdown clock) has anything to do with Ace Combat or Project ACES. I could be wrong, but that's what I'm thinking. I think only NewTitle (the page with the pictures and the friendly message only) is related to Ace Combat.

      @Solowing106 Thank you, Captain Obvious, of course it's a friendly. :P But the only thing I could see Pixy saying "Here comes the third strike!" before he betrays Cipher is if it was in the Excalibur mission. And even then, it would be the AWACS, not him. I think it's AWACS SkyEye saying that, concerning a Stonehenge strike. I mostly say that because of all of the AC04 hints so far (of which there was only really one: "Ace Combat Infinity" and its too-obvious link to the Mobius strip). This could be a shot in the dark, but I also think they put "third strike" because in the Tango Line mission, there were only three Stonehenge attacks.

        Loading editor
    • To be honest with you, AWACS SkyEye does not seem like the joking type, only remarking about his birthday. It seems like it's GhostEye that fits the personality. But there's the question of what an AC6 third strike could be.

      Also, if it's a remake of AC04, then it might make sense if they put it on the 3DS. They also remade AC2 and put it on the 3DS, didn't they?

        Loading editor
    • What does SkyEye not being the joking type have to do with "Here comes the third strike"?

      For a game like Ace Combat, I don't think they would bother doing it on multiple platforms. If so, then they'd still be shooting themselves in the foot because a game releasing on a mobile console *and* a home console ruins the experience on one or the other (exceptions applicable like Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, but very rarely). Mostly indie games do that. I don't see Ace Combat affording to do that without ruining it on at least one of the consoles.

        Loading editor
    • "Here comes the third strike" was written with an exclamation mark. I don't know, just seems that way. When I read it, it sounded like a determined voice, rather than a voice that gave orders in a monotone fashion.

        Loading editor
    • SkyEye is so not monotone, though. :P

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. I just want to know what it is now! I probably sound like a spoiled brat, but when it is something big like this......I cannot wait. (I think I might have said I can't wait a few times now :P)

      Overall, I am really happy because the teasing has come about sooner than I thought. I originally thought it would take them another year to even think about teasing us.

      P.S. Did I mention I was excited?

        Loading editor
    • @ SlyCooperFan1: Ok, maybe not monotone, whatever. :D

      @ Demons of Hraesvelgr: I'm bursting on the inside with excitement, I'm also trying to be sort of a detective and figure out these website clues.

        Loading editor
    • Our own detective? Although with all of Project Aces shenanigans we'll probally need one lol :D


      "Here comes the third strike!"

      I can just imagine a Stonehenge round blasting past the canopy of an aircraft and sheering the complete aircraft into millions of pieces.


      Or the very first impacts of Ulysses fragments hitting USEA and tearing the ground around it, with several aircraft getting caught in with the debris.

        Loading editor
    • Now, I am sure this isn't a legit video made by anyone at Project Aces but it sure looks convincing:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmB99KllIno

        Loading editor
    • The only thing about it that looks convincing is the ending shower of meteors, but it still looks easy enough to do on Adobe Flash and Fireworks. No confirmation from Project ACES's Facebook or Twitter (even though people are claiming that the official Facebook linked to it, when it was a fan-made Assault Horizon page), so we can't call it official yet. Fuels the hype even further, though. :P

        Loading editor
    • If only it counted down to the third at 1530 hrs. Would be so much more obvious.

        Loading editor
    • What do you mean?

        Loading editor
    • That was poorly worded, my mistake.

      On the Ulysses page, the fragments hit at 3:30 PM on July 3rd, 1999.

      Maybe the V and the F next to the numbers have something to do with the asteroid.

        Loading editor
    • Maybe the fact that the countdown isn't counting down to July 3rd is a hint to what I believe about the 3DS thing not being related to Ace Combat at all? :P

        Loading editor
    • Something is almost sure: We will have something related with Stonehenge or Ulysses, most probably the last one.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I think the countdown thing is a red herring; that isn't to say that we shouldn't keep watching it.

        Loading editor
    • Well... after seeing the 3ds thing I concluded:

      " This has absolutely nothing to do with Ace Combat. If it indeed does, then Project Aces pulled the dickest move of the century... "

        Loading editor
    • Could "third strike" refer to Belka? Striking once in 1995, second time in 2010, and third now? I was thinking about how "strike" rhymes with "reich", "Here comes the Third Reich".

        Loading editor
    • Fun fact: There's a music track in AC04 called "Second Strike".

        Loading editor
    • @Symphony My thoughts exactly.

      @Solowing That's an interesting idea... weird that they would skip 3 and 04, though.

      @Symphony I hadn't thought of that!

    • Oh, whoa, I typed that right when there was an update. What the hell is Kottos 2, other than another flying airship?

    • I edited that message, but I'm gonna repost what I had put in there.

      Wikipedia: Hekatonkheires#Hesiod

      Acepedia: Kottos and Gyges and Aigaion

      Kottos is one of the three Hekatonkheires. The other two are Gyges and Aigaion. This is Ace Combat 6 we're dealing with here.

        Loading editor
    • Well, this is a change of events isn't it?


      Actually, can someone give me a recap on what we have got from Project Aces? I am at school and can't get onto the websites needed to see for myself

        Loading editor
    • Gosh, so many possibilities, it says Kottos 2. If it's 2 this means it's a new one built after the war (or even before, used earlier by another country). It could also be simply a new superweapon named after Kottos. I also thought it could be merely a squadron named after Kottos, but after seeing its engines were destroyed, well... I don't think squadrons have engines...

        Loading editor
    • @Demons All we have are "Here comes the third strike!" and "All engines on Kottos 2 destroyed!" as friendly radio transmissions, along with the aforementioned "That day our sky fe||, the heavens split to create new skies." Otherwise, we have nothing from Project Aces. You can see all of the information at Unnamed Project Aces game.

      @Symphony According to this Wikia, there were two Kottos airships. So Kottos 2 fits it completely.

        Loading editor
    • @SlyCooperFan1 Ok, sweet. I didn't want to be a pain in the behind at all.


      Well, if that is the case, would we be seeing some sort of game associated with AC 6? Don't mean to be saying anything obvious. These messages they are giving us seem to be very mixed, well, from my point of view.

        Loading editor
    • It's all pointing out to be a game where you play as an Estovakian, then...

      Not really what I would expect but... okay.

    • Am I the only one gravely disappointed in this being related to AC6? :/

      @Symphony Where did you get playing as an Estovakian from that?

      @Demons As far as we know, the airship fleet was first used in the invasion of Gracemeria.

        Loading editor
    • @SlyCooperFan1 The "dialogue" that appears on the teaser site is blue. It's friendly.

        Loading editor
    • @Symphony Which is why I'm thinking this might be a remake of Ace Combat 6. Besides, how would it make any sense if Kottos 2 was destroyed sometime other than in Mission 9 of AC6, when it was actually destroyed?

      Also, if anyone wants, I'm in Special:Chat to talk. :D

        Loading editor
    • Well, atleast we get some sort of tease every day, so for this we get some sort of picture of what to expect.

        Loading editor
    • Why do you think they call it teasers? They are gonna annoy the heck out of us, have some fun with that, then tell us our speculation was completely wrong and give us the details.

      As for a sitrep on the current status of either sites..."All engines on Kottos 2 destroyed", that one's been seen...on the countdown site, there's the words "TH Anniversary" with the X in between. So it's "V 20 TH Anniversary", "X" on the far end, and "F 30 TH Anniversary."

      They better be watching this conversation, because I am going to die of curiousity.

      I think it is an AC6 remake as well, and that would possibly make us the pilot of the Kottos itself! Fly that lumbering thing, with ECM asa special weapon. Either that or play as a Strigon member.

      It seems legitimate that we would be playing as an Estovakian, but I think it would be cooler to be an ace of the mighty Belkan Air Force.

        Loading editor
    • Some people are suspecting it of being V-Jump's 20th Anniversary and Famicom's 30th Anniversary, and some cross-over between the two on the Nintendo 3DS. Like I said, completely unrelated.

        Loading editor
    • Hello AC fans, aside from this teasing, any ideas what platform this new game would probably come out in?

        Loading editor
    • I still had my hopes up for an Estovakian Civil War plot, maybe it will explain why the Stovies hated the Emmerians, how the Generals rise to power and explain why/how Lorenz Riedel/Gault 7 introduced Belkan tech to the Stovies.

        Loading editor
    • Has anyone else notices that it started with the number "3" in "Here comes the third strike!", then, for today it is the number "2" with "All engines on Kottos 2 destroyed!" I don't know if anyone mentioned this before but what if it is a countdown?

        Loading editor
    • @ Demons of Hraesvelgr That may be. Seems very possible.

      I was also thinking that we play as Lorenz Riedel, tying my Belkan suspicion with the idea of Estovakians. Now all we have to figure out is how "Ace Combat Infinity" and the Sky fell quote ties into this.

      EDIT: @ MajorFan, I don't know what platform it's on, that's a good question. I hope it's on Xbox 360, since I don't have a PS3 and it would be weird (although genuinely cool) if they released it on the PS2.

        Loading editor
    • @Solowing106 My guess is that they really are just putting random quotes from previous games with these numbers as an actual countdown. I don't think it will have anything to do with previous stories, it will be something completely new. I could be wrong, though. It could be Anea all over again, but I firmly believe it will not.

        Loading editor
    • @MajorFan We have no idea. However, if this is not a game that will be released on multiple consoles, they'd be making a huge mistake of alienating another console again. The days of Ace Combat being exclusively on PlayStation followed by Xbox should be over now that Assault Horizon came out on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. I'm expecting that those three consoles are what we're going to see this on.

      @Demons That's a sound theory, actually. If we see something relating to 1 today, then tomorrow might be the final announcement.

      @Solowing Obviously "sky fe||" is Ulysses. And I don't think they'd release it on the PS2, at least if they're using PS3/360-gen technology. (But games DO still release on the PS2!)

      @Symphony When all signs point towards one thing and you think it's something completely different, you're either a mad idiot or a mad genius. We'll have to wait to see which one you turn out to be. XD

        Loading editor
    • @SlyCooperFan1 Well, we'll have to wait just a little longer to find out. xD

      Hell, I would even go as far as to say they are gonna update the website in the next few hours again with something completely different and random and we will be getting a trailer tomorrow.

      Considering the electrosphere/matrix thing in 3, she could be the Strangereal equivalent of Agent Smith.

      I still like her character, though. :3

        Loading editor
    • @Symphony8492 HAHA, you're completely right! LOL

      Checking for update...

      no.

      What if Edge was a man's callsign in the new AC? Just voicing the first thought in my head here.

        Loading editor
    • That would be unusual, but is a possibility. It could be a person whose hero is Edge, or it could just be as simple as his callsign being Edge. I just really want to see what Project Aces show tomorrow.


      Although, if the speculations are correct, and it is called "Ace Combat: Infinity", we could see a cross over of all Ace Combat games, in some wacky way. Just another idea to add to the list.

        Loading editor
    • An HD collection of 04, 5, Zero, and 6? Actually makes some kind of sense:

      04 - "Third strike" relating to Stonehenge

      5 - "Edge"

      6 - "Kottos"

      Zero - 3... 2... 1... zero tomorrow.

        Loading editor
    • It is just unusual for an already HD game, Ace Combat 6, to made into a HD remake, unless, it is more then just HD, and a complete graphics remake has been done, which would be awesome.

        Loading editor
    • The Kottos quote isn't from Ace Combat 6 in the first place, so if my prediction is correct, then AC6 was remade. And if so, then they would have definitely remade the graphics.

      Plus, it would bring the legacy series to the Xbox 360 while giving the PS3 owners AC6 and remaking the games so everyone wins out.

      Then again, the amount of money for that and the disc scape required is highly unlikely... I suppose it's just a dream. :P

        Loading editor
    • True. But there are references to several other AC games (obviously). It would be weird for it to just be a remake of one of them. Don't get me wrong, there is definately a chance it could be an Ace Combat 6 remake, and, hell, I would welcome it since I would be able to get it on my PS3 (since my X-BOX's power supply died, so I can't play my original), but, to me, it looks like a remake of all of the Ace Combat games from Ace Combat 4 to Ace Combat 6.

    • That's... what I said. A collection of HD remakes. :P

    • Oh, sorry. I only read it as you saying only an Ace Combat 6 remake. My bad :P

        Loading editor
    • Well, what I was saying were the benefits of my idea being put into motion. PlayStation finally gets Ace Combat 6 and Xbox finally gets 04, 5, and Zero, and both sides get full HD remakes of them.

      While looking up something for a friend, I found that July 18, 1994 was the date the Excalibur was declared to be fully operational. Could just be a red herring, but noteworthy nonetheless.

      We are six hours to estimated impact.

        Loading editor
    • Red is also the color of Yuktobania and Estovakia (Ratio too, but really.) on the Strangereal map, the one I printed out five years ago. Either play as Yuktobania (which would explain "Ridgeback One. Edge, report.") or Estovakia (explaining "All engines on Kottos 2 destroyed!"). Or, prowling deeper, we find the Republic of Delarus, which was Allied with ISAF. That would explain "Here comes the third strike!"

      Now only one question may remain: which one?

        Loading editor
    • Whatever it is, the title will be "Ace Combat Infinity", of course!

        Loading editor
    • I looked on the Project Aces page just now. Infinity aye? Better be a trailer soon

        Loading editor
    • After the countdown from 3 to 1, and now infinity, it reminds me that ACZ's loading screens do have infinity mentioned here and there:

      "For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either."

      "All held the finite and infinite as unrelated. None could foresee that the history of the two would become one."

      Not necessarily saying this is related to Zero, but there were speculations that "zero" as a number would be mentioned after "Ridgeback One" earlier. We just have to wait for the official big announcement, I suppose.

      Listen to what Sympony8492 is saying, people. We don't know if this game is PS3 exclusive for sure, and the downloadable F2P exclusive is probably rumors by disgruntled AC fans because it's not they game THEY wanted. So everybody stop spreading rumors until we know what Project Aces has to say.

      If this is the case, then the way how the contents of Strangereal collide with the real world as a crossover; it won't be a canonical setting, but a crossover for previous Ace Combat games into one online multiplayer game of some sort.

      But as this is just a speculation, I'd just leave it here until we get more words from Project Aces.

      Everyone else, please stop listening to stupid rumors from fans who thought Assault Horizon was the next Ace Combat. We know no gameplay. We know no mechanics. We know no release date. We don't even know the story (very obscure details are all we have). Stop listening to other rumors - only take what you've heard from Project Aces or Kazutoki Kono themselves as viable information.

    • For the record, I DID update the Infinity page. When I made my reply, I didn't know that September 25 for Europe was a confirmed date by Namco-Bandai Games Europe, for PlayStation Network. However, this does not automatically mean that it won't be on discs or on Xbox. For now, it's download-only-PS3-only-September-in-Europe, but if we don't even know the name of the flipping asteroid/meteor that hit the Earth's atmosphere, so how can we say anything won't change between now and September?

      For around an hour straight I continuously watched the trailer and paused it on the PAK-FA scene right before it passes the camera to see any markings, but I couldn't find any.

      Yeah, other AC fans have noted that all three craters that we've seen are from Tokyo, judging from the bridge in the PAK-FA scene and the airport in the other two shots. Interesting that Earth Ulysses strikes first in the northeast U.S. or southeast Canada, yet we only see craters, so far, from Tokyo.

      I'm really hoping they give us something soon. D:

      I have been watching it on my iPhone so the quality wasn't the best and I couldn't make out most of the frames with actual terrain on them. But, since I am on a computer now, I am gonna have myself another look.

      Edit: There seem to be lights....... contrails in the distance of the PAK-FA scene. There is a lot to study in this short video alone :D Wait, if you look behind the headphones in the trailer there are symbols on the screen behind them. They are blured but the fathest looking one looks like something to do with RADAR, and the one closer, and is cut off by the headphones, looks like the front of the CFA-44, and it has a red "X" behind it.

    • It very well could be. I haven't looked at that picture in great detail. Gimme a minute.


      Edit: It could be, but in the teaser picture that Mr. Kono posted didn't have the "X" behind it. Also, the drink is called 'Canada Dry'. Could have had something to do with the whole thing about the meteor hitting Canada.


      Also, could the meteor in the PAK-FA scene be a reference to Newfield Island? I know I am spending more time on the last scene but I just feel there is more there to be discovered.

        Loading editor
    • ...I just realized that connection. A lot of people were freaking out about a Canada Dry Squadron because it was in the same picture (probably the same people saying that Infinity is F2P, but I digress), but now that you point it out...

      Yeah, the X is a little strange there. Plus, the symbol itself is a little blurred out and distant, so we can't really say for sure.

    • Yeah, "Oh no it is F2P, I am suddenly not a fan", those people really grind my gears, but I won't start on that right now, it would go on for days, but for many games that are F2P don't really get a tease announcement, let alone a full announcement, they are just casually announced on the release day, well, that is what I find. There is too much focus on the whole build up of this for it to be a Pay 2 Win game. I just really get annoyed by those "OMG I just heard from this guy that this guy said that this guy got news about this game from this other guy and they said to that other guy who said it to that other guy who said to this guy who said it to me that it is going to be F2P and you have to Pay 2 Win and it is only going to be in Japan" people.

      And, come on guys! We heard it on the internet, so it's clearly true! XD

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I just wished that people would wait until the information has been confirmed by the actual source. As for the intergration part, you don't have to worry about it. If they are bringing the whole thing to a real life setting it doesn't mean that it has to go with full on realism based on current events. The only reason the story for Assault Horizon was a by-the-book mainstream war story was because it was made by a person who makes books like that. If the game was created by story developers in Project Aces, people wouldn't have noticed the DFM as a bad thing, as the story would have been keeping them from thinking about it. DFM wasn't bad, it was just displayed and used in a bad way. Now, back to what I was actually saying, the story is probably a Project Aces original, so we don't need to worry about it being in our world because 1. there has never been a meteor apocalypse on earth in our lifetime, so there is an original story that automatically says it isn't an USA V Russia 2. This has strangereal storyline written all over it even though it is on earth. An Earth war storyline in a game is only bad when they go with the norm. This game I don't think is going to be just any ordinary game if Project Aces core writers have anything to do with it.

    • There's rumors that've been going around the mill (believable ones) that Namco-Bandai are the guys forcing PA into a chokehold to make Ace Combat take place on Earth. That's why we got Assault Horizon on the consoles, after what they deemed was a failure concerning AC6. PA put their best effort into that game, and I commend them for that.

      However, a retcon like this gives them much more freedom. Yeah, we don't have Osea, Yuktobania, North Point, Erusea, Belka, etc. but we still have what looks like the same event. Ulysses brought Strangereal to its knees, and it'll likely do the same thing for Earth.

      I'm not exactly... worried, so much as I am watchful. This could go one of two ways, and there's a fine line separating the outcomes of success and failure. But I have faith in these guys. As long as they don't bring Jim DeFelice back (who I do not blame for mediocre storyline, at least not fully), and as long as they don't use any outside author like him, then I think we'll be very happy with Infinity. But again, we have to wait for details (seems like no one in the fandom is thinking of doing that, even if it is just pure speculation).

        Loading editor
    • I am trying to not get ahead of myself on this. It is right we have to wait and see. And I always thought of Namco-Bandai as the type of company who would encorage fantacy. Anyway, I am sticking by Project Aces while trying to not be biased or false advertising information. I tend to look into things a lot deeper than I should, and sometimes that causes me to speculate things, but I try to always find good "What if" things. At the moment I am listening to 17 minutes worth of the Ace Combat: Assault Horizon song "Dogfight", just to remind the good times I have had in that game. That game was fun, the story was bland, but, I am not going to leave a franchise that did something different to what they usually do. I am going to keep this comment at this for now. I could go on for hours.


      Edit: Don't you get the feeling that this is a pure Project Aces game, and not brought on by some author? I know it is just a feeling but it has to add up to something.

    • I have been scavenging info all around the net and I am tired of people jumping into conclusions and acting as if they know everything about how the game will be from a 23 second long teaser that barely shows a thing. (yeah it's 46 sec, but half of it is the PA/Namco logo), also, it is unlikely this will be a F2P thing, since it would make all the teasers up to this point totally irrelevant. Yes, Tekken and Ridge Racer are F2P now, but that means nothing. It's Ace Combat we are talking about here, it has a relatively small fanbase and most of it wouldn't support the idea of F2P/MMO on a game that has all of its strenghts on the SINGLEPLAYER. We should at least hear something from the actual developers before saying stuff like this. But I agree on the fact that they should release some more info soon. They must be aware of the confusion caused by both the trailer and the rumors. It will be good for them if they at least exlpain what the hell the game is about.

      I've never heard of those rumours before, actually. If they are true, boy do they explain a lot of the recent happenings in Ace Combat! XD

      But, personally, I don't believe that this retcon gives PA more freedom. Instead, with countries like Osea, Yuktobania, North Point, Erusea, Belka and all the rest of them, PA could take influence from various countries of the real world and shape their history to fit the narrative they strived to achieved for this particular country. Osea and Yuktobania may not be the best example, them two being clearly an analogy for USA and Russia respectively, but take a country like Erusea for example. They have influences from both Germany and USSR, the country has such a rich historical background which justmakes me drool just by looking at it.

      I'm afraid that, by forcing PA do the same thing on the Real world (taking Strange into Real), they won't have the same creative freedom with pre-established countries like Russia, USA, Germany, France, Greece and the like Instead, they will have to use the corresponding countries' social and historical archetypes and try to do away with them. This can either turn really-really good or really-really bad. We will have to wait for more details though, that's a certainty.

      Thankfully, this time they won't be having an outside author to write the story. This will probably mean we'll get to see an awesome story and not just another generic MW=WW story we've been chewing on from most war games the last three, four years.

      Strongly disagree with this. It's possible to have creative freedom with a real world setting, such as a fictional war between two real nations, an alternate WWIII storyline, a possible 'what-if' story between two nations, etc. It's just that AC fans hate the real world setting simply because Joint Assault's story summed itself up as a tale of insurance fraud.

      In any case: Mappy

      This year is Mappy's 30th anniversary, but other than that, and Namco, I don't see the correlation between Ace Combat. What I typed up was purely out of that lack of connection. XD

I saw a game called Ace Combat: Distant Thunder and I was like, I might give this a try. Ever since that day I was hooked.


      Hell, maybe that Mappy scenario can be a DLC campaign for the new Ace Combat. :D

    • I think it's highly possible. Clearly, they have more fans on Facebook than on Twitter, so the 118,000 milestone will mean more than the 8492 milestone. Yeah, I think that the Facebook likes milestone is our strongest hope for more info atm. :)

    • The Mobius 118 thing has another meaning. Remember that we're dealing with Infinity here, a concept that the Mobius strip is the most famous for representing. Honestly, whoever Ridgeback is, and even if we have Edge, I will be extremely disappointed if we don't get to play as Mobius, because this is Infinity and we're dealing with a Stonehenge-like facility. :P So that's more reason to worry about the 118,000 likes. xD

      @119.160.173.61 That's what Infinity looks like so far. I still hold my guess that Mappy does inter-dimensional war, but... :P Exactly how Ulysses got here is unknown, but I wouldn't really like it if we suddenly opened a portal between Strangereal and Earth. Idk, that would just seem stupid.

    • I had a thought. We see no superweapons in the trailer, meanig that when the asteroid came, there were no global projects to stop it. Also, I think there are some craters in Tokyo, so Japan would blame America for not protecting them, sparking a second "Pearl Harbor", and doing a Japan-America war.

      I'm thinking too fast. Why are there Japanese craters, then, if the asteroid impacted southern Quebec?

        Loading editor
    • @Solowing ...dude... we DO see superweapons. Stonehenge and Aigaion. Ace Combat Infinity

      When Ulysses impacted Strangereal, it did something that no one expected. Once it hit the atmosphere, it separated into a bunch of fragments that spread around the world. Stonehenge was designed to shoot the asteroid as a whole, not each of these fragments. The cannons tried their best, but because of the separation of the asteroid, all of those craters occurred. I would expect the same thing would happen here.

        Loading editor
    • The only superweapon we saw (or, in this particular case, we caught glimpse of) were the blueprints of Stonehenge.

      Also, I recall the asteroid did fell on Japan as well as other countries.

      Perhaps, by showing us mosty Japan in the teaser, that means we are going for a WW2 Pacific Theater V2, where the story may unfold in a similar way to AC04.

      Replace Erusea with Japan, ISAF with NATO/UN and Usea (or is it USEA?) with the isles of Indochina, Philippines, and maybe even Australia.


      Coming to a second thought, it would be interesting if the game took place from Australia to Japan and have a similar story to AC4, in that Japan after getting struck with the asteroid is rebuilt under an extremist right-wing party (which of course seized power after the destruction of Ullyses), and launches a campaign to rebuild its glorious Japanese Empire. Due to the state of the world after the destruction Ullyses caused, nobody gave a serious damn and thus Japan got back into the state of being a superpower. Then it attacked and conquered the surrounding area with little resistance. Then it turned against the countries of the Commonwealth (aka Australia and New Zealand and the surrounding area), and that's what brought the UK and in turn the US into play. And this is where the game begins...


      Just food for thought really, I didn't think too much about it. Whadayathink?

    • @79.7.170.218 You can't just ask him "Hey, can you put Infinity on Strangereal instead of Earth" and voila, the game is on Strangereal. It doesn't work like that. Whether we like it or not, the next Ace Combat game is Infinity and it's on Earth. But this does not mean it won't be good. It's just a different planet than what we're used to. Hopefully, Project Aces has learned their mistakes with Earth from Joint Assault and Assault Horizon. But seriously, don't freak out.

      And we already kind of knew that the future of the Ace Combat series would rest on the success or failure of Infinity. AC has been hanging by a thread for a few years now. :/

    • To be honest I don't mind the real-world setting all that much if they stick with the kind of stories, missions and whatnot they had prior to AH. You know, stuff like the airborne fortresses, superweaponry, hostile strongholds and all that. To me that's what was defining an Ace Combat game.

      I mean, Joint Assault definitely wasn't the greatest but to me it was enjoyable and fun despite the real world setting because it had those particular levels in it where you fought some superweapon or ace. I liked doing battle with those oversized B-2 bombers and the Spiridus, those were really cool levels. Either way, point is that as long as they stick to having the games feel and play right, the setting shouldn't matter so much. 

      Of course I'd love to see stuff happening in Strangereal again simply because I believe it belongs into any Ace Combat game.


      Oh and yeah ... please ... pretty please, let them get rid of the DFM and QTE stuff, I can't stand it. It was halfway fun at some point but both the kill-cams and kulpits got old after two or three of them.

    • Ace Combat is one of the games where only small changes need to be made. This is mainly because it is a campaign based game. On the other hand with games like Call of Duty, the game needs to be changed and balanced constantly because it is online. Ace Combat crashed, especially for Assault Horizon, because there was to much change from the game we love, and in turn, killed the campaign, since there was no room for freedom while flying because the DFM 90% of the time was needed. On the other hand, Call of Duty is now starting to fail since the variaty needed for a game based for online is not there. If Assault Horizon was an online based game, it would have taken off by storm, but, since the story is really where Ace Combat is known for, then it was certain not to succed.

      @Demons of Hræsvelgr I will enjoy this real world game. From this trailer, while it may be too early to tell, it seems like there is no DFM/ASM. YES!!! It seems pretty great, and I feel bad for counting my chickens before they hatched. If only we had a gameplay trailer, so I could see the three views; HUD, Cockpit, Aircraft. BTW, does anyone think that we'll have more of those types of views?

        Loading editor
    • @Solowing There's no basis for saying there's no DFM/ASM, because, as you said, we DON'T have gameplay. We have no evidence that there is DFM, and we have no evidence that there isn't. We have to wait for a gameplay trailer.

      Personally, I've always had a dream of having any of my favorite fantasy-world video games happen on Earth, just because. So I'm already enjoying the idea of Ulysses on Earth, even if the rest of the fandom isn't.

      3rd person, 1st person plane, and 1st person cockpit views have been in practice since AC04, maybe even before that. I see no reason for them to remove any of those three, but I don't see what other view you could possibly add. xD

      I think this plane is the most human-made, realistically-designed airplane PA have designed. It was the only plane in the entire series that had me fooled for being a real plane!


      I learned it existed in Strangereal skies exclussively at about 2011-2012, whereas I've been dealing with the series since 2002. No words can describe my disappointment. It was one of the reasons I changed my dream from becoming a fighter pilot to becoming a videogame designer as well!

      Although a pretty minor one, it still was one of the reasons! :)

      ===It get's worse. Wait till you see "Operation 14" of HAWX and you will be 'relieved'  that this gimmick isn't in Assult Horison.===


      ...you know, that ERS system is no better than canyon flights, tunnel flights, or the radar missions in AC5 and AH... :P

      There *was* a mission like that, though, with a huge amount of anti-air defenses, in Assault Horizon. It was in Derbent, I think the mission name was Pipeline. Even when following the ASM routes, the AA defenses at that fortress were extremely powerful. Of course, firing a couple of Trinity's did the trick to get the A rank. xD

    • Wait you're saying canyon/tunnel flights are bad?

        Loading editor
    • Not that they're bad. Just that they're the exact same. You need to follow this one set path that's the exact same every time you do the mission, with the same turns and everything. If you do not follow it, the mission is in failure.

      I'm fine with canyon/tunnel flights and I'm fine with ERS because they're the exact same system. It does require some skill to keep to the path. The canyons are a step above tunnels and ERS because of the various hills and valleys within them (w/o even mentioning the bridges in AC2, ACJA, and ACAHL), and ERS does have the annoying pull-the-plane-into-the-path problem, but otherwise they're the same system.

      The PS2 Sidewinder games (Lethal Skies everywhere else) did something like this a long time ago, from individual parts-based damage, to specific missiles being exclusive to certain pylons. There was even a little option for GLOC, where turning at high speeds blackens out the vision.

      Racing Lagoon had something similar to what you said, sans the weapons loadout. I like this and would like to see it incorporated into Ace Combat Infinity, no more picking an aircraft, its color, an SP weapon exclusive to that aircraft, then go. No, it's your aircraft the way you want it.

      MFSX does that, but I like adjusting the flight controls. What I ask is; Take MFSX, add the Ace Combat genre to it, and take out the civvies.

    • I really don't like mondays.......


      Like what was said a week ago, it would be really cool if the game had multiple paths like in Ace Combat 3 JP edition. Because then it could open up the story for you to having to protect either Stonehenge or Aigaion depending what path you take, and vice-versa for the one you destroy. Still, I am keeping an open mind.

    • @Solowing: The closest thing we have to an accurate release date is September 24/25/26 (NA/EU/JP). Well before Christmas. (Of note is that Operation: Judgment Day took place on September 26, coinciding with the rumored release date in Japan.)

      June 2, 2019, 1500hrs... that picture's info is already here: Operation: Fogbound

      We don't know anything about the first mission. (If it's not an anti-bomber defense mission, though, this isn't Ace Combat.)

      Iyuli is in Russia, not Ukraine. Given that Iyuli was revealed from the trailer, it was bound to have a mission there.

    • I thought from the briefing screen that it looks like an escort mission. "Operation Fogbound" gives it the sense it is an infiltration into enemy territory as fog disrupts sight, and either the target is still being discovered or it is a mission in an area with RADAR interference, and the word bound is like the movement to a target, but bound is more of a word used to describe a situation that is more dire, like "Hellbound", and so forth. So, my though is that it is an escort mission into enemy territory to destroy some sort of RADAR or jamming facility that is under heavy guard..


      That is my analysis of the picture, other than the "MISSION BRIEFING IS BACK" thing. :P

    • @Demons An escort mission? Omg, how could you have thought that? There's no way it's an escort mission, even though the screenshot itself says that the operation type is CAS (Close Air Support). I have no idea how you would even think that. *sarcasm* :P

      Funny, I'm taking a college course over the summer and I'm almost done with it, and stating what was already said, supposedly something new will pop up on August 2nd. Class is over well before that date, so I'll hopefully get to see a new bit of info.

    • Btw, the transmission is in Chinese not Japanese.

      明日、同刻、作戦行動開始予定

      Damn it. If there is a cantonese audio.

      Edit: FOUND IT!

      It's roughly means "Tommorrow, be ready for a (millitary) operation". Seems a Chinese invasion will come up at some point. "Roughly" since my Cantonese is more suited for informal speech and the text is so formal that I assume to be originally spoken in mandarin dialect, most likely from a government member or a high ranking officer.

    • Yeah that facebook translation seems accurate.

      Actually when I look at the google translate version as well as my very basic knowledge of Chinese, the reason why It says "World War l" is because one of the chinese characters translated it as a person "I", not as the number one "I".
