Team Aces Aim To Create A More Intense Combat Experience With Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

Namco Bandai's kinda confirmed as much in today's press release. Apparently, Team Aces wanted to create a game that not only told a compelling story but also presented the most explosive air combat possible.

"For us, this is a rebirth of the Ace Combat series, and a chance for us to take the series in a completely new direction," said Kazutoki Kono, producer at Team Aces. "We're confident that we're going to create a new kind of action shooting (high-speed and destruction) experience with Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, and we're pouring passion, vision and skill into making a game like no other. We want to bring players closer than ever to the action so they feel the energy surge through them with every shot fired."

If you haven't seen the trailer yet, you really should go and watch it. It's excellent.
