Oh, yes – this is just what the doctor ordered. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown looks every inch the cheesy arcade dogfighter we’ve been waiting all generation for. This 11 minute gameplay demo shows a pretty experienced player laying waste to a series of enemy strongholds, all to the sound of inane babble from characters named ‘Tabloid’ and ‘Count’. Genius.

As we mentioned in our release date article from earlier in the day, you play as part of the Penitentiary Force, which is essentially comprised of convicted criminals. As a result, the government doesn’t care whether you live or die, and so you’re essentially thrown into suicide missions. Anyone want to guess what will happen at the end of the campaign?
