We've said it before, but Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown not only needs to nail the frenetic arcade dogfighting action, but it also needs to match the unbelievably corny storylines the series is known for.

The return of this unusual franchise is almost upon us -- Ace Combat 7 launches on 18th January, in just over a week. Are you hyped to get back in the cockpit and blast some bogeys? Watch your six in the comments below.
