Namco Bandai Have Released A Behind The Scenes Developer Interview For Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

Namco Bandai have released a new video for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. This video is a behind the scenes interview with the games Producer and Director, Kazutoki Kono. From the beginning of the video, he makes it clear that this isn't Ace Combat 7 as this game isn't a continuation of the old franchise. Kazutoki Kono describes this game as a reboot to the Ace Combat series and the Ace Combat style of game.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is an action shooting game that focuses on "Close Range Assault". this is a big difference as the previous Ace Combat games focuses more on long range combat, whereas this game focuses more on "Dog Fight" style of close range shooting. in the video its shown, as he discusses it, that they've made the planes very destructible, with wings being torn off. but a key effect is how oil flows out of a plane, much like blood would in a first person shooter. This concept is called Steel Carnage.

Kazutoki Kono finishes of by talking about how the controls were redesigned along side the games camera. the aim is to make it approachable whilst maintaining the close combat feel. he says that the combination of all this makes Ace Combat: Assault Horizon a new type of game, a new third/first person shooter.
