With the release of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown coming soon to consoles, this seems like an appropriate thread to set up.

The game is set to be VR ready, and from the trailer looks like it'll be the best game in the series yet.

So, topics of discussion like favorite game, favorite superfighter, favorite superweapon, and favorite superfortress (among so many other topics) are always good to see, as is any love for this high octane, adrenaline fueled series of war in the skies.

I've been meaning to get into this series for such a long time. I even have a signed copy of Ace Combat 4. Signed by my favorite doujinshi artist though because it's his favorite video game. Yeah I know this is weird. My roommate really only likes Ace Combat 3 and she's played it multiple times to get all the endings but despite my love of sci fi series and even sci fi planes like the Yukikaze novels I wanted to try one of the more realistic games!

The AC trinity on PS2 is probably the best trio of games of all time. The only others that come close are the Metroid Prime games, but even then MP2 and MP3 don't come close to the first.

My favorite of the series to this day is AC4: Shattered Skies. I never finished it because every time I played it, I would always get stuck crashing down on the sixth level and I didn't even know until I watched a Walkthrough video on YouTube that there's a fleet in the sea that you have to take out first before going to the dock and getting locked on so many times I couldn't keep count. Still, I loved the planes and the narrative of the little boy who lost his parents to the war and then as far as I know, starts getting close to the Ace pilot who did the deed.
And so Javert, you see it's true. This man bears no more guilt than you! Who am I? TWO-FOUR-SIX-OH-OOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! - Jean Valjean (Les Miserables)

Having played 4, 5, 0, and 6, Ace Combat 4 continues to be my favorite. I loved playing as Mobius 1.

So, first off - BUMP

Even with no official E3 presentation this year, the anticipated release date for AC7 is still 2018. So, the release date is as unknown as the skies in his game apparently :leekspin:

Out of curiosity, have you played the titles they released on the PSP at all?

Man, feels like I've been waiting forever for 7 to come out. I never really played much of the past games as a kid (I would love to go back and play "the Trinity" with more appreciative eyes) but my interest and love of planes, specifically fighter jets, has reemerged over the past couple years, so I've really been looking forward to this one; devouring every teaser, trailer and gameplay vid that's been released.

I'm more inclined to think we will get AC7 in 2019 if we don't get a release date soon :uhh:

Nope, unfortunately, my handheld collection is extremely sparse, and limited to Nintendo handhelds.

So, there was a last minute trailer with some gameplay details but little else. Apparently the player character is part of a penal squadron paying off their debt to society by blowing up as much shit as possible.

And still no release date... but it will be released sometime this year, because I doubt Project Aces or BandaiNamco will let the 20th anniversary go by without a game being released.

Dang, no release date, but that is a slick gameplay trailer. Liking the idea of an expendable penal unit. Also, really hoping this game has divergent story paths like in 3; the previous trailers seem to hint at such.

Well, they are still promising a 2018 release date, and the game engine and story seem well flushed out so maybe by the end of Q3 we'll have a game out. Then I can buy it for Christmas with a new PS4.

^ Well the Black Widow was in the two handheld games, and a few other games IIRC (AC: Skies of Deception and AC: Joint Assault, as well as AC: Assault Horizon), so I'm sure its unlockable/purchasable at some point in the campaign, especially considering we're back in Strangereal

Yeah, January 18, 2019. But at least its a firm date. I'd rather have an excellent game to start off with than something that's buggy as hell.
