Namco Bandai Games America announced today that its highly popular air combat action series, Ace Combat, will be taking its next flight to the PlayStation Portable later this year in Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception (Working Title). Bringing its realistic high-flying action to the handheld platform for the first time will be good news for Ace Combat fans who have dreamed of on-the-go air battles and wireless Ad-Hoc dogfights.
Set to launch in Fall 2006, Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception will bring wireless multiplayer game play to the series for the first time via PSP systemÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ad-Hoc feature. With licensed aircraft such as the F-14D and Tornado F3, and a strategic AI system where the course of the playerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s actions will directly affect their mission objectives, Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception adds up to the most realistic and fun portable flying game to date.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception will take full advantage of what the PSP system has to offer with brilliant graphics, intense high-flying portable game play, and for the first time, wireless Multiplayer functionality, all lending itself to a thrilling aerial combat experience, anytime, anywhere,Ã¢â‚¬?
