Well friends, Ace Combat 7 has a release date!
It's January 17, 2019 for consoles, and February 1st for PC. This information comes at the end of a new trailer released at Gamescom in Köln. The public could play a new mission there, and the press could apparently play one mission more. But if you're reading this, I'm guessing you already knew that.
Anyway, a new show where AC7 makes an appearance means a new Famitsu interview with our man Kono. We'll summarize it for you as usual.
Anyway, Famitsu guy pursued an enemy plane in to a rain cloud and had to really be on his toes to keep sight of the plane while also not running into something in low visibility conditions and unreliable instruments. They really like those clouds.
One last note: there were two lines in the trailer which I and a few other people mis-parsed at first, but which can be clarified by referencing the Japanese subtitles.
We've gotten a lot of information over this game's multi-year press cycle, but I'm sure we're not done until 2019 either. We'll have those updates for you when they come around, whatever they might be.
