Producer Kazutoki Kono talks about working with PS4 Pro.
Bandai Namco’s Ace Combat series will be making a comeback of sorts with Ace Combat 7 since it’s the first mainline series sequel in years. Given how it’s releasing so far after the PS4 Pro’s launch, we had to wonder how Project Aces would be taking advantage of the console’s power.
Producer Kazutoki Kono spoke to GamingBolt about the same and said that, “As far as the PlayStation 4 Pro is concerned we are still making adjustments and seeing what the console is possible – what it can do.
“Some of the limitations I mentioned earlier during this interview (about maintaining balance between visual quality and frame rate in VR mode) that is an area that the PS4 Pro capacity can assist us with exploring in terms of forms of expression, of how we can put the player into this world,” Kono said with regards to maintaining a balance between visual quality and frame performance for VR. Ace Combat 7 will be supporting PlayStation VR when it’s out next year.
With so much discussion on the PS4 Pro’s GPU and how capable it is of native 4K in current and future titles, would Ace Combat 7 support the same? Kono noted that, “I think that’s still kind of up for discussion right now. We really just got to service on what PS4 Pro can do and how we can optimize it at best of the GPU is still – our team is working on that. So whether it’s resolution or frame rate or just simple details of the models, however we decide to optimize and improve that we definitely want to explore that. I can’t say right now though.”
