Yesterday, Bandai Namco confirmed that the next mainline entry in the Ace Combat entry was in development, with development team Project Aces being provided support by ILCA (who’re currently also working on Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl). Since then, another crucial detail about the game’s development has been confirmed.
