Ace Combat 3D Becomes Assault Horizon Legacy


Formerly known as Ace Combat 3D, Namco Bandai’s Nintendo 3DS flight combat game is now going by a new call sign.

Flying in the exhaust trails of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, which ships for PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 11th, Ace Combat 3D is now known as Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy.

Assault Horizon Legacy will be out a month later than its console counterparts, landing on retailer shelves on November 15th. Ace Combat‘s debut 3DS mission will feature the series’ trademark dogfighting action, now with intuitive touch screen targeting and commands.

“The three dimensional screen of the Nintendo 3DS really captures the immediate and visceral thrills of aerial combat and ACE COMBAT ASSAUL HORIZON LEGACY is the perfect showcase for that,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “Every barrel roll, fiery explosion and heat-seeking missile will bring players closer to the action than ever before.”
