Ace Combat 7 producer Kazutoki Kono has confirmed the possibility of porting the game to other consoles. Potentially, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch owners may receive this fighter plane simulation game on their platform. Here?s what we know so far about Ace Combat 7.
According to GamingBolt, Kono explained that the possibility for other platform release is not entirely closed for Ace Combat 7. However, Kono explained that they would like to focus on optimizing this game on the PlayStation VR first before planning any other console release. Potentially, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch fans may have a chance to play this game if Ace Combat 7 developers release a stellar build of it.
PlayStation VR Exclusive?
Based on?PlayStation Lifestyle’s interview, it seems that Ace Combat 7 will not be a PlayStation VR exclusive after all. According to Kono?s answers in the interview, the game will not be fully VR as it will be released as a packaged title. The PlayStation VR also supports the game?s additional content. Lastly, the game?s controls are mapped to the Dualshock 4 instead of the PlayStation move.
Meanwhile, Gamesradar has confirmed that Ace Combat 7 will be playable even without the PlayStation VR headset. Players aiming to play this game without the PlayStation VR device can still do so.
Ace Combat 6 was released last 2007 on the Xbox 360. Bandai Namco may have had difficulties in developing Ace Combat 7 as the previous main entry is almost a decade old and was on a different platform. However, Ace Combat spinoffs were released in the early 2010s, and the free-to-play Ace Combat Infinity was released last 2014 on the PlayStation 3. Potentially, the Ace Combat developers may still have some experience in recent hardware in making this game.
The Ace Combat series is one of the video game industry?s longest flight simulation games. Players who want a game that focuses on skillful maneuvers and jet dogfighting may want to try it out. Stay updated with more Ace Combat 7 news here on The BitBag.
