From the Ace Combat team comes… Sky Crawlers!

Based off the series of novels and upcoming Japanese animation comes Sky Crawlers. A new installment from the genius behind the Ace Combat franchise. What makes this game special is the fact that the legendary director of Ghost in the Shell, Mamoru Oshii will be behind the game and upcoming movie(which by the way is looking pretty sick) from famed studio Production IG(of Ninja Scroll fame). Sky Crawlers is set in an alternate world and chronicles the story of young pilots ad mist a conflict between waring countries featuring dogfight warfare. One thing the Ace Combat games have been known for is their attention to actual stories surrounding the pilots in their games. And being based off of a series of novels(released in Japan) and having a famed director attached to the project should insure that a strong story will also surround the characters in Sky Crawlers as well. Not much else is known at the moment about the title and movie, but as usual, more info will start to trickle down as the movie and game release draws near. Sky Crawlers drops this summer in japan along with the anime, but no word of an US released has been announced as of this time.

    I’m sure just like Afro Samurai, this went through a little bit of development hell. LOL! But now it looks like a reality and a pretty good one from the teaser!
