Namco Bandai to Release Next Ace Combat Game as PS3 Exclusive

Originally launched in 1992 as a cockpit arcade game that simulated an F-16 fighter aircraft named "Air Combat," the next entry into the series now called "Ace Combat" will be released by Namco Bandai as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, titled "Ace Combat Infinity."

If longevity is a measure of popularity, the game has seen 12 sequels throughout its lifespan and the last entry titled, "Ace Combat: Assault Horizon," was release for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, back in 2011.

There is no word on a release date, nor has it been confirmed that the game will be released outside of Japan at this time.
