Videogamer writes: "Although we got to see little more than an announcement trailer, with fighter jets tearing through the city of Miami blowing up buildings and shooting enemy planes out of the sky, we did get to sit down with Kazutoki Kono, Producer of Assault Horizon to talk about the rebirth of the franchise.
Q: Do you think many gamers are frightened by the Ace Combat series? Is this a scary franchise to jump into uninitiated?
Kazutoki Kono: For previous titles in the Ace Combat series, a lot of players actually gave us feedback saying it looks too complicated. It's not frightening, but it's a little bit too high a hurdle to jump over to get into, and that is why with Assault Horizon we've changed all the gameplay. We made the gameplay with a new system called 'close range assault' in order to make the game more accessible and open to new players."
