Ace Combat 6 screenshot explosion!

40 (!) new shots of Namco Bandai's Xbox 360 flight sim sequel

Well, there goes our bandwidth; 40 (yes, 40) Ace Combat 6 screenshots have been smuggled out of Namco Bandai's media prison camp, and if you like dials and cockpits you're in for a treat.

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, to give it its proper title, it due out later this year with Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Co-op online multiplayer modes to accompany the vanilla single-player action.

The sixth game's biggest touting point is its Dynamic Operation System - a fancy feature allowing a maximum of six battles to rage simultaneously on a single battleground. There's also the Allied Support System, which lets you grab support from tanks, ships and other aircraft.


A full-on Xbox 360 flight stick is planned to release alongside the game, though there's no news of it reaching Europe just yet. It will though, surely.
