Ace Combat PSP revealed - screens

Joint Assault coming this summer to Sony's handheld

Namco's fancy flying game series is coming to PSP this summer under the name of Ace Combat: Joint Assault. Here are the first screens and details.

The publisher says the PSP title will feature "benchmark visuals, an engrossing single player campaign and comprehensive online multiplayer options".

It's being developed by the Project Aces development team at Namco Bandai Games and is the second game to appear on PSP following Ace Combat X in 2006.

"Set in the skies over familiar real-world locations including Tokyo, London, San Francisco and more, players will step into the shoes of allied pilots and set out on numerous original missions to obliterate the enemy in fierce tactical dogfights," says the PR man.

"Multiplayer gameplay lets ace pilots get even with their foes in the eight player online versus mode, or cooperate with up to four friends in the co-op campaign mode."
