Comments

Namco Hometek announced today that it has partnered with high-end gaming-peripheral manufacturer Hori to offer a limited-edition bundle for its upcoming title, Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.

Retailing for $129.99, the set will include the game, a limited-edition Ace Combat-branded Flightstick 2 controller designed by Hori, and a jacket patch emblazoned with the logo of the game's Wardog Squadron. The bundle will release along with the game on October 25.

The original Flightstick controller was designed specifically for 2001's Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies, but was released only in Japan. This is the first time that Namco and Hori will partner for a stateside release. Only 20,000 limited-edition sets will be produced, and the bundle will be sold exclusively at Electronics Boutique and GameStop retail outlets. Customers who preorder either the bundle or the stand-alone game will also receive a special "making of" DVD video and a separate set of jacket patches. The game alone will retail for $49.99.
