Namco Bandai first brought its Ace Combat series of arcade-style dogfighting games to the PSP in 2006, with Ace Combat X: Skies of Destruction (see video below). While that game was well received by critics, the PSP has been a no-fly zone for the franchise since then.
That's set to change, as Namco Bandai Games America today announced Ace Combat Joint Assault would debut on the PSP later this year. As has become expected for the series, Joint Assault will feature dozens of fully licensed aircraft in single-player campaign and eight-player versus modes.
In addition to the staple features, Namco Bandai is also adding a new cooperative campaign mode that supports up to four players. Under what Namco has dubbed the "Joint Assault Mission System," players will split into teams, with the two squads taking to the skies on different maps. However, the play sessions will be linked, such that completing an objective on one map will impact battle conditions for players on the other map.
