Posted by at 2:23 pm on December 7, 2009

Namco Networks has announced the release of the highly anticipated flight simulator game Ace Combat Xi Skies of Incursion for iPhone and iPod touch.

Developed by Project Aces, the team responsible for all console versions, Ace Combat is one of the best-selling flight action franchises in the world, selling over 10 million games since the original launch in 1995. This Apple exclusive development uses the iPhone and iPod touch gyroscopic sensors and touch screen to control both original and licensed aircraft! Featuring an original story exclusive to iPhone, players can join the Falco Squadron and take off towards enemy-infested skies in this sequel to the hit game Ace Combat X.

Always testing the boundaries, Namco pushes the graphical capabilities of the device’s hardware to the limit as it shines in HD. Players can fly through vistas made from real satellite imaging provided by the Japan Space Imaging Corporation. The game uses the hardware’s innovative accelerometer tilt control to replicate joystick movement, while weapon controls are placed on screen ready to unleash when engaging the enemy in campaign or free mission modes.

“Ace Combat Xi is a brilliant showcase of Namco’s commitment to bringing top level games to Apple’s platforms,” said Jonathan Kromrey, general manager of Apple Games for Namco Networks. “We think fans of the series and new enthusiasts alike will agree once they’ve gunned down an enemy plane or two!”

The game will be supported with downloadable content adding longevity to the already high quality action flight simulator.   For more information on Ace Combat Xi Skies of Incursion, including video footage, please visit More information on other iPhone/iPod touch games by Namco can be found at
