Ace Combat Flies to iPhone, iPod touch

By Chris Faylor, Dec 03, 2009 11:10am PST Namco's airborne shooter series Ace Combat hit the iPhone and iPod touch with the iTunes App Store release of Ace Combat Xi.

Sporting an "opening celebration" price of $4.99 across the next five days, the 127MB download was handled by series veteran Project ACES. Subtitled "Skies of Incursion," it's meant to serve as a sequel to 2006's Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception (PSP).

As for handling, Ace Combat Xi relies on the device's accelerometer for tilt-based movement and the touch screen for weapon controls, with Namco having vowed to release more planes and missions as downloadable content in the future.
