Ace Combat Returns to PSP with Joint Assault

Following up on 2006's Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception (PSP), publisher Namco Bandai today revealed announced that a second entry in the popular multi-platform flight-action series is coming to Sony's portable sometime later this year. nope

Coming from series developer Project ACES, Ace Combat Joint Assault will include "more than 40 fully licensed aircraft" and " multiple real-world locations including Tokyo, San Francisco, and London," according to Namco.

In addition to its single-player campaign, Joint Assault will also sport various forms of online and local area multiplayer, including a co-op campaign--four players split into teams of two and complete objectives on two separate maps, with completed goals affecting "battle conditions" on the other map--and eight-player "adversarial matches."
