De Europese versie van Ace Combat 5, het nieuwste deel in de Air Combat/Ace Combat serie, zal in februari 2005 uitkomen, aldus Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. Pech dus voor alle wannabe-piloten die graag een rondje vliegen maar nu even langer op de grond moeten blijven staan dus.

"In the game's premise, it is September 23, 2010 on distant Sand Island, a small island in the Ceres Ocean that divides the two superpowers, Osea and Yuktobania. An entire military base is on red alert--the 108th Tactical Fighter Squadron intercepted an unidentified aircraft and the entire squadron was decimated. You are a fighter pilot, part of the new squadron that's been called into action to protect your nation of Osea. Now, the story begins to unfold. One of the exciting new features to the sequel includes Wingman Command, where players can issue directives to their wingmen mid-mission to carry out coordinated group attacks. Additionally, the in-game radio communications with the squadron and enemies adds to the realism and intensity of the dynamic battle sequences". Overigens zal de Amerikaanse versie door Namco uitgegeven worden en wel in november 2004. Voor het geval je het echt niet meer uit kan houden, het introfilmpje is alvast ready for takeoff.
