Today is also the Ace Combat series’ 25th anniversary. Air Combat, the first entry in the combat flight simulator series, launched for the original PlayStation on June 30, 1995 in Japan.
To commemorate the milestone anniversary, Bandai Namco Japan is currently hosting a follow-and-retweet campaign on Twitter for a chance to win a message card signed by Ace Combat series director Kazutoki Kono and an autographed flight stick.
The July 2-due issue of Weekly Famitsu will also have a 25-page special feature celebrating the anniversary, complete with a roundtable discussion featuring Kono, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown producer Manabu Shimomoto, Bandai Namco Studios development director Masashi Koyanagi, narrative director Kousuke Itomi, and art director Masato Kanno.
