  • A lot of pages on the wikia (for example, Valahia Crisis and Nicolae Dumitrescu) say that the events of Ace Combat: Joint Assault take place in 2010-2011. But I can't find an official source for this. Does anyone know for sure and know of an official source with the information?

    • It says the date during the beginning of Bird Hunt, in the cutscene before the mission starts.

    • Wait a minute, I think I've just mixed up with the Spanish translation of the game!

    • The wikipedia article does say "after" the financial crisis of 2007-2010, so this game most likely took place in 2011

    • The Wikipedia article is a little iffy. First off, that's actually a redirect page; the financial crisis took place in 2007 and 2008, not from 2007-2010. Second, it doesn't actually name a reference for that information, nor does it imply that the events took place immediately afterward. I watched a developer interview, and they mentioned that this game takes advantage of the world's situation following that crisis (which it did), but I still don't see an actual source for 2010 and 2011 being the game's years. The only source I found was the official website, which says 20XX.

      As I said, the game year is said in the Spanish translation of the game at the beginning of Bird Hunt.

    • Could you take a screenshot or picture? It's not available on YouTube, only the English version which just shows the month and day, not the year.

    • If that's the case, I'll put up the trivia.

    • Seems the Tokyo Sky Tree is completed when game event taking place, since that mega-structure is scheduled to be completed in 2012, I assume Joint Assualt is set around early 2012.

    • @Loconator3000: Thank you so much! That's very odd that only the Spanish translations of the game had it... but that's proof enough for me. :)

      @General Wild Dog: The Tokyo Sky Tree reached its full height in March 2011, and the attacks on Tokyo in the game, as shown in the screenshot, took place in November 2010. So they're not too far off from each other. The structure opened to the public in 2012, but it was close enough for them to render it anyway.

      Well, I checked the Japanese Wikipedia article of Joint Assault, it says "since the Tokyo Sky Tree is completed, it's assumed the time is after early spring of 2012, however, since the fourth runway of Tokyo International Airport is not seen, so it's also assumed to be earlier than October 21st 2010, there's no anwser".

      Original text "東京スカイツリーが完成している所を見ると2012年早春以降と考えられるが、東京国際空港の4本目の滑走路が描かれていないことを考えると2010年10月21日以前となり、不可解である".

    • The Tokyo Sky Tree was completely finished and opened to the public in early 2012, yes, but the actual structure reached its full height in 2011, so it's not too far-fetched for them to render it in-game. Since the game explicitly states the year, thanks to Loconator's screenshot, that's what we're going with.

    • Wait so Joint Assault took place during the Circum-Pacific War?

      Well, technically, yes, but Joint Assault takes place in the real world. Ace Combat 5 took place on Strangereal.
