Yay, my first ever blog post!
So anyways, I found this video on the web because I'm subscribed to someone that specializes in obscure games and such. This video is a prototype of an unreleased remake of Xevious, another Namco game. This game would have been celebrating Xevious' 20th anniversary. If you're wondering what all of this has to do with Ace Combat, this game would have been developed by Project Aces using the AC04 engine. However, the game was cancelled in favor of Ace Combat 5. The video in question was released after Project Aces got 5000 followers on twitter, and can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgGFMhmIbGc.
Also, relating to this topic, one thing I wonder is why Project Aces doesn't bother to throw in any 'guest' craft into this series, like the Geosword from Starblade, the Solvalou from the aforementioned Xevious, the Dragoon from Galaxian, the Gyaraku from Galaga, etc. Just look at Airforce Delta Strike and their inclusion of 'guest' craft from other Konami games, and Ridge Racer, another Namco game, includes guest cars of some kind, too.
Any thoughts on all of this?
