Namco has not forgotten AC3

Namco have not forgotten about Ace Combat 3 - they know there are a contingent of fans out there who love the game and would just love to see a remake (oh, and in English!).

Did you know that a fairly recent game, the Xbox 360 title "Ridge Racer 6", contained a lot of references to the game? Does anyone else know of any other Namco games which reference AC3?

I recently acquired the official Namco Japanese AC3 guide book from eBay, it's something I have wanted to get hold of for a looong time. I will post highlights from the guide in my next post.

If shortly means three full months, then the full article presenting the Direct Audio is finally here!

Here we are, second AC3 book, first one not made by NAMCO. Can it measure up to the S-Rank achieved by the Official Guide Book? Well, yes in some respects and no in others. Let's get down to business...
