Voices of AC3 Development Staff - Part 3
Chief Programmer Toshiyuki Koike

Everyone, have you seen all the endings already?
Programmer Toshiyuki Koike here.

Since programming lasted a long time, let's take a look back on Ace Combat 3.

The first thing I'm gonna talk about is the "line-of-sight control".
Often in 3D games, you feel like looking around you, right?
Your neck was fixed until now, but I wished to make it free ever since the making of Ace Combat 2.
I'm very happy that I was able to reflect that wish in the game this time.

AC3E description by Namco, 1999

The latest installment in the "Ace Combat" series arrives at last.
With "Ace Combat" it made "the pleasure of flying in the sky" very familiar, with "Ace Combat 2" it underwent a dramatically beautiful evolution. And now, the latest series "Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere" that inherits this essence will appear.

The stage is a near-future world in which the power of the "economy" far exceeds the power of the nation. There, two companies have great power. One is General Resource, a multinational conglomerate with huge capital, and Neucom, which has advanced science and technology, based on the information and communications industry. The two companies, that were in a state of tension, have finally entered a state of war. The main character (player) belongs to an organization called UPEO  and goes out with a fighter aircraft to suppress the conflict between the two companies.
