Namco Bandai Games announced that the Ace Combat series has surpassed 10 million units sold worldwide since it launched on the PSOne back in 1995, while Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War for the PS2 has surpassed one million units sold in North America.

Debuting in North America with Air Combat for the PS one game console, the Ace Combat series spans nine releases across five platforms. The latest game in the Ace Combat series, Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, was released for the Xbox 36 in October 2007. Featuring photorealistic HD graphics and online play via the Xbox Live online entertainment network, the game introduced the franchise to an all-new generation of players while redefining the boundaries of the flight-action genre for longtime fans.

“For more than a decade, the Ace Combat series has delighted gamers around the globe with its incredible depictions of aerial warfare and undeniably fun gameplay,” said Todd Thorson, Director of Marketing and Public Relations with Namco Bandai Games America, Inc. “This remarkable sales accomplishment is a testament to the series’ consistently high quality, enduring appeal to a worldwide audience and incredibly passionate fans.”
