Chinese Chengdu J-20 “Mighty Dragon” Might Appear in Ace Combat Games in the Future

Yesterday, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Producer mentioned that he was contacted by a foreign aircraft manufacturer to build a future relationship. Today, he revealed which one.

Kono-san mentioned yesterday that he had received a letter of congratulations for the release of the game, and it involved a potential opportunity for collaborations. He added that since it was about a fighter for a certain country, it could be implemented in the series if the proper license was acquired from the involved party.

Today’s reveal shows that the aircraft is the Chengdu J-20 Weilong, or “Mighty Dragon”, which is China’s fifth-generation fighter with stealth capabilities (photo credit Jack Li / Planespotters).

Kono-san mentioned that the aircraft won’t be implemented in Ace Combat 7 since the three DLC fighters have already been finalized. This means that if it happens, we’re likely going to see in a future game of the series.

He also clarified that this is just a contact, and it isn’t a promise just yet. We’ll have to wait and see if it actually happens.

Recently, Kono-san shared the moving story of the game’s troubled development, and how it was saved from potential cancellation, and then went on to achieve the best launch of the series.

The game nearly sold out in its debut week in Japan while solidly topping the Media Create sales charts. It also went on to sell 500,000 copies in its launch month in Asia.
