Ace Combat 7 Top Gun: Maverick DLC Released With New Trailer; Developer Would Like to Release New Game by 2025

Bandai Namco released the Top Gun: Maverick DLC for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, while the developers talked about the future.

Today Bandai Namco released the Top Gun: Maverick DLC for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

The package, which is priced at $19.99, is currently available on all platforms, even if some regional stores may have to wait for this evening to get it.

Below you can check out a trailer and a list of the content you’re getting with the DLC.

Incidentally, Bandai Namco published a dedicated interview with the developers of the game, and it contains a couple of interesting nuggets.

Brand Director Kazutoki Kono mentioned that he would like to release a new game to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the series in 2025. He then added laughing that considering that it took 12 years between Ace Combat 6 and Ace Combat 7, we may be running out of time. Of course, it’s worth mentioning that this represents Kono-san’s views, so we shouldn’t take it as an announcement or a promise for now.

Producer Manabu Shimomoto also teased that the team is also working on a new free update to keep the fans happy, and they will be able to share more information in the near future.
