With the release of Top Gun: Maverick finally approaching, looks like its collaborations with games won’t be limited to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is getting its own as well.
The announcement was made today directly on the Japanese website of the movie, announcing that the Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown – Top Gun: Maverick Aircraft Set will be a paid DLC released in the spring.
It will include a F/A-18E Super Hornet and a F-14A Tomcat representing the movie, on top of collaboration emblems that can be used in the game and a version of the iconic “Top Gun Anthem” music rearranged by Ace Combat composer Keiki Kobayashi.
At the moment, a specific release date and pricing have not been announced.
Incidentally, the announcement erroneously mentions that Ace Combat 7 has shipped 16 million copies, but that is related to the whole series. The latest shipment announcement for the latest game is at 3 million (which is still very flattering).
Top Gun: Maverick will finally debut on May 25.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
