NAMCO BANDAI GAMES ANNOUNCES THE WORLDWIDE LAUNCH OF ACE COMBAT 6: FIRES OF LIBERATION FOR THE XBOX 360

Intense Next Generation Air Combat Warfare Goes Online For the First Time
via Xbox LiveR

Santa Clara, Calif., (March 23, 2007) - Leading video games developer and
publisher NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., announced today that the newest
installment in its supreme Ace Combat Series, Ace CombatR 6: Fires of
Liberation, will be bringing the next generation of intense aerial combat to
the battlefield worldwide later this year (Release date for European version
is TBD) for the Xbox 360T video game and entertainment system from
Microsoft. Online for the first time, via Xbox LiveR, players will be able
to experience Ace Combat on a massive worldwide scale as it features an
in-depth multi-player online experience that includes a variety of
action-packed online modes.

Worldwide online domination is only the beginning in Ace Combat 6: Fires of
Liberation as the next-gen processing power of the Xbox 360 allows players
to witness high definition, photo-realistic landscapes scream past their
cockpits as they issue commands with split-second precision to land, sea and
air vehicles for an all out triple-attack on the enemy in the "The Allied
Support System". In this new feature, players will be able to fight
alongside fighter planes, gun ships, attack helicopters, tanks, naval
fleets, heavy bombers, and electronic warfare vessels in the ultimate Ace
Combat showdown.

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation takes air combat warfare to new heights as
it boasts the new "Dynamic Operation System" where massive battles unfold on
a "living battlefield," as up to six independent land, sea or air conflicts
can break out at any time at multiple locations as allies and enemies clash
in real-time. Players can experience the realism of war when battlefields
come alive with engagingly authentic audio and visual effects: thundering
explosions, dense vapor trails of air to air missiles, piercing machine gun
fire, booming anti-aircraft artillery fire, mid-air explosions, gigantic
columns of black smoke and more.

In Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, players can prove their supremacy on a
global scale as they pilot highly detailed, authentic aircraft such as the
F-15 E Strike Eagle and the F-22 Raptor online via Xbox Live. For an all out
worldwide battle for the sky, players can choose from a variety of different
online modes including the death match and team death match style game
modes. Or they can team up with friends to play in co-op, where players
combine strategy and skill to work together to take on computer-controlled
adversaries. Online rankings are calculated globally with high-ranking
players being granted honorable titles on a global scale, adding fuel to the
fires of furious competition.

Starting today, fans will have the chance to get a taste of what's to come
in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation, as a variety of different icons, art
and decals straight from the game are now available to download via the Xbox
Live Marketplace. Downloads will include the Ace Combat 6 Picture Pack
which includes a collection of 4 emblems from the game that can be added to
fan's profiles. Stunning concept art and detailed decals of some of the
planes features in the game will also be available.

Experience the war torn drama of Ace Combat like never before in Ace Combat
6: Fires of Liberation. With 10-million copies of the Ace Combat Franchise
sold worldwide, Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation will single handedly
redefine the entire Flight Action genre on the next generation console
system, and continue its absolute domination when it flies onto store
shelves in 2007. Visit <http://acecombat.namco.com/>
