posted on by Egan Loo
Bandai Namco Games will offer aircraft from Kaoru Shintani's classic aerial mercenary manga Area 88 manga in its PlayStation 3 game Ace Combat Infinity from October 3 to October 14.
Player who accomplish certain mission criteria during the campaign period will receive the Area 88 aircraft, including Shin Kazama's F-20A and F-5E, Mickey Simon's F-14A, Greg Gates' A-10A, and Kim Aba's AV-8B.
Both Eclipse Comics and Viz Media published the manga in North America. The manga inspired an original video anime (OVA) series as well as a television anime series. Central Park Media released the OVA series, and ADV Films released both anime series. The manga also inspired several games, including an arcade shooter that Capcom released overseas as U.N. Squadron.
