Thanks to a heads up by our good friend VizionGamer via our twitter feed, we have learnt of the release of the English translation for Ace Combat 3 on the Playstation 1 by Team NEMO. You probably haven't heard of this game before, that's because the better version was released in Japan in 1999 as Ace Combat 3 : Electrosphere; an arcade air combat game by Namco. The problem was with the game and according to romhacking, the original story was altered and the characters were cut from the NTSC-U and PAL regions. Now thanks to Team Nemo the original Japanese game is back as it should be, but this time all 52+ missions are now in English!
Ace Combat 3 is notable for its branching story-line spread across two discs, 5 different endings, high-quality graphics, a futuristic soundtrack and, last but not least, anime cut-scenes by Production I.G (Patlabor 2, Ghost in the Shell). The first mission features localization work done by Guest Localizer Agness Kaku (Metal Gear Solid 2, D2).
