It's Ace Combat's great pumpkin DLC, Charlie Brown!

We think Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is pretty cool, but even after release Namco continued deluging us with media, which had the unfortunate effect of dulling our interest in any of it. We can only look at so many pictures of airplanes!

... is what we thought yesterday. Today, Namco sent us screens from the new DLC, coming out October 25. This is the airplane screenshot to get us interested in airplane screenshots again. That's the special "Halloween Pumpkin" color scheme for the F-14D Super Tomcat. The DLC includes another special color scheme, along with an entirely new support fighter, but neither of those have pumpkins on them.%Gallery-137126%
