Namco Bandai's announced a summer release for PSP game Ace Combat Joint Assault.
This is developer Project Aces' second attempt on PSP after Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception in 2006. As such, numerous improvements have been made. And chief among them is online multiplayer, where eight pilots can battle against each other, or four friends can fly together through the campaign mode. Hence the name.
There's also a new Enhanced Combat View, plus promises of smarter AI, which apparently evolves missions based on the choices you make. On top of all that are smarter graphics and a more accessible design.
