Atari has opened its hangars and wheeled out a whole army of fresh aircraft for Ace Combat 6.

The most expensive of them is The Idolmaster Miki pack, based around the Japanese 360 game The Idolmaster, where you play as a producer and coach nine young pop idols to stardom. Miki Hoshii is the first of the characters to sign-up for flight school, and brings with her an impressive Su-33 fighter plane - probably has rich parents. Get a load of her for 400 Points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.65). But not like that, she's 14.

Following her are the manoeuvrable F-16C Fighting Falcon with Windhover Squadron colours; outrageously fast Mirage2000-5 Experimental beast; heavily armed A-10A ThunderBolt II with essential shark mouth; spooky F-14D Super Tomcat with jack-o'-lantern paint job; light-weight F-15E Strike Eagle with something called active stripes; and sure-footed, er, winged F-16C from Ace Combat 2. Each will lighten your wallet by 200 Points (GBP 1.70 / EUR 2.33).

One craft is free, though, the well protected F-16C Fighting Falcon - part of the mercenary tactical strike force Scarface. Smutty plane porn for those who know what the numbers and letters mean, then.

Ace Combat 6 is out in Europe today and comes thoroughly recommended by us. Pop over to our review to find out why.
