New Ace Combat dated for October

More news from Namco Bandai’s Dubai press event: the oil-splattering Ace Combat: Assault Horizon has a lock on October as its touchdown date. Specifically, look for the reboot starting October 11th in North America and and the 14th in Europe. It’s in development for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Those who pre-order or pick it up on day one can count on a few extra goods as well — a steelbook, a DVD, soundtrack, notebook and exclusive DLC — at no extra cost over the standard edition.

Another upcoming Namco title, the From Software-developed Dark Souls, is also out in October, as revealed by a new trailer yesterday.
