Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Director Talks About Rebooting the Franchise

The word "reboot" when I was growing up used to be something you did to your computer when it wasn't working properly. It was either that or throw it out the window in true rock star fashion.
Fast forward 10 years - yes, I'm slightly underreporting that figure, so sue me! - and the word "reboot" now means something entirely different. Now, to "reboot" means something you say about a franchise that has been around for years and needs to get with the times.
Okay, so I'm cheating a little and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon's Director, Kazutoki Kono, actually calls the upcoming sequel a rebirth of the franchise... but that didn't work as well for the intro. You say tom-ay-toe, I say tom-ahh-toe. Just watch the damn video will ya'?
Before you watch it though... it's funny what Kono says, because his words mirror the words of HAWX 2's Creative Director when we caught up with him last month... and we all know how that turned out. Especially the part about long distance combat.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is rebooting next year.
