TRIVIA

Released in March 1995 in Japan.

This game was named Air Combat 22 because it ran on Namco's Super System 22 hardware.

The game has heavily influenced the Bandai Namco franchise/sequel; Ace Combat. Ace Combat's developers still admire Air Combat 22.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Namco Video Game Graffiti Vol.18 - VICL-15040) on 25/05/1995.
