ILCA is a Japanese game and CG development company established in 2010. It is currently known for working on Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. The company also helped develop the Pokemon Home app.

ILCA had previously helped Bandai Namco and Project Aces in developing Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The former produced the game’s environment and cinematic scenes. This video revealed that ILCA will have a more prominent role in the new game’s development.

The video also revealed that Project Aces is still working on adding more content to Ace Combat 7. A free update that adds multiplayer stage music and aircraft skins from the Japan Air Self-Defense Force will arrive on August 31, 2021. Bandai Namco will also release two more paid DLC packs at a later time.

On August 7, 2021, Bandai Namco held Ace Combat The Symphony orchestra concert physically with a limited audience in Tokyo. It has also confirmed plans to hold a paid streaming of the archived concert in the near future.

The latest title in the series, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, is immediately available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
