Bandai Namco announced during Gamescom 2018 that Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is getting two special branded flight sticks, one by Thrustmaster and one by Hori. More details on both joysticks have now been revealed by the respective makers.
Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas
Here’s a description of the sticks by Thrustmaster:
Something new for the players.
That’s the goal of the new Thrustmaster joysticks.
The efficiency and ease of play offered by the T.Flight Hotas range of joysticks are news to nobody, but Thrustmaster is setting the bar even higher and aims to enhance the gameplay and the gaming experience even more.
The close collaboration with the game developers behind Ace Combat allows for a full integration of the Thrustmaster joysticks that is more obvious, more precise, and more fun than ever in this latest release from the Japanese publisher.
Although it is optimized for third-person view (seen from outside the plane), it is also a pleasure to use the T.Flight Hotas 4 Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown Edition in first-person mode (view from the cockpit) for more experienced pilots.
This release is a bonanza for fans of the franchise and other flight game players, and Thrustmaster has kept its whole community in mind when releasing the two versions of the joystick:
– T.Flight Hotas 4 (for PlayStation®4)
– T.Flight Hotas One (for Xbox One®)
This may go without saying, but it’s worth making perfectly clear: the T.Flight Hotas Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown Edition joysticks will be compatible with all of the other games for which earlier versions of the joystick are also compatible.

The Ace Combat 7 compatible flight stick is currently priced at ¥19,980, and comes out on the same day as Ace Combat 7, January 18, 2019.
