    1. Definitely! In the past, the game media simply ignored Ace Combat games and now its latest game, Skies Unknown, has completely replaced New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe as the best-selling video game in Japan amidst January. And as always, the Ace Combat games have been the “Dark Souls” of combat flight simulation games. This franchise has been underrated for many years. The series has fantastic titles like Ace Combat 5 and 6, and 7 will definitely boost the series more.

    2. Look at his shirt print, BIG SPOILER for Mario Odyssey and nobody at that time even knew about that game because it was all about Breath of the Wild.

      I always analyze his shirts at E3 or other events because he always spoils/ Easter egg something with the prints

      And what the hell is with that dude on the left, look at his tongue, goes wildly left and right.
      I bet he is very good at things.
