New Heroes of the Pacific screens, footage

Planes, planes and, erm, planes zip around the skies in Codemasters' WWII air-combat experience

Tally-ho! And, indeed, chocks away! Codemasters has released new media from its air-combat title Heroes of the Pacific that's bound to have a few wannabe fighter aces waggling joysticks in anticipation. 16 new screenshots are accompanied by a trailer showcasing numerous period aircraft that are gracing the WWII title. It's all enough to put our propellers in a spin.

Heroes of the Pacific features 35 aircraft of the period and oodles of dogfighting, and kicking of with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the game's storyline then continues to relate several key encounters in the U.S. Navy's campaign in the Pacific. 26 missions take us through famous confrontations in such locations as Midway Island, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal.


In development for PC, PS2 and Xbox, Heroes of the Pacific dive bombs stores in September.
