The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces will start shipping to retailers across America January 12th, 2010 for the suggested retail price of $29.99.

The somber story of a world that needs war to survive, based on a novel series by Hiroshi MORI and adapted into an animated film directed by Mamoru Oshii and released by Sony Pictures in the US, is told with a combination of animated cut-scenes and voiced in-game sequences during battle. Players take on the role of a rookie pilot new to the combat pilot group known as the Sky Crawlers.  Dog-fighting simulation and flight is mirrored by a unique gameplay mechanic; players hold the Nunchuk in the right hand as the flight control stick, tilted to roll, pitch, and yaw, while the Wii Remote, acting as the throttle, is held in the left hand and is tilted up to accelerate and down to decelerate.

The Wii exclusive air combat game was developed by the Project ACES team of Ace Combat fame and is rated T for Teen.  The retail release comes with reversible cover art so that fans of the animated movie may flip the cover to reveal the same front boxart as the Japanese release.  Fans are encouraged to visit the newly launched official site at
