The PSP certainly has its fair share of racing titles, and it even has a couple great air combat games, but as of yet no one has mixed the genres on Sony's portable. Sierra Entertainment aims to change all that with M.A.C.H., the system's first air combat/racing game that's set to launch this February. M.A.C.H., short for Modified Air Combat Heroes, is currently in the final stages of production at UK-based developer Kuju Entertainment.
M.A.C.H.'s prologue is as follows: "In the year 2049, the governments of the world switched to unmanned aircraft for combat in an attempt to save lives. By doing so, they decommissioned thousands of jets and their fighter pilots, ironically destroying the livelihood of those they were trying to save. Years later, these planes appeared on the black market and were sold to the highest bidders. It wasn't long before an underground emerged, featuring ex-fighter pilots, smugglers and wealthy hobbyists piloting the decommissioned aircraft. In a competition of fight and flight, these pilots heavily modify their jet fighters to outrace and outduel the competition to win fame, glory and fortune. Welcome to the world of M.A.C.H."
The game will feature 11 different planes and a number of customizable parts that totals 180 different configurations. Aside from the quick play Arcade, progression-oriented Career and Multiplayer modes, you'll also be able to select from a number of tests in the Challenge mode. Each tier here will be made up of five different challenges, namely MACH Melée, MACH Dash, Time Check, MACH LAP and Dog Tag.
Up to eight players will be able to take to the skies in multiplayer sessions via Ad-Hoc, and Game Sharing support is also planned.
That's all the information we have on the game for now, but as its release is just around the corner, you can expect much more soon.
