Ace Combat 7's E3 trailer showcases high-flying combat and awkward wording


Dick jokes! PC Gamer has the story.

Quote:
People in my Twitter feed were joking about the new trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown today, saying it had the funniest opening line ever. I didn't get it. "Do you wonder what it means to be a prisoner here?" is anything but amusing. Then I found out that I was watching the wrong trailer.

The trailer on Bandai's Japanese YouTube channel (and embedded above) is narrated slightly differently: "How penal is this penal unit, you ask? This place is a shithole." The "penal" homonym launched, if not a thousand, then at least two or three snickering dick jokes.

Ace Combat 7 is an arcade flight sim that combines real (visually, at least) modern-day fighters with a fantasy world of nations at war. The new trailer expands upon the setting of the new game somewhat by explaining, indirectly, that you have been sentenced to a penal (snicker) colony, where for some reason prisoners are put behind the stick of multi-million-dollar aircraft and sent out to do battle.

We just lost an F15 over Okinawa last week. Pilot ejected and will be okay, but the jet was lost to the sea.
