The trailer up top was released by Namco Bandai to announce the newest title in the Ace Combat series of flight-action games, called Infinity.

It looks like the game will be centered around a global apocalypse of some sort, brought on by an asteroid. A chronometer also appears briefly, flashing from 1869 to 2019, perhaps giving us a hint about the timeframe Infinity takes place in.

Currently, Ace Combat Infinity has been announced only for the PS3 in Japan. No word on a release date, neither Western nor Japanese, just yet.

Here's a bunch of screengrabs for you folks to speculate about:
