Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy + features twelve aircraft based on Nintendo characters and Pac-Man. Six of these are accessed by finding and destroying a Question Block within missions, and are:
Additionally, using amiibos from the Super Smash Bros. line will unlock additional aircraft. Mario (or Dr. Mario), Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Donkey Kong and Pac-Man (released on April 24, 2015) amiibo will unlock the respective aircraft from above, plus an extra skin for the same aircraft; amiibo for Link (or Toon Link), Zelda (or Sheik), Samus (or Zero Suit Samus), Fox, Captain Falcon and Olimar (released on July 17, 2015) will respectively unlock:
- F-14D <LINK>
- F-15SE <ZELDA>
- YF-23 <SAMUS ARAN>
- ADF-01 <STARFOX>
- F-16C <CAPTAIN FALCON>
- F-4E <PIKMIN & OLIMAR>
Due to how the amiibo technology works, these special aircaft can also be unlocked using amiibos representing the same characters, but released later in series different than the Super Smash Bros. one; still, the game was created with the Super Smash Bros. amiibo specifically in mind, so compatibility of subsequent lines can be considered an unnotable incidental link.
In an agreement between Nintendo and Bandai Namco, Nintendo-exclusive content was included in the game. Pac-Man is owned by Bandai Namco, so they could freely include elements from that series in Ace Combat.
