A bunch of us have decided to launch a sort of spiritual successor to Electrosphere called Encyclopedia Strangereal (also conveniently abbreviated ES). For those who are new and don't remember Electrosphere, it was basically an encyclopedia like the Ace Combat wiki, but curated by a very few people and specifically focused on Strangereal lore.
Why do this now? You can read the mission statement on the front page, but the long and short of it is: new translations! Remember all those cool in-universe magazines and shit from the official site? Those sometimes got translated, but never by anyone who spoke Japanese, so we (Gracidia and myself atm) are going through and retranslating all this shit.
We've done all the Ace Combat 04 official site material and are moving on to AC5, so stay tuned for that. Eventually we'll get to Aces at War and some of the strategy guides, which are gonna be rad since nobody has ever even attempted to translate most of that.
Anyway, I'm on record saying I think Strangereal as a coherent whole feels like a bad retcon, but some of the individual pieces here are cool as heck. Check them out.
