This is a placeholder page for the article that covers the production information, description, story, missions, mechanics, parts, general concepts, and all other information directly related to this game. Please use this page as a guide.

This header section should contain any production information regarding the game that this article is named after, as well as the console or consoles it was released on. Consider listing any abbreviations it may use.


While a direct sequel to AC2, AC2AA takes place on Earth, instead of Mars. The mechanics stay largely the same, and the Parts Library gets a boost in size. There is no longer an actual arena, but occasionally an 'arena mission'.

A new mode was introduced called Versus Mission. Two players can bring their ACs into a list of very few missions, and compete to complete the objective first, sometimes putting each other directly against each other. A prime example would be the mission Pursue the Train, where one player must defend the train the other player must destroy. The VS Mission Arena is more passive, where both players are pitted against one other Raven in their own room, but can enter the other's room and assist them if they so pleased, or kill them.

bluh bluh explanations stuffs This section should contain a basic description of what the game is about. The picture, sound, and CG quality should be mentioned.

This section should contain any story elements that the players will know about when starting the game or within one half-hours worth of playing the game. Do not comment on the resolution of major events or main characters!

Major Characters

Comment on the amount of characters and whether they are solidly or weakly presented. When listing characters, first list any major corporations or superpowers that are key to the story then make a separate list any major characters and their biography beneath that. Do not list anything that happens to them over the course of the game!


  • Government Agency - A major superpower that regulates the corporations to protect the welfare of the populace.
  • Major Company - A company that produces AC parts and is trying to take over the world.
  • Minor Company - The people who probably make the best parts in the game.


  • Protagonist - The player character. Who is this person? What is known about them?
  • Operator - The person who updates the Protagonist's information during missions. What is known about this person?
  • Random AC Pilot - Why should he be mentioned in this article?


General comments on any major traits of the games engine or of the games concepts should be made here. Don't forget default control scheme options and usability of those control schemes. Also, any major differences between the mechanics of this game and the mechanics of previous installments, or latter installments, of the Armored Core series should be listed.


This section is for commenting on the special features of the game engine, such as Bugs and Glitches. Also, it is for listing and commenting on the formulas that the game uses for determining booster speed, damage reduction, energy regeneration, etc.


General commentary on the missions and their layouts, entertainment value, and difficulty can be made here. Also, give the total mission count available in the game.

Versus Missions

A mode that only appeared in AC2AA, VS Missions put two players in one of eight available missions. A full list of them can be found here NIJI MAKE THIS PAGE.

The goal of VS Missions is to, like all missions, complete the given objective, sometimes putting each other directly against each other. A prime example would be the mission Pursue the Train, where one player must defend the train the other player must destroy. The opposite would be Defend the Train's Cargo, where both players are hired to defend a train caboose from an attack by The Indies.
