Impossibly gorgeous "leaked" Famitsu images (WTF?!)

What in GOD's name is going on here. These images just appeared on 2ch with no explanation. They appear to be leaked images from an upcoming issue of Famitsu, and indeed closely adhere to that magazine's style.

They seem to be previews for three (!) upcoming games from Namco's Project Aces, of Ace Combat fame. The area for system is blanked out.

What could this possibly be about? Is it a hoax? If so, it deserves attention for being fantastically well done :D

Edit: Ace Combat fans will notice many, many series story references in these shots. If they are fake, someone is a huge Ace Combat fan.

Edit 2: Theory: The images are mockups for an internal Namco presentation, designed to look like Famitsu pages, perhaps to be pitched to marketing. Under this theory, only one of these games will go into production.

Edit 3: An identical character model has been found in an Ace Combat 6 screenshot. Confirmation these images originate from Project Aces?

Edit 4: Image links changed, thanks Lost Fragment.

Not one of those images looks real time or anything on any platform. Cool "fake" if fake, interesting if real.

Service Unavailable for the pics. What are they of? Ace Combat? what
BlueTsunami, it's like looking into video games that only exist in the afterlife --as if someone from a future world came to our time and gave us the gift of completely awesome gaming nirvana.

EDIT - Okay well it was like that.

On a scale of Duke Nukem Forever to Gran Turismo Portable, I give these shots a Metroid Dread.

If you look at official Ace Combat 6 cutscene images, the style is nearly identical. Looks like it's made by the same folks indeed. WTF is this though? Interactive ace combat 6 cutscenes?

Same blonde haired guy looks to be in all three if you look closely. Seems like it's part of the same project/game/movie.

I very much doubt it but imagine if just one of the screens was from a Wii game.
You just blew my mind. Or imagine if they were from a Colecovision game. My weekend is blown.

Somebody tell me you saved them, or this will be classified like a UFO sighting.

edit: They do exist..

The images are down, not MINUTES after they were posted. I have them saved, can anyone recommend a good free image hosting service? Will repost.
