Heroes of the Pacific Takeoff Tomorrow

Let the epic air battles commence - Heroes of the Pacific cleared for take off! (thanks Frans) announces that Heroes of the Pacific will ship tomorrow, when the World War II aerial combat game will be available for PC, Xbox, and PS2. Accompanying the announcement is the release of a new launch trailer for the game, which can be found on the Codemasters Website (registration required), with one or more of the various versions of the clip mirrored on 3D Gamers and FileFront. Here's a bit from the release announcement:
From exhilarating head-to-head dog-fighting with huge numbers of enemy aircraft, bombing aircraft carriers to mounting massive attacks on land-based targets, Heroes of the Pacific delivers full on aerial combat adrenaline that gets you up close and personal with the Japanese air force and navy.

Beginning with the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, the game’s epic and enthralling story line unfolds through 26 missions taken from real events of the U.S. Air Force campaign in the Pacific.

Battles take place in hotspots such as Pearl Harbor, Leyte and Imo Jima. You’ll need all your courage and ace flying skills to dodge the intense enemy fire when you come under attack with up to 150 planes filling the skies in a single confrontation!

As opposed to Sci-Fi? Fantasy?

You really can't compare broad settings like sci-fi and fantasy to WW2. WW2 took place in a specific time period, with specific sides (Allies, Axis) and specific locations. Sci-fi and fantasy, on the other hand, are specific only in their general requirements. Sci-fi is fantasy based on science, whereas regular fantasy deviates entirely from reality.
