Default Ace Combat Assault Legacy Horizon plus controls.

Hi. I'm new here, and new to 3ds gaming.
All going well I should get my New 3ds XL in the mail tomorrow.
I've been looking at games to download out of the eshop, and Ace Combat ALH+ looks really good, but I have a query.
How do the planes fly? Looking around, and reading the reviews for the original game released back in 2011, it seems that the planes have an arcade flight control scheme. Something similar to Heatseeker on the Wii or Deck Elevens Wings of Steel (Android). Is that the case?
Or do you have full stick and rudder control, just like in the console versions. Do you have manual control over roll, pitch and yaw?
How it controls will influence whether I buy it or not.
EDIT. I have purchase Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy +, and it does have a classic control scheme.
The circle pad controls roll and pitch. ZL and ZR control yaw . Z and R for throttle. And the C stick to look around.
Great Little game, I'm having a lot of fun with it.

It has both control schemes. There's a more casual one like what you described and then the classic Ace Combat controls.

I've also been interested in this game. I've played the Ace Combat games on Playstation and one on Xbox. I love the games. Once you receive it and play it for a while, give us a review. I'd be interested in reading it.

So what is the difference between this "+" version and the original? Just added support for CPP controls and that's it? No extras? Doesn't sound very "+" to me, I already own the original. Seems like a waste to release a whole new physical copy instead of some kind of update/patch. And it screws people who bought it the first time. Namco expects us to pay for the same game twice? How are they let off the hook here?
