There isn’t much in the annual videogame release schedule that gets me more excited, with more assured regularity, than the autumnal football game releases. I used to be a massive advocate of Konami’s games, whether they were ISS Pro, Pro Evolution Soccer or those times I managed to secure a Winning Eleven import. In recent years, I’ve felt that EA’s FIFA games have edged ahead of their less-lavishly licensed rival but that competition is spurring Konami on to push PES more and more with every yearly release.
These videos are aimed at showing off some of the game’s modes and features as the release date edges ever closer. This first one focuses on the game modes, showing training, online modes, impressive stat tracking and elements of the career mode.
