As a life long ‘PES fan’ I couldn’t of been more happier with today’s news that Konami confirmed the release date for PES 2012. It will be released in Europe on 14th October 2011, two weeks after FIFA 12 is released. It will be interesting to see whether this has any bearing on sales figures, it could well be a master stroke form the Japanese developers. All I know is, I am very excited for this game.
Jon Murphy, European PES Team Leader said
“PES 2012 is a massive advance for the football genre, truly the most ambitious and advanced football game ever. The additions we have made in terms of Teammate Control, Active AI and Off the Ball Control and elevate the level of play to new heights. No other game allows users so much control over their team, and PES 2012 ensures that the days of gaps in defence and shouting at teammates to make a run are long gone. This is a very exciting time to be a PES fan, and we are delighted that we can set a firm date for football fans to mark in their calendars.”
