Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 will be released on October 17th for PlayStation 3, and comes complete with a fully-licensed UEFA Champions League mode, MCV can reveal.
Konami has also fired a warning shot at rival EA, insisting that Pro Evolution Soccer is still far superior to the FIFA franchise.
“It is all very well for EA to say that FIFA is making great strides, but general opinion suggests that they still have a long way to go before they can match the intuitive and absorbing gameplay of Pro Evolution Soccer,” said Konami’s PES team leader Jon Murphy.
“That is not to say that we are resting on our laurels, though. PES 2009 has a vast number of new additions that elevate it far beyond anything anyone else is doing.”
Konami has secured the Champions League licence for four years, which allows the firm to use all the elements and attributes of the popular competition within PES.
The publisher has also signed agreements with Premier League clubs Liverpool and Manchester United, giving it permission to use the players, kits and logos from both teams in the title.
