WATCH: The trailer for the latest Pro Evolution Soccer game is here
Say hello to eFootball PES 2020.
Last week, EA set the cat amongst the pigeons when their trailer for FIFA 20 revealed that the game would be bringing back its beloved indoor mode as well as incorporating elements of the old FIFA Street games.
Needless to say, this piled the pressure on FIFA's old rival, Pro Evolution Soccer, which is made by Japanese video game company Konami.
PES dropped their trailer today, heavily leaning on Lionel Messi, who will feature on the game's cover once more.
The trailer also features plenty of game engine footage, and hints at additions to the Master League format — where legends of the game such as Diego Maradona and the late Johan Cruyff have been added as managers. Not only that, but Ronaldinho will also be available as part of the PES Legends edition which can only be bought online.
Another Barcelona legend, Andres Iniesta, has been added as both real-life gameplay consultant and in-game MyClub pre-order bonus.
The new name - eFootball PES 2020 - seems to reference the growing culture of eSports.
The new Pro Evolution Soccer game is slated for release on September 10, 2019. Will it be able to compete with FIFA 20?
