WATCH: Usain Bolt will feature in Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 and could be the game's new Adriano
"Lightning bolt, catch him if you can."
Anyone who had Pro Evolution Soccer 4, 5 and 6 will know about the sheer brilliance of Brazilian striker, Adriano. His pace, shot power, his strength, he had it all and if you had him on your team, you could be guaranteed the win.
It didn't matter whether you were playing in the Master Leagues or Konami Cup against the likes of Merseyside Red, Man Red or London FC, (those names bring back some memories) they wouldn't hold a candle to Adriano and Inter Milan.
It was said at the time that Konami executive Shingo 'Seabass' Takatsuka had a massive grá for the player and Inter Milan and that led to him being such a power house in the game.
Sadly, since then we haven't seen a name take the game by storm in a similar fashion to the way the Brazilian did. That is until 2018 and the introduction of Usain Bolt.
The fastest man on the planet is coming to the new edition of Pro Evolution Soccer as a pre-order bonus.

One thing for sure, you can guarantee that his speed, explosive power and stamina will all be in the high 90s which would see him make an ideal winger.
However, the Olympic Gold winner dons the number nine shirt in the game giving viewers the idea that he may play as a forward and in the YouTube clip, he is spotted firing into the back of the net adding to speculation that he could be a man that could get you 20 goals in a season.

Some fans were ecstatic to see the inclusion of the runner on the new game while others weren't so convinced about the move and thought it was irrelavant.

Used to play PES religiously at University. It's now fallen so far behind FIFA (don't play that either). No women's teams, but Usain Bolt. 🙄 https://t.co/4kUj00ljf1
