New Video Highlights Improved Gameplay Elements

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today released a new trailer for the Wii™ version of Pro Evolution Soccer™ 2010 (PES 2010). The trailer showcases some of the new gameplay features - including the Play Energy element and the "Call for the Ball" play - that will be evident in gaming's most realistic soccer experience. The video also displays the amazing new defensive AI additions and graphics.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 Wii sees key improvements in a wide range of areas for a more realistic football experience based on feedback from the users. For those who are not familiar with the Wii version, they will find it easy-to-play while veteran users will find it challenging. PES 2010 also offers new strides in the amount of licensed content as well as in the stadium atmospheres and player likenesses.

Among new features this time, the most noticeable one is related to the free kick system. Maximizing the pointer function of the Wii remote controller, players can take aim on the goal directly. Players can also decide how far they want the ball to bend, or they could even send a "knuckle ball" shot. Additionally, PES 2010 features new "MY Team" mode, more robust online gameplay, transfer updates, and more.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 Wii version will be available in November. For more information about Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 and other Konami products, please visit the company website at www.konami.com.
