KONAMI will be outlining full details of myPES at this year’s gamescom in Cologne, where the game will be available for the public to play for the first time. “User feedback is vital in the development of the PES series,” commented Jon Murphy, European PES Team Leader. “As such, we are very excited about the possibilities myPES will bring, and look forward to fully explaining it in Cologne.”

“Pro Evolution Soccer is such an iconic brand and it is fantastic to be working so closely with the development team for myPES,” commented Maik Hofmann, Unit Director for argonauten G2 . “What we have planned will open new frontiers to players of PES 2012 and how they play the game, and we are very excited about showing what we have achieved at this year’s gamescom event.”

PES 2012 will be released for PlayStation® 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC on October 14th, with versions to follow for Wii, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) and PlayStation®2. For more information contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 020 7502 4462 or via steve@voltagepr.com .
