KONAMI RELEASES NEW DETAILS FOR PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2011 ON NINTENDO 3DS™

KONAMI today announced new details for its eagerly awaited version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 on the Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 on 3DS utilizes the cutting-edge technology the new system affords as the game puts you at the heart of every pass, through-ball, and shot. An active‘Player’ camera centers on the user’s every movement, dynamically following the action. This makes for an intense recreation of being a key part of a successful soccer team. Realism is literally taken to another level thanks to the game’s incredible use of depth and distance perception. The camera views on the 3DS allow the user to visually ascertain how far away other teammates are thus enabling more instinctive long passes and dynamic movement.

The game’s stunning AI also ensures that players not only look identical to their real-life counterparts, but move and react like them too.
