PES 2010 heads to the App Store!

Konami Digital Entertainment has announced it is to bring its hugely popular Pro Evolution Soccer series to iPhone and iPod touch, with PES 2010 set to arrive in June.

Already a massive success on home gaming systems, the iPhone/iPod touch version has been created by Konami’s Parisian development studio and has been designed to set new standards for the football genre on these devices. PES 2010 will centre on stunning 3D visuals to recreate the intensity of match-day action and will use a variety of all-new, innovative control interfaces.

The Pro Evolution Soccer series is renowned for its intuitive and realistic gameplay, and stunning AI and physics routines. PES 2010 for iPhone and iPod touch will share such elements, ensuring all the slick passing, first-time shots, and mazy runs that the existing versions enjoy are faithfully recreated. Similarly, this new handheld version of PES 2010 will also include key game modes, including UEFA Champions LeagueTM and UEFA Europa LeagueTM elements.

“To bring a game as complex and as playable as PES 2010 to iPhone and iPod touch has been a daunting challenge, but one that has paid off,” commented Axel de Rougé, Producer of PES 2010 for iPhone/iPod touch, for Konami Digital Entertainment.“We have been working to ensure that all the slick moves and control– not to mention strong AI and aesthetic touches– that are associated with the series, have been recreated. We are confident we have produced the best football game available for the Apple systems, and look forward to its reception in June.”

PES 2010 for iPhone and iPod touch follows Konami’s well-received iPES app for the format. iPES - The Fan App offers a series of challenges and tests based on elements in the PES series, but PES 2010 will mark the eagerly awaited football series’ first full debut on iPhone and iPod touch.

PES 2010 will be released for iPhone and iPod touch in June. For more information or assets, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 020 7903 5122 or email steve@voltagepr.com.
