EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - June 29, 2010 - Konami Digital Entertainment today announced its hugely popular Pro Evolution Soccer series is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch. Already a massive success on home gaming consoles, Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 will feature realistic soccer gameplay designed to set the new standard for on-the-go gaming.

"As the first full Pro Evolution Soccer iPhone title, it was important for us to deliver a rich gaming experience, while at the same time reinvigorating the franchise to suit the handheld platform," said Joe Morris, Vice President of Mobile Content and Social Networking for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 will offer challenging gameplay that tests the skills of all soccer fans."
