KONAMI Secures Premier Argentinian Football Association License to Pro Evolution Soccer Series
Famed Soccer Series to Feature 20 AFA Primera División Teams and Regional Announcers to Create the Most Authentic Soccer Experience
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. today announced an agreement with the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) to bring the 20 AFA Primera División Teams and some of the corresponding home stadiums into PES 2014. KONAMI has also secured local Argentinian FOX Sports announcers, Mariano Closs and Fernando Niembro for the series. Some of the premier teams that will be included are River Plate, Boca Juniors, Newell's Old Boys and Racing.
The Pro Evolution Soccer series holds a wide range of soccer licenses from around the world, including Europe's premier club competition, the UEFA Champions League, and the AFC Champions League. Since its inception, the series has enjoyed wide-ranging acclaim worldwide, and the addition of highly-regarded AFA Primera División Teams will help further extend its range and resonation with football fans around the world. This new agreement with the AFA brings the following 20 Primera División Teams and some of the home stadiums to PES 2014 at launch.
The 20 Primera División teams included in PES 2014 include:
Atlético de Rafaela
Gimnasia y Esgrima
Newell's Old Boys
PES 2014 marks a new beginning for the popular series, with its new FOX engine allowing for the most comprehensive advance in the PES franchise since its inception. For years, the PES Productions Team has looked at how matches ebb and flow to develop a new approach to football. As a result, PES 2014 will use Kojima Production's renowned Fox Engine at its core. Six central tenets (M.A.S.S., TrueBall Tech, Heart, PES ID, Team Play and Core) combine to establish PES 2014 as a new benchmark in football simulations. They govern everything from the way the player receives and controls the ball, the physicality of play, and the "feel" of match-day: the rush and euphoria or crushing lows that experiencing an important game can bring.
PES 2014 will be available on PlayStation®3, Xbox 360®, Windows PC and and PSP®(PlayStation®Portable).
