PES 2020: Konami just got the Man United license and FIFA fans are terrified

Konami unveil their latest partner in the build up to PES 2020 - 13-time Premier League champions Manchester United.

Konami has acquired the rights to Manchester United in PES 2020

Today Konami have announced Manchester United as a new official partner for PES 2020. This is the first time in three years that the Red Devils will be fully licensed on the game, joining a growing list of clubs that already features Spanish giants Barcelona& Premier League opponents Arsenal. 

This means the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and David de Gea have all been fully scanned for the upcoming game, while Old Trafford is also back and looking better than ever. Legend David Beckham will also be available as a classic player in the game, after featuring as a cover star last year

Man Red no more

Created using state-of-the-art technology, the game boasts the most detailed recreation of the club’s famous Old Trafford stadium seen yet. The United fans will also be able to pick up a copy of the latest PES game with their own club edition, available September 10th. 

Diogo Dalot, Scott McTominay and Victor Lindelof, all keen gamers in the United squad, attended today’s launch event, where Konami projected life-sized holograms of their in-game characters on to the stage.
