After acquiring licence after licence, is this Konami’s year to hit back at a stuttering FIFA 20?

PES  has trailed the FIFA franchise for some time, and they lost further ground last year, with FIFA 19 snatching the UEFA Champions League and Europa League licenses off Konami. 

PES 2020 marks a fresh start however, and with EA Sports struggling throughout the year with FIFA 19, it is a massive opportunity for Pro Evo to claw back some ground on their biggest rival.

With this the biggest release for PES this decade, the publishers and developers have been keeping their cards close to their chest. RealSport has a look at everything we know so far on PES, and what the community wants to see when the game is released this summer.

Release

PES 2020 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC Steam on September 10, 2019 (Americas/Europe) / September 12 (Asia). Lionel Messi will feature as the cover star for the standard edition, priced at £59.99, and players can also get their hands on the digital exclusive Legend Edition, featuring Brazilian icon Ronaldinho for £79.99.

Other bonuses of the Legend Edition include an exclusive 3D-scanned 2019 version of Ronaldinho and Messi on a 10-match loan for myClub. Everyone who pre-orders either digital edition of the game will get Andres Iniesta and 1,000 myClub coins on top.
