What does this mean for other teams?
If you are regular of the PES franchise, then you will know it is unlikely you will see Arsenal vs Everton, more like Arsenal vs Merseyside Blue. Konami struggle with licenses which has always been an issue with their game. Until they can sort this out, it is unlikely that they will really compete with EA as the frontrunner of football.
All Arsenal fan’s out there can enjoy your favourite club in full capacity on the next PES in which they promise to revolutionise the eFootball scene. Unfortunately for those who are not, you will have to wait another year to see some change.
