PES Scores Rights To AFC Champions League

PES Scores Rights To AFC Champions League

32 officially licensed teams set to join the roster

Written by DavieMarshall on 26 April 13 at 17:25

Pro Evolution Soccer is true to its name if nothing else. Constantly evolving license deals have seen the somewhat comical name substitutions dwindle in iterations gone by. Today Konami have announced that they have closed a deal with the AFC Champions League to further bolster their list of 'real life' tournaments and content.

The AFC (Asian Football Confederation) Champions League is the top flight Asian club football competition with roots as far back as 1967, and Konami seem very pleased to welcome them on board. Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc, had this to say of the deal:

In an effort to show our commitment to the expansion of licenses, we have forged a new partnership with the Asian Football Confederation. We look forward to working closely with the AFC Champions League to bring fans the next level of football video gaming.The AFC roster won't just be dropped into the existing selection ad-hoc. Konami noted that the AFC will enjoy a 'dedicated mode', where players will assume control of one of 32 teams that compete in the AFC Champions League tournament. There was no specific team list included in the press release, so we assume that details and kit renders for these will be issued over time.

Why don't they just buy a license that would actually have a positive impact on sales

Cool. I don't know much about AFC teams (apart from a few Japanese, Korean, and Australian teams) but always nice to see them adding stuff.

Also, fuck the user above me.

@Rastabikerman - Considering EA has monopolised the rights to most leagues in the world it'd be hard for Konami to fix it! Personally I have always been a FIFA man but I'm buying PES 2014, not because they got licences for the AFC Champions League but because EA are disgusting.

rastabikerman said:lol. what a load of shit. they are really clutching at straws now. just give up.Great, and we'll just have no competition against FIFA and no incentive for EA to improve their game and not fill it with ripoff microtransactions. Last time EA thought they had no competition we ended up with FIFA2000, the shittest football game ever made and the only game i've ever returned in disgust for a full refund.

FYI PES is getting better again, FIFA is stagnating. If konami just included a better achievement list it would be a guaranteed purchase for me.

You know how on playstation you can install a patch to update the players and teams to be genuine?
Is that possible on the xbox?

Cos if this PES with the Fox engine turns out to be great I might have to get the PS version instead of FIFA on the xbox.

REALLY....REALLY....Your Really think getting the AFC Champions League will help shift more copies of you game an catch up to FIFA. maybe in the Asian market but im sure the rest of the world dosnt care about there league/clubs. I just put that money into making PES game engine better and the true football fans will come back.

I must admit to agreeing with Rastabikerman. I mean really what is the fucking point. I gave up playing as London United years ago.

yeah, because adding the asian league will suddenly make pes an amazing game. it wont mean anything for the vast majority of people.

I wouldn't mind playing merseyside reds or wtf those names were in pes6 if i didn't feel like i'm controlling clumsey robots. EA is a disgrace, i hate them with a passion but FIFA feels good. PES feels sh*t.
