Australia, April 7, 2009 - Konami today announced PES 2010, and boldly stated that it "will benefit from the most exhaustive raft of new features in the series' history, with every aspect of the game benefiting from key improvements." The game is coming on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PSP, PS2 and mobile phones this Australian Spring / American Autumn.

PES Productions, the Tokyo-based development team, is setting out to make this the most realistic football simulation available, with player feedback a key part of the process. "We have been monitoring feedback and comments on the progression of the PES series for some time now, and PES 2010 will see us implementing a great deal of the ideas players have been requesting," commented Naoya Hatsumi, Producer for PES Productions at Konami Digital Entertainment Japan. "We aim to make PES 2010 a more user-friendly, immediate experience that places the emphasis on getting straight into the gameplay for which the series is famed. PES 2010 will look better, will play better, and will recreate real football as closely as the current hardware will allow."

The team has expanded for development of PES 2010, with the creation of a number of dedicated departments focused on different aspects of the game, such as online. The key additions/changes to the game are:

* Gameplay: "PES 2010 focuses on enhancing the excitement of matches between players, making for a truly challenging experience that will constantly test the player. Intuitive zonal defending will cover spaces and players need to look constantly for new ways to attack. PES 2010 focuses on being a real football simulation, as it requires both strategic play and quick reactions, as in real life. In addition to key out-field elements, goalkeepers are more versatile and with abilities matching those of modern shot-stoppers. The game's referees have also been reworked, with smarter AI elements allowing them to make more balanced calls during matches."

* Improved Visuals: "PES 2010 has undergone a major visual revamp, with its celebrated player likenesses and animations now even closer to those of real-life players – including live player expressions to be depicted with an improved lighting system which differentiates between various conditions! Stadium detail is also massively improved, with the grass and other in-stadium elements finely depicted."

* All-new Animations and Moves: "Animations now dovetail into each other seamlessly, with dribbling and shots on goals worked into dribbling animations. More individual skills are also on show, including new flicks and tricks that have a definite showing on the way a game flows. Several elements have been completely reworked, with the dribbling, turning and kicking animations greatly enhanced, while there is a noticeable change in pace when a player passes a ball from a standing position than from within a run."

* Enhanced Master League: "Master League has been thoroughly renewed with the enhancement of managerial aspects, which enables users to enjoy managing a team for a longer career lifespan. Seen by many as a key contributor to the series' success, the Master League elements in PES 2010 have been bolstered by far-ranging and vital new additions, dedicated to enriching the mode."

* AI: "The Tokyo team has worked to improve the AI of the game, with Teamvision 2.0 implemented. Midfielders and defenders now work together to cover open space and close down attacks, meaning that cover can be provided for lower-ranked defenders. This also has the additional effect of removing soft goals, thus returning PES 2010 to its simulation roots. In terms of attacking, players can also now move several players (at) once, sending them into different areas, opening up more goal-scoring possibilities than ever before. As such, PES 2010 necessitates a new level of control from the player. Strategic thinking is as important as quick passing, but the new system greatly opens the way the player oversees control of the team. In free kick scenarios, for instance, players can now instigate the runs of the players awaiting the ball in the penalty area."

* Individual Play Characteristics: "In previous PES games, the team formation has determined the movements of the players. PES 2010 introduces a new system wherein the individual attacking and defending nature of the players is integral to the way they play. Each player enjoys unique AI tied into their best abilities, and is reflected in the actions of their team mates – i.e. if a player who is known to be a good crosser of the ball is in possession, more players will flood the penalty area to receive it. Similarly, if a player is known to be good with close control, defenders will work to cover their stronger side, while lone strikers will be automatically supported by midfielders on receipt of the ball."

* Strategy Use: "A new power gauge system allows users to balance their strategy in a quick, but wide-ranging way before a match. Every element – pass frequency, movement, the line of defence, width of play, or the position of the front line – can be altered to match those of a favoured club: Juventus Turin are a dangerous side on the counter-attack, for instance, while FC Barcelona use width in their attack. These formulations can be altered at any point, too, with Home and Away matches forcing different circumstances on the user, as does the rigours of a Master League season."

* Enhanced Online: "A new dedicated section of the Tokyo team is committed to improving the online side of PES 2010. More downloadable content is also planned. Konami has supported PES 2009 with the release of new licensed teams, transfer updates, etc, and this support will grow for PES 2010. Team and content updates are planned throughout the game's lifespan. These will make the game even more bespoke to the player's match day needs."

* Match-Day Atmosphere: "Crowd reactions to the on-field action are now more varied, with all new chants and cheers. The subtle difference between Home and Away matches will be reproduced, and the crowd will react spontaneously to specific situations in a game, showing their disdain or pleasure as fouls are committed and goals scored. Likewise, the commentary has been altered to offer a fresher, more concise overview of the game."

* Penalties: "An all-new system has been implemented, offering greater control, placing and accuracy."

* Exclusive Europa League License: "Konami has strengthened its relationship with UEFA and can announce it has secured the exclusive video game rights for the Europa League Licence (formerly known as the UEFA Cup). In addition Konami will be enhancing and developing the use of the UEFA Champions League within PES 2010 to make even better use of the best club football competition in the world."

They're gonna have a real tough time bettering Fifa. Fifa 09 was by far the best football game ever made and 2010 will only improve on the many things they got right. The graphics and gameplay are just miles ahead...I doubt Konami have a chance.

All sounds promising but they really are going to have to pull something out of the hat for them to better FIFA 09 never mind FIFA 10. I'll give it a chance because I really want to like PES, it as a soft spot in my heart.

No matter how much I try to like FIFA (Note not love but just to like) I still much prefer PES. These enhancements only look to be for the greater good and I for one will be waiting eagerly on launch day.

FIFA never clicked with me and if Konami can sort out the online I will be ecstatic.

Translation: Putting the camera inside the post didn't work out so well last time, so this time we are gonna put it inside the ball.

Don't worry about it. Self-harmers don't have as much of a stigma these days and there are all sorts of help available. See your GP.

It's back to normal for 2009. :unsure:

I believe it is the FIFA guys who have the bigger problem. EA have gotten you in their grasps with their voodoo trickery. It is not real, it is all an illusion. FIFA is not superior, you have been brain washed! :wub:

We don't bother with PES anymore do we? I didnt even pick up the box for 09, and I was a huge fan.

I have trouble with this statement. It implies following the masses and a sheeplike behaviour. How about just having your own mind?!

Well, I'm going to be an optimist and look forward to FIFA actually having some competition this year.

I think the problem is that the gap between PES and FIFA was so big this year that konami would need to start from scratch to even come close. Not only that EA will have an improved (hopefully) version out around the same time. PES doesn't really stand a chance. This is coming for a fan who loved pes6.

The game is coming on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, PSP, PS2 and mobile phones

Until they drop the PS2 the game will stay stuck in the last gen.

All new penalty system? How about just bring back the 10 year old penalty system from ISS 98, that was perfect.

Edit: Slightly hypocritical I know.

I've normally gone for PES at launch then wait for impressions of Fifa but will be the other way round this year after the letdown of the online modes of the last 2 Konami efforts.

The press releases they do just seem the same every year - Improved AI, graphics and gameplay...............

Well the PES 09 thread had tumbleweed blowing through it on release date last year, suggesting hardly anyone bothers with it anymore, what with it being shit now.

Slightly?! :unsure:

PES peaked with WE6FE on the GC, after that they removed analogue movement, which they still haven't brought back in, which is ridiculous!

I can't believe we're still stuck with 8-way movement in 2009! (Although the same goes for FIFA09 obv, though the rest of FIFA09 is far better than PES)

That's precisely what they have needed to do for years now.

I totally love FIFA 09, and can't wait to see what EA pull out for FIFA 10, but I'm still interested to see where Konami go from here. It's clear that they know they have lost a lot of support over the past two years, and to be fair this press release is different to previous ones; it looks to me like they're acknowledging that big changes are needed. Whether it's just PR guff or there's actually some substance remains to be seen, but there's no doubt that we need good competition in the genre: arguably it was the poor quality of earlier FIFAs that led to the complacency at Konami and subsequent demise of the PES series.
