Konami Digital Entertainment Limited is proud to announce that eFootball PES 2020 formobile will officially launch on iOS and Android from October 24th. For mobile fans, the major update will be globally available for early access from today.
The essence of the critically-acclaimed console game has been distilled to create the most authentic mobile football experience to date, with the new title symbolising the fusion between esports and football. The mobile game boasts some of the biggest clubs and licences, with Manchester United and FC Bayern joining FC Barcelona and Juventus as official PES Partner Clubs, with Juventus signing an exclusive deal with KONAMI.
The partnerships provide the eFootball PES series creators significant access to the clubs’ stars and legends, enabling the development team to recreate all elements true to life.
Through eFootball PES on mobile, users will be able to create their dream squad by acquiring players from a greater roster of players than even before, thanks to new licenses such as Italy’s Serie A TIM and Serie BKT. The addition of new National Team Featured players also allows users to benefit from in-game stat boosts for players who performed well in real-life matches, further improving their squad.
Using Unreal Engine 4, eFootball PES 2020 for mobile builds on last year’s ground-breaking visuals, with improved graphics throughout and animated sequences that trigger when fresh players join your team.
“We’re incredibly excited about eFootball PES 2020 for mobile. For years, football simulators have been largely confined to consoles, but with the developing power of handheld devices, we’re finding that we’re now able to realise our ambitions for this game on mobile,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “We were keen that the mobile version didn’t just feel like a rehash of the console game, but rather a full, immersive game in its own right – we really feel like we’ve achieved that goal.”
