Konami Begins 25th Anniversary Celebration for eFootball PES with Iconic Moment Series

With the release of J.League Jikkyou Winning Eleven in Japan on 21st July, 1995, KONAMI has today announced the first details of a 25th Anniversary campaign for the globally-recognised franchise, eFootball PES.

To start the campaign, KONAMI has introduced the “Iconic Moment Series”, an ongoing celebration of memorable moments produced by the finest stars of football, past and present.

Each Iconic Moment Series player will commemorate a specific highlight of their career, with the player card featuring an actual image from that match and stats to mirror that period. In addition, each Iconic Moment Series player or Legend will be affiliated to a specific team, with a stat boost available if you match that player or Legend with your chosen myClub team.

From today, KONAMI is pleased to present all users of eFootball PES 2020 with an Iconic Moment Series Legend version of Maradona, commemorating his performance in the 1983 Spanish Cup Final for FC Barcelona.

Beyond this gift to our players, the following Iconic Moment Series Legends will also be available through in-game campaigns starting today:

  • Oliver Kahn (FC Bayern) – Iconic Match: 09/02/2002
  • Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (FC Bayern) – Iconic Match: 13/06/1981
  • Giovane Élber (FC Bayern) – Iconic Match: 17/05/2003
  • Carles Puyol (FC Barcelona) – Iconic Match: 17/05/2006
  • Xavi (FC Barcelona) – Iconic Match: 27/05/2009
  • Andres Iniesta (FC Barcelona) – Iconic Match: 06/05/2009

The 25th Anniversary campaign will continue with additional in-game releases and announcements throughout the year, intended to delight franchise veterans and new players from all over the world.

In addition, Data Pack 5.0 for eFootball PES 2020 is now available via free download for PlayStation®4, Xbox One™ and PC STEAM.
