What a job Konami have done with the trailer. Out of nowhere they have struck first blood against EA and the battle against FIFA 13 has commenced. It might seem too early to even think about Pes 2013 when there is 6 months left before it’s released but Konami have started the hype train to achieve one thing; awareness. PES is changing, we the fans are being listened to. There’s no bullshit. Most importantly, EVERYBODY is talking about Pes. Talk about stealing FIFA’s Euro DLC! Surely a coincidence?!
While the marketing team at Konami deserve credit, I have to admit the footage fully backs it up. The movement looks amazing. The direction of the game seems to be almost (dare I say it) hardcore PES. The tagline “Talk is cheap” is a serious statement. The potential of the game has caught every football gamers attention. In this day and age, innovation is rare. Potentially, PES has everything going for it. I have wanted PES to go back to it’s roots for ages. I want an incredibly hard game to master. I want to be beaten 10-0 by a far superior player. Leave FIFA have the casual market. Leave it have the licenses. Daymos will sort us XBOX fans out and the PS3 option files are equally amazing.
The confidence Konami seem to have so early in the year fills me with excitement. Shooting and keepers are mentioned in the first few lines. They are tackling those problems head on. There is no way Konami will screw the shooting and keepers up. That is almost a guarantee. It’s an exciting time to be a PES fan that’s for sure. Get in touch below and let me know your feelings on the trailer and details released.
