Konami + Dortmund Enter 4 Year Top-Level PES Partnership

by

Konami have today entered into a new 4-year top level PES partnership with German club, Borussia Dortmund.

This 4 year deal will see Dortmund be perfectly recreated in PES 2017 and beyond. All kits will be correct and present in the game, with Konami also getting access to the 1st team squad to make sure the likeness in PES is absolutely spot on.

Konami will also recreate the stunning Signal Iduna Park stadium within the game and recreate anthemic songs and chants used pre-match and by Dortmund’s passionate fans. The publisher will also use its incredible face-scanning systems to recreate the squad’s likenesses within PES 2017, with all these elements to follow in a free downloadable update after the game is released. Tomotada Tashiro, President of Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. stated:

We are delighted to be working with such a forward-thinking football club as Borussia Dortmund in this capacity. We are committed to bringing this illustrious club to life with PES 2017 and beyond, and the club and its players will be vital in introducing the series to its massive fan base. For those attending this year’s gamescom, I’m also excited to confirm that we will have two of Dortmund’s biggest players, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Shinji Kagawa, making a special appearance at the KONAMI booth in Hall 8.1 on August 18th – we look forward to seeing you there!

Carsten Cramer, Sales and Marketing Director of Borussia Dortmund added:

We look forward to a close relationship with KONAMI and the PES team. Our fans expect football of the highest quality and we know that KONAMI has the ability to replicate our playing style and the abilities of our team perfectly.

With Gamescom kicking off tomorrow for the general public, the official trailer has also been released. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

I’ve watched a few games and I am sill not convinced the AI is good enough in this game. I’ll wait for the Demo to judge. To me it seems AI players on the ball still don’t take advantage of space when they have it/ create it after dribbling past… Read more »

In the IGN video, Arsenal didn’t have a shot on goal the entire game. I hope that wasn’t superstar.

Maybe it was regular difficulty and the Human player was decent, cause after watching that ign video I doubt it was amateur difficulty. I just hope the AI in 2017 will be aggressive and proactive, constantly searching for space and taking advantage of it, not just mindlessly holding the ball… Read more »

Wow, you’re still here spouting nonsense. The game died in 2012. They don’t listen, get over it.
