Konami has announced that Pro Evolution Soccer or just PES to its friends is to be available on the launch of the 3DS. It will stay true to the PES gameplay, the main difference will be the added depth to the game due to the 3D capabilities of the 3DS.
All the usual stuff will be there, searching passes, one-two play, deft close control and rising volleys with AI that ensures that players not only look identical to their real-life counterparts, but move and react like them too.
PES 2011 3D boasts full play-by-play commentary and also features exclusive use of the UEFA Champions League, the game’s greatest club competition, while players can also build their own team of budding stars and lead them to glory in the world famous Master League. PES 2011 3D also supports wireless play for two Nintendo 3DS users to compete against each other, and makes use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s ‘Street Pass’ mode. Street Pass adds a competitive element to the Master League mode. It will sense when another Master League team is in the vicinity, and will compare the strength of each side, their respective strategies and stats. It will then award a win to the stronger side. Those with a strong win rate on Street Pass will be promoted to an upper Street Pass Ranking until they reach the ultimate ranking – the UEFA Champions League. Similarly, as users play more and more using Street Pass, the game will unlock Classic players and teams, allowing successful users to create an incredible playing squad!
Wait for the whistle on March 25th before kicking off!
