The battle for supremacy has never been a closer one in the football landscape with EA and Konami providing stunning replications of the beautiful game with FIFA 20 and eFootball PES 2020 respectively. With both games out in the wild and available for public consumption though, you could well expect the experiences to change little. But Konami think differently and coming soon to PES 2020 will be the team kits, names, logos and more for the Italian Serie BKT.
Announced today is news that Konami will be bringing Italy’s second division football league Serie BKT to eFootball PES 2020, fully licensed and exclusive to the game, making it the only football video game on console and mobile to feature the complete Serie BKT experience.
The license agreement between Konami and Serie BKT means that the league logo, trophy and associated badges will all be present, along with the team kits and names which will be added to eFootball PES 2020 later this month via a data pack.
And further to that, the same Serie BKT content will also be featured in the upcoming eFootball PES 2020 on mobile update.
With multiple license agreements already in place this year, including that of Juventus and Italy’s Serie A TIM league, eFootball PES 2020 continues to push forward the reputation the series has gained for authenticity and realism in-game. And if you don’t believe that fact, our full review of eFootball PES 2020 on Xbox One tells just how all thos things come together.
Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V. commented, “Our commitment to securing league and team licenses for eFootball PES goes beyond just the top-flight competitions and clubs. We firmly believe in recreating the complete professional experience, including the highs and lows that come with club promotion and relegations. Our exclusive agreement with Italy’s Serie BKT league is a clear sign of that commitment and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
