-

Konami aren’t messing about when it comes to acquiring new licensing deals for their next instalment of the PES series, PES 2019, and their latest venture sees them partnering with the second best team currently in the Bundesliga, Schalke 04!

Having recently revealed a deal involving seven new league licenses, their latest move showcases Konami’s commitment to the fans of the series by joining forces the seven time German league winners, Schalke 04. The partnership means that PES 2019 will include their official club uniform and the team’s home stadium ‘VELTINS-Arena’. It will also visualize Schalke’s famous charcoal grey tunnel from which the players emerge onto the pitch on match day. The stadium has been fully 3D scanned and will give gamers the opportunity experience the atmosphere of a match.

Alexander Jobst, board member at FC Schalke 04 who oversaw the Konami partnership has the following to say:

We are very excited to be partnering with the world-renowned games producer Konami. The partnership means that Schalke’s position as pioneers in the field of eSports is not only recognized nationally but also internationally. Unlike others, Konami supports our transitioning of our main market football onto the virtual pitch. The partnership will also enable our fans and followers to play with the real team of FC Schalke 04 in the world-renowned game Pro Evolution Soccer.”

PES 2019 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on 28th August in the Americas and 30th August globally. There will be two physical editions released, with new global ambassador Phillipe Coutinho on the front cover of the standard edition and David Beckham on a special edition which gives fans the opportunity to unlock myClub bonuses – there’s also a Legends edition that’s digital only.

Been gaming casually since the SNES as a youngster but found my true passion for games on the Playstation 1 (the forbidden word ooo). My addiction grew to its pinnacle with the purchase of an Xbox 360 & Xbox Live Service. A recovering GS hunter that will still play literally any game.
