It won’t be long before the PES vs FIFA battle kicks in once more, but this time it looks like Konami have got an ace up its sleeve – for today they are announcing a partnership with Topps Trading Cards!

Teaming up with Topps, Konami will be able to give away limited edition UEFA Champions League Match Attax Trading Cards for the upcoming 2017-18 tournament with copies of PES 2018. With Konami being an official partner of UEFA and enjoying exclusive use of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League competitions within the PES series, and Topps Trading Cards having secured the rights to produce cards featuring players and teams from the forthcoming 2017/18 competition, this announcement will see fans being given the chance to collect the greatest players from Europe’s top club teams.

Starting September 14th, you will find that a limited number of exclusive cards will be included in physical versions of PES 2018. These will be available ahead of the official launch of the new Topps Match Attax range, and will only be available for a short period, so if you want to get your hands on them, you’ll need to be quick.

“We are constantly looking for ways to extend awareness of the PES series to new audiences, and are delighted to be working with a UEFA Champions League partner of the calibre of Topps,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director – Brand & Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “These collectible cards are huge with young football fans and they can be the first to get their hands on them before Topps officially releases their Match Attax range by purchasing PES 2018 at launch.”

“PES 2018 will offer the definitive football gaming experience, and we are delighted to link our 2017/18 UEFA Champions League collection with such a strong partner,” commented Rod Pearson, Marketing Director for Topps. “This year’s competition will be even more hard-fought and competitive than ever and the agreement between Topps and KONAMI showcases two very different ways to enjoy the progression of Europe’s greatest club sides.”

With PES 2018 featuring more new additions than any other PES title from the last 10 years, you’ll be able to find a game that offers complete control over its on-field action, boasting players that behave, move and react just like their real-life counterparts. New additions to the control systems promise to add more fluidity to the game, while a new user interface makes accessing its many modes a simpler process. Expect to see brand new set piece routines implemented as well!

11-Vs-11 online options, and the myClub challenge will both be joined by co-operative 2-Vs-2 and 3-Vs-3 modes with support for local guests, whilst the ‘Random Selection’ match returns with all new content, and the Master League mode implements pre-season tournaments, a new transfer system and pre-match interviews and an insight to the changing rooms.

You won’t need to wait too much longer either as PES 2018 wil be arriving on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, PS3 and PS4 comes September 14th 2017. Don’t forget to grab those exclusive Topps cards!
