We are delighted to announce our existing global partnership with KONAMI has been expanded.
The partnership is in its second year and the deal sees the club’s official football video game partner once again perfectly recreating our first-team players and introducing new access to some of our biggest club legends in PES 2019.
In the latest release fans will benefit from the 3D scanning of players and our Emirates Stadium home and for the first time, gamers will see the much-loved faces of Arsenal Legends included within PES 2019, more of which will be announced soon. Supporters recently had a taster of the game when KONAMI ran a large-scale promotion before the Arsenal v Real Madrid Legends match at Emirates Stadium.
Vinai Venkatesham, our managing director, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our agreement with KONAMI as a global partner of Arsenal and one that captures the essence of our club within PES 2019. We are excited to be offering our fans the opportunity to experience both the players and Emirates Stadium so accurately within the game while also providing the opportunity to call on some legends in our proud history to bring the game to life.”
“Arsenal is one of the biggest and most successful clubs in world football, so we are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with them,” commented Jonas Lygaard, senior director brand & business development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “KONAMI is dedicated to working with the biggest clubs in the world, and with a history such as Arsenal’s and the talent they have on display within their current squad, we are doing just that.”
