We are delighted to announce a three-year extension to our existing global partnership with Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. (KONAMI).
KONAMI originally joined as our official football video game partner in 2017 and this upgraded partnership will now run until June 2022.
As well as integrating a highly detailed recreation of Emirates Stadium into eFootball PES 2020, the latest version of the game will also include 3D scans of our players to capture their visual likeness and imitate their movements, playing styles and tactical capabilities.
As part of this extended partnership, KONAMI will have increased access to the first-team players and club legends, as well as a larger digital, social and matchday presence.
The announcement of this extension coincides with the start of the PES League 2019 World Finals, which are being hosted at Emirates Stadium and attended by Arsenal legend Robert Pires.
Arsenal commercial director Peter Silverstone said: “We are delighted to be extending our global partnership with KONAMI. Now in our third year, our relationship continues to go from strength to strength. We are excited to work with KONAMI to further engage our huge global fanbase and give them the opportunity to experience the players, Legends and Emirates Stadium so accurately within eFootball PES 2020.”
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. senior director of brand and business development Jonas Lygaard said: “We’re delighted to announce the extension of our long-running partnership with one of the biggest and most successful football clubs in the world. Building on our existing relationship, we look forward to working even closer with the Gunners, who will be featured extensively in eFootball PES 2020.”
eFootball PES 2020 ushers in a new decade of industry-leading football simulation and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC STEAM, on September 10 with pre-orders now available for the standard and legend editions. An exclusive Arsenal edition of the game will also be available.
