The latest entry into the long running PES franchise has just been announced and appears to be setting its sights on an ambitious future.

The team working on PES 2012 is closely working with both fans of the series and football fans to create one of the most realistic and immersive football experiences available on todays consoles.

Shingo ‘Seabass’ Takatsuka, the Creative Producer of the Pro Evo Soccer spoke on the announcement saying;

“For me, the ultimate aim in the ongoing PES series is to match what people see when they go to a match or watch a big game on TV with what they experience on their console, as such, in consultation with football fans across the globe, we have been working non-stop to isolate and determine how to make our game marry in with how real football is played. This is key to PES 2012, and key to providing the ultimate football experience within a console title.”

PES 2012 will feature a swathe of new innovations including the ability to draw out defendes with dummy runs plus new refined AI that will support you closer in more intimate one-on-one engagements.

With the numerous refinements to the series plus a number of graphical and lighting based changes, PES 2012 is set to truly capture the atmosphere and essence of football.

Pro Evo Soccer 2012 will be launching in Spring, 2011 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, Wii, PSP and Playstation 2.
