One of the biggest soccer games is partnering with one of the biggest soccer teams. Publisher Konami has announced a three-year partnership with FC Barcelona to have “extensive access to the club’s stars”. PES 2017 also has exclusive rights to recreate Barcelona’s stadium, Nou Camp, and PES ads will be displayed in the real-life Nou Camp.
“By working closely with a team of Barcelona’s stature we can introduce the PES series to a huge global fan base”, said Tomotada Tashiro, president of Konami. This deal is a no-brainer, really, and we can’t believe it hasn’t happened before.
The deal is celebrated in a brand new PES 2017 trailer. Check it out here:
