Leading Soccer Franchise Makes Debut on Next-Generation Systems with More Teams and Expanded Modes of Play

LOS ANGELES – Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Booth #800 – May 9, 2006 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system, and PC, as well as the series’ debut on the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Nintendo DS™. Marking the return of the world’s top soccer franchise, the game extends its leadership position with new international teams, new modes of play and astoundingly realistic gameplay.

The world’s best rated soccer video game franchise, Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 expands upon the series’ unmatched realism with faster gameplay, more responsive control and improved artificial intelligence. Players will now make intelligent runs without the ball, identifying opportunities and pointing to where they would like the ball to be delivered. Similarly, the game is now more physical, with defenders jockeying for position and strikers working to turn their opponent as they receive the ball. The game’s shooting system has also been refined, letting players take more snap shots, while volleys have been updated for more player control.

Players will also be able to enjoy the Beautiful Game in more ways than ever before with new play modes. International Challenge mode lets players compete through four continents of opposition to become a champion, while Random Selection Match lets gamers take the field with a group of players selected at random from a predetermined league or geographic area. The popular Master League mode returns with more options, allowing players to take complete control of their favorite team and control its destiny for an extended period of time.

The game’s roster of teams is also expanded with new, fully-licensed international teams for players to use including Argentina, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden, as well as additional club teams. Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 is planned for retail launch in January 2007. For more information on the game, please visit www.konami.com/gs.

This is a game I'm really looking forward to. I'm excited to hear about new licenses, which add another sense of realism to be the best soccer game on the market. FIFA has been coming along these past couple years, and it's nice to see Konami keep improving.

Makes me wish Konami made more sports games. I'd love to see them do a real hockey game.
