M&C has the scoop.
"Japanese developer and publisher Konami has today announced that PES 2008 is on schedule for a late March release, with the Wii version of its hugely popular football franchise set to "make full use" of the Wii’s unique and innovative control system.
What that means for Nintendo-based fans of the Pro Evolution series is that Wii gamers will be able to utilise a "point and drag" control method whereby they use the Wii Remote to guide whichever player is in possession of the football, while also able to perform skill moves and close control by applying subtle hand gestures.
Furthermore, the Wii Remote can be used to achieve extra control for steering players when dribbling and tactically running into open spaces on the pitch, while nearby team mates can also be selected to receive incoming passes or make runs on to attacking through-balls."
