Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. today announced that Neymar Jr. will be the global cover athlete for PES 2016. The game publisher also released a teaser trailer -- the full game reveal will happen on June 12.

Neymar Jr. is the cover star of PES 2016 after his most successful season to date. The world famous forward saw his team win La Liga and Copa del Rey in Brazil with Neymar Jr. scoring in the final. He also went on to win the UEFA Champions League, an exclusive license in PES 2016, again scoring the decisive goal in the final, which completed a historic hat trick. Just 23 years old, Neymar Jr. has been the golden boy of Brazil since his teen years, and now captains the national team. His inspiring dribbling skills, together with deadly finishing and electric pace, make Neymar Jr. a soccer superstar, with the promise of much more in the future. Neymar Jr. will be featured on the PES 2016 cover and all marketing materials.

“This is a real honor for me to be the cover star for PES 2016," Neymar Jr. said. "The series has long been praised for its sheer level of control and utter realism and I am delighted to be working with such a talented team as Konami. I am fascinated by the huge amount of work involved in putting together the game and ensuring the world’s top players look and play just like the real things, and I cannot wait to see myself in action as soon as possible.”

"Neymar Jr. is a player that perfectly fits the PES brand and what we want to achieve," added Erik Bladinieres, European Brand Director of Football. "His unique qualities and the ability to surprise goes hand in hand with the gameplay experience in PES 2016. In our anniversary year, we want to celebrate the past, while we look forward to the exciting future of the brand. We'll do this with Neymar Jr. leading our campaign."

PES 2016 will be announced on June 12, and will feature information on Neymar Jr. as a pre-order exclusive player reward to be used in myClub.

I guess all we need now is PES to do a proper PC port and not a hybrid.

Looking forward to hearing more. And I also hope that the PC version isn't dumbed down this year.

Damn, PES continues to own FIFA with the quality of those faces. They just need to add some animations this year and this game will look sweet.

Faces look much better than FIFA, but overall graphics of players still look like cartoons. I wish we could combine FIFA's presentation and overall package to PES gameplay.

That teaser got me so hyped! The graphics are finally next gen, though the kits may seem to be a little behind on quality compared to the faces, mainly the shorts. Still so much time for them to polish it up. I'm just hoping the modes greatly inproved because the gameplay is definitely 👌🏼

Obviously can't tell much by this teaser, but if the physicality of play is any indication, I'll take it. The only thing better would have been to see a foul being called or a free kick being taken.

Yeah, the CPU needs to have more variety when they challenge for the ball. They don't slide tackle or make bad challenges at midfield at all in 2015. They just run at you and instantly the ball is gone.

Maybe they will actually implement CPU fouls this year

I wonder if when a few weeks back they mentioned "more official licenses" they really meant sponsors...Apple??

If they haven't revamped ML or implemented a way to share option files then it's a no buy for me.
