I was so excited when this trailer popped up today to check out all the other Argentinian club teams and see them in action.

Hmmm, just river and boca shown in the trailer. So the demo then...

At the same time it is just one more thing making me want to play the demo even more!

Kudos to them for putting gameplay in the trailer.

I could very well be incorrect, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Brazilian league will also get an announcement soon. They have a couple teams in the demo, and it won't surprise me if the league is licensed in PES 2017 along with a partnership with one of the teams (Corinthians or Flamengo perhaps). In the comments section of the announcement tweet about the Argentina League news, one of the main fan sites replied and said there is more exciting news coming.. So there's that. Haha

I don't follow the Argentina or Brazil leagues much, but my interest will probably increase quite a bit if I end up getting PES this year.

I don't know for sure but I think we'll get separate team licenses like years past. For some reason I think the individual clubs are easier to deal with than the Brazilian Confed.

I'd be more interested in these South American licenses if we also got a ton of stadiums to go along with it. Go all in with the Copa Libertadores and have like 20 stadiums from that region. Make the best use possible of the licenses you can get. Also, these teams are kind of a waste in 75% of the players have generic faces.

Completely agree with this.
Licensed teams and leagues are a waste if players have generic faces and all the matches are played at the Konami Stadium.

Any patch can add licensed kits to the game.

For this news to be really relevant they need to do something like they did for the Spanish League in PES 2013, getting all the stadiums in game.

Argentinian keepers are terrible.
