Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH just announced that their recently released Soccer sim, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, more commonly called PES 2011, will be making its way to Windows Phone 7. The version has been created especially for the new range of mobiles.
Here’s some information on this port by Konami:
“PES 2011 focuses on the incredible realism and gameplay its console versions are famed for, and offers the most advanced team and player AI in a mobile game. The game gives the user total control over their selected team, offering passes, through-balls, neat inter-changes and blistering shots via a specially devised control system. The Windows Phone 7 version of the game also introduces the ‘true flow’ system, which allows users to determine the level of control they use, either using AI-supported controls, or opting to use on-screen buttons to mimic those of a conventional joypad controller.
As with its console counterparts, PES 2011 for Windows Phone 7 offers a wide range of competitions and tournaments, including the officially licensed UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League modes, while online connectivity is provided via online Leaderboards for the best players, and the ability to unlock Xbox LIVE achievements via the mobile game. PES 2011 also benefits from stunning visuals that bring the game to life. The players react just like their real-life counterparts, and stunning animation shows their skills to full effect – even down to their goal celebrations.”
“PES 2011 arrives on a new format, bringing its intense realism and stunning gameplay to a whole new audience,” commented Florian Stronk, Head of Network Business Development for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “PES gamers can now hone their skills while away from their system, while the true ethos of PES – skill, timing and beautiful football – can be enjoyed at any time, everywhere.”
Ron Pessner, General Manager, Microsoft also had something to say to this: “It is great to see best in class game franchises such as PES 2011 coming to Windows Phone 7, cementing the fact that it is fast becoming a leading gaming platform. Windows Phone 7 is a great platform for PES 2011 and I am looking forward to the game’s release.”
