Speaking via a translator to Polygon, the games Executive Producer of Konamis PES Productions has said “The issue we have with a limited number of staff in Japan is that there are so many different football cultures,”…”We think that, Europe being a very important market for us, we wanted to provide something to appeal to the fans there, to their football culture. We wanted to create a PES brand that is accepted by the European culture and we thought having a production studio based in the U.K. would be a very good creative space for the fans to accept our game.”
Gameplay has been tweaked since 2014 which suffered from slow and heavy feeling characters for a more responsive and slightly faster experience. The games creative producer, Kei Masuda has commented on the games change in pace. PES 2015 is a bit quicker than its FIFA opposition. Masuda has said, “The game speed has been increased to allow for that burst of speed, as well as slower technical movements,”…”The passes and shots have been revised as well, and their relation to the power [behind them] has been directly affected.”
The games official website touts lightning fast ball controls that have been “fine tuned” for an “unparalleled” gameplay experience. A “highly developed AI” that is said to constantly adjust to the action on the pitch, they expand on this by saying “Teammates always offer options and support, making runs, finding space or marking opponents”
The powerful FOX Engine gives the game increased animation capabilities that help bring both the crowd and the players to life, be it from players movement to the crowd dynamically reacting to the flow of the match as control wavers between the teams.
The game has also been given a new shooting mechanic that allows the player to accurately control how much power they put behind a strike and where it goes.
The listings for playable teams in Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 have not yet been revealed.
