Today Konami Digital Entertainment has revealed their Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 boxart for the United Kingdom. As promised the boxart has both Christiano Ronaldo and Michael Owen.

Konami previously announced that Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 will feature more licensed clubs than ever. Newly acquired club licences include Newcastle United , Tottenham Hotspurs and Spartak Moscow. Newly acquired national squad licences include Brazil, Portugal, Greece, Scotland and Ireland.

"Konami has worked hard to bolster the number of licensed clubs in PES 2008, and the new additions represent a huge step forward for the series," commented Jon Murphy, Pro Evolution Soccer Team Leader for Konami Digital Entertainment. "We listen very closely to what people want from the series, and hope these new additions further extend PES 2008's reputation within both die-hard football fans and newcomers alike."

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 will be released in mid-October in the United Kingdom and Europe. The game will be released later this year in North America.
