According to a press release sent out this morning, Konami has confirmed the release window for Pro Evolution Soccer 2009. With an expected retail window for this fall (autumn for the Europeans), PES 2009 hopes to rekindle the magic that made it such a classy football title in the past. Last year left a lot of its supporters feeling the last installment was a stale upgrade into the next generation football race, FIFA 2008 saw a lot of new users.
Konami has recognized this and is refining the title with new features and customization that they have said will "further bridge the gap between PES and the real thing."
Although the rest of the press release was mainly press talk, users can expect improved graphics, better online quality and expanded moves being utilized by your artificial Ronaldinho. We’ll see if Konami can pull itself up after the unexpected slip last season.
