Pro Evolution Soccer Coming To Wii

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Konami have today announced that the ever popular Pro Evolution Soccer will be coming to Wii consoles early 2008.

Scheduled for a Q1 launch, the Wii version of PES will offer the same level of realism that has established the series as the definitive football title, but has been undergone a radical rethink to make the most of the Wii’s motion-sensitive control system. The game will make full use of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, offering total control over every aspect of the players and their movements both on and off the ball. The clever use of the Wii controllers will allow users to send players running into space, and to distribute the ball with ease.

“We are extremely keen to introduce PES to as wide a selection of football fans as possible, and the Wii and its unique abilities are a perfect fit,” commented Jon Murphy, Pro Evolution Soccer Team Leader for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. “The potential for PES on the format is enormous, and we look forward to a very exciting start to 2008.”

If they manage to get the controls right, it should be a match winner.

I remember hearing this had been cacelled and being gutted, whoever told me that - shame on you! :P
The controls are the only thing that could let the game down so yeah I hope they go through a lot of testing for that, and give us support for GC controllers in case they get it wrong.
