Konami has announced that Neymar Jr., current PSG and Brazilian national team player – known especially in Spain for his time at FC Barcelona between 2013 and 2017- be the new ambassador for all Konami football games, beginning with eFootball PES 2021 SEASON UPDATE and the most imminent, eFootball PES 2022. “It is an honor for me to sign an agreement with Konami. I hope to continue playing with passion and awakening great emotions in the world of football together with the series. PES Y Winning Eleven! “, Neymar said with the announcement.
“Neymar Jr. is an exceptional footballer whose remarkable career has led him to become the second top scorer of the Brazilian national soccer team, with 68 goals in 111 games to date. Already considered by many to be one of the best footballers in the world, Neymar Jr. shows the same passion and determination as current footballers associated with Konami, so the company will proudly support his career, “said the company.
The soccer player is therefore expected to be one of the most visible images during the promotion of the next PES, which aims to be one of the most important renovations in the saga in recent years. Replace FOX Engine, the engine created for Metal Gear Solid 5, by Unreal Engine, and in our first impressions of its test we noted that it is appreciated a slower pace than PES 2021, with interface changes and other adjustments, although it should be noted that it was not a demo but a version created specifically to test connections.
A free game?
Tomorrow, July 21, will be officially introduced eFootball PES 2022 and it will be a good time to check if the latest rumors of the game are true: there is talk of a model free to play or free with which they seek to compete with FIFA, which more than a decade ago snatched the lead in sales and reviews. It would not be too surprising, since PES has been offering a free Lite version for some time, but the new bet would be to debut eFootball PES 2022 with limited content and then expand with payments – for example for clubs, stadiums or modes.
