Konami is currently trialling an arcade cabinet in the UK based on the hit Pro Evolution Soccer franchise.

The two-player Pro Evolution Soccer Arcade Championship is being tested in two locations in London, with the intention of launching more coin-op units later this year.

The cabinet uses e-Amusement cards, which allow players to save data on pre-paid cards and plug them into any cabinet.

e-Amusement is also an online service, linking all cabinets throughout Europe to a central server and facilitating play between units.

As well as trialling the arcade machines, Konami intends to hold pan-European tournaments after a full roll-out in June.
