October 15th for Pro Evolution Soccer 4

Konami of Europe confirms pan-European launch date for the PlayStation 2 version of its footballing legend…

Konami of Europe has announced the PlayStation 2 version of its eagerly-awaited Pro Evolution Soccer 4 will be released on October 15th. Versions for Xbox and PC-DVD will follow in November.

The release of Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is rightly seen as one of the high points of the gaming year. Each new installment delivers ever more realistic football action, and Pro Evolution Soccer 4 is easily the most accurate and intuitive football game for any system. The new game has also enjoyed a number of major additions, including the use of 56 clubs under the license from the Spanish and Dutch leagues and each club from the Italian league, and will also feature three of the game's most recognizable figures on its packaging, in the form of Premiership Golden Boot holder Thierry Henry and Italy's prolific front man, Francesco Totti. They are joined by Pierluigi Collina - the internationally respected match official - who also appeared on the packaging for Pro Evolution Soccer 4's predecessor.

"Each year, the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise gets bigger and bigger, and the launch of Pro Evolution Soccer 4 represents possibly the biggest advance for the series to date," commented Martin Schneider, European Marketing & PR Director for Konami of Europe. "The addition of licensed clubs, vastly improved gameplay, and its association with some of the biggest names in football in Henry, Totti and Collina prove how important it is to Konami, and we anticipate huge sales as eager fans queue for their copies on October 15th."
