Generally speaking, from the look of the screens it appears that the detail of the faces hasn't changed much from PES 2015, which was already pretty good from that aspect, though. The likenesses for both players are spot on, however.

<![CDATA[PES 2016 Features, Release Date + Cover Revealed]]>Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:15:49 GMThttp://pes-community.weebly.com/pes-news/pes-2016-features-release-date-cover-revealedKonami has confirmed that PES 2016 will be released on September 15th (17th and 18th for other regions, respectively) for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, XboxOne and Xbox.
Additionally, Konami has detailed lots of new and updated features for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. For all details, read the uncut press release below:


Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced a September 18th release date for PES 2016, marking the 20th anniversary edition of the hugely successful football series.

From its humble origins on PSOne, the PES series has leaped from format to format, adding ever more realism as it evolved. This heritage has been celebrated in PES 2016’s new tagline ‘Love The Past, Play The Future’, highlighting the series’ recent return to core PES values in last year’s PES 2015 and focusing on the many new gameplay and presentational elements that will further establish the series as the definitive football experience.

PES 2016 aims to retain its title of ‘Best Sports Game’, as voted across the world at games shows and by major media outlets in 2014, by continuing to lead the way in the recreation of ‘The Beautiful Game’. The series aims to go back to its roots to create an exciting match between users, and proudly present PES 2016 to deliver quality gameplay as per KONAMI’s ‘The Pitch is Ours’ mantra. From further integration of the industry-leading Fox Engine to bring the on-pitch action to life and full commitment to centre the product around creating the best gameplay experience, to the full redevelopment of Master League, every facet of the game has been enhanced to deliver yet another outstanding product.


Exciting advancements reaffirming the PES series as having the very best gameplay.

Advanced Collision System – The physicality of the modern game has been realised in PES 2016 with a significantly improved collision system, calculating how players interact and creating a unique outcome depending on the type of impact.
Aerial Strength – With the new physicality system, aerial battles are a completely unique experience this year. Use the left stick to battle the opposition or disrupt a larger, more powerful, player; or find the best position to make the header/volley.
1v1 Control – In PES 2016 the 1v1 player control have been enhanced, offering a wide range of movements within the existing control structure. Response times have been improved, allowing players to manoeuvre in tight situations. This also benefits the upgraded feint moves that allow sudden directional change that can cause defenders to lose their balance. The 1on1 situations now offer a great leap in exciting table-turning outcomes. Just as the real pitch offers opportunities for those brave enough to perform, in PES 2016 players can pull off precise action, manoeuvre flexibly and pull away from the defender. Technique and timing can see a defender lose his balance, and creates great chances just as you pictured.
Perfect Defence – Performing a tackle at the perfect time will powerfully shove the player out of the way to secure the ball. The ball will immediately be yours, creating direct turnarounds and counter opportunities.
Intelligent Player AI – 2-3 player combination play will be available via the improved concept of team strategy, which depends on the type of tactic you set for your team. Players are no longer reliant on manually triggering a one-two, with teammates intelligently running off passes into space.
Goal Keeper ID – In a bid to improve quality and add unique individuality in performance, new goal keeper parameters have been added that vary in Catching, Clearance, Collapsing and Deflecting. This adds character to the players, who you can count on catching the ball rather than punching, or are better at stopping close range shots.
Celebration Control – New for the series, players have full control over goal celebrations to maximize their excitement when scoring! Prompts appear after a goal to trigger a trademark celebration, or unique actions at the press of a button.

New significant improvements across key modes and features.

New Master League – The famous and hugely popular Master League enjoys a total revamp, allowing users to immerse themselves in the managerial world of soccer. Every element has been redesigned or reworked, from the vibrant and involving menus to the new and exciting player transfer system, PES 2016 see one of the series most integral modes redefine the single-player experience.
New Visuals – Incorporating the many advancements of the Fox Engine, the visuals have seen a huge upgrade. See the rain splash as players slide in to win possession, or the turf kick up as you strike the ball into the top corner. New night-time lighting and real turf textures are among some of the many improvements.
Dynamic Weather – For the first time in the PES series, dynamic weather has been introduced, with the chance of rain starting during the game. Combined with the ever more realistic ball physics, the rain changes how the game can be played with passes speeding up, and less skilled players likely to struggle with trapping. The defender taken by the 1-on-1 will also be more likely to slip and fall due to incorrect studs or blades. This feature is applied to all offline modes including the Master League, and is an important element to decide the outcome of the match.

Human Motion – Seeking to humanize player movement, 3x new animations have been added to bring the in-game superstars to life. Goalkeepers have seen an abundance of save animations added, while outfield players shoot, pass, dribble and tackle with incredible variety depending on the situation. Players complain when a foul isn't given, or lament a teammate when a pass isn't made when in open space. The new 1v1 control also benefits from this, with players being able to fool their opponents with shimmies and feints that can result in causing the opposing player to lose his balance and fall in the wrong direction!
New Ball Physics – The past few years has seen the series make huge advancements in ball physics, and for PES 2016 new levels of realism have been reached. Each spin, bobble and ricochet has been calculated using real ball physic data, helping keep every moment in every game unique and unpredictable.

Many important elements are upgraded per fan feedback.

myClub – Since the launch of the mode in PES 2015, myClub has been updated on a weekly basis, and has been further improved based on user feedback for PES 2016. The enhancement will introduce player level systems, and players exclusive to the mode. Use GP acquired through matches or myClub coins to experience realistic club management combined with players to strive to be stronger in your squad. Choose the manager, consider coaches, and build the strategy based on what you aim with your team. Build Your Team, Create Your legacy!
Dynamic Wide Camera Angle – The new angle gives you a larger field of vision, allowing you to better plan and adjust your players to compete in aerial battles, or see the intelligent runs being made thanks to Intelligent Player AI. Depending on where the ball is on the pitch, the camera will tilt and pan accordingly to make sure the user has the best view possible during the match.
Commentary – New commentators have been introduced for both UK and Germany, with Peter Drury and Marco Hagemann joining the PES team. A wealth of new lines and specific stories have been recorded dedicated for Master League, responding to player transfers, player growth and team performance.
PS4 Image Importing – Edit mode is synonymous with the PES series, and further updates have been made to this hugely popular mode. PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 users are now able to import images into the game, thus perfectly replicating any team kit or emblem the user wishes - including managers.

PES 2016 will also exclusively retain its use of the UEFA Champions League club competition, which was announced recently. This new three-year partnership allows KONAMI to feature both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League club competitions within its many options, with both featured as individual modes or within the larger season overview upon qualification - with the UEFA Super Cup featured within the iconic Master League mode

Further details of PES 2016’s content – including a rewards program for current myClub users crossing over this year – will follow, with new information and screenshots released at E3 next week.

<![CDATA[KONAMI LAUNCH PES CLUB MANAGER MOBILE GAME]]>Sat, 06 Jun 2015 14:35:47 GMThttp://pes-community.weebly.com/pes-news/konami-launch-pes-club-manager-mobile-gameKonami today unveiled a new free-to-play mobile game, called PES Club Manager. In PES Club Manager, you can build up a team from the ground and control transfers and tactics. PES Club Manager includes a 3D match preview engine based on that of the PES 2015 console and PC versions.
For more info on PES Club Manager, read the official PES Club Manager press release below:

KONAMI takes to the pitch with the global launch of PES Club Manager now available on both iOS and Android

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced the release of PES CLUB MANAGER – a football manager title for iOS and Android. The new game will make full use of 3D elements using the Pro Evolution Soccer Console Game Engine that powers the critically acclaimed PES 2015.

PES CLUB MANAGER will be released in 18 localized versions, including UK English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Chinese, Swedish and LATAM dialects and is absolutely free to play.

The basis of the game is to create and develop a small club and turn them into world-beaters. To this end, PES CLUB MANAGER tasks users to lead their team to the top and become the best club manager in the world! Over 5,000 licensed players will be available, which are used to assemble the strongest squad possible.
The match day element of PES CLUB MANAGER recreates the drama of a top-level game. The stunning 3D elements that brought PES 2015 to vivid life have been fully utilized within the mobile game, representing a spectacular level of realism. Matches truly reflect the tactical systems implemented by the user, with the licensed players also instantly recognizable in how they move and play. A simple menu interface also allows users to make changes to tactics mid-match, with the on-field action instantly adapting to reflect the defensive or offensive push. All the licensed players in the game reflect their real-life counterparts and outline their playing style and key abilities.

PES CLUB MANAGER features a unique “Player Management” system to help bolster the squad. Users can acquire new footballers through a transfer market where the highest bidder will get the player in a real-time auction. Through a scouting system, new talents can be spotted, and through the Youth Academy, users can continuously access upcoming stars as well. Players can then be developed individually by focusing on different skills, well-known from the Pro Evolution Soccer series to improve personal and team skills throughout the season, further enhancing the strength of the team.

Lastly, PES CLUB MANAGER also includes a ‘My Home Town’ feature that allows users to customize and manage the surrounding town environment of your stadium. Upgrading your facilities, such as youth academies, club house and medical facilities, are key in strengthening your football team. Every facility will give different advantages (e.g. increase revenues, improve training conditions for players, and attract new up and coming talent).
“PES CLUB MANAGER represents our most ambitious and technically demanding mobile title to date,” explained Tashiro Tomotada, President for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “We have used the skills and expertise of the world-renowned PES development team to add a level of visual acuity that brings PES CLUBMANAGER’s incredible on-field action to vibrant life. The season kicks off on a global basis today, and we look forward to extending the reach of the respected PES series to an all-new audience.”

You can already download PES Club Manager globally on both Google Play and the App Store.

<![CDATA[FULL PES 2016 REVEAL ON JUNE 12]]>Wed, 03 Jun 2015 20:50:47 GMThttp://pes-community.weebly.com/pes-news/full-pes-2016-reveal-on-june-12Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will be officially revealed on June 12, new photos today confirmed. The photos of the PES stand at the UEFA Champions League festival in Berlin show the PES 2016 logo with 'Full Reveal - June 12th' written below it.


We will get the first info on Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 on June 12. (thanks to @MarvinRonsdorf)
The wording of the poster, as well as the placement at the Champions festival suggest that we will get some sort of 'partial' reveal, like a trailer, before the 12th. This would confirm numerous rumors about a first PES 2016 trailer to be released at half time of the Champions League final between Juventus and Barcelona.

Additionally, the picture shows the new Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 logo, which got a new typeface, while maintaining the black and red color scheme.

Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer brand manager Erik Bladinieres back in April already hinted that the first Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 news would be revealed in June, while Konami in the last days teased fans on Twitter regarding an imminent PES 2016 announcement. Additionally, Konami will be present at E3 later in June, with a PES 2016 build expected to be playable to the public.

<![CDATA[6 things PES 2016 needs to fix to beat FIFA]]>Thu, 14 May 2015 17:54:42 GMThttp://pes-community.weebly.com/pes-news/6-things-pes-2016-needs-to-fix-to-beat-fifaPro Evolution Soccer was the best football game of 2015 but Konami still has some work to do.

PES 2015 was a colossal improvement on the mess that was PES 2014. Fans loved it, critics lavished praise on it, and for many football game fans it pipped EA’s FIFA 15 as the best football game of the year. PES is back on top and it needs to stay there.

In 2016, EA will be looking to bounce back strongly, so the PES team simply can’t afford to rest on their laurels. Someone much smarter than me once said: 'if you don’t move forward, sooner or later you begin to move backward', and that certainly applies here. With that in mind, here are six things that could be improved for PES 2016.
1. A realistic Master League mode
For a game that is all about simulating the beautiful game on the pitch, its main offline mode is quite the opposite. Like FIFA’s Career Mode, Master League is supposed to make you feel like a manager in between playing matches, but that couldn’t be further from the case.

Instead you’re greeted with an archaic calendar system that lets weeks pass without allowing you to do anything. There's also an illogical transfer system that consists of smiley faces. It’s living in the past, relying on its quirky charm to mask its shortcomings. We’re not in 2005 anymore and it’s time Master League offered something substantial. 

You know, kind of like FIFA where you actually feel like you’re managing a club. Sometimes, it’s ok to borrow ideas from the competition. After all, FIFA has done the same in the past.

2. Real ball physics
Ok, so the ball physics in PES 2015 aren’t terrible, but the way the ball moves needs looking at. At the moment, there’s little variation - you can almost predict the trajectory of a pass or shot before you’ve let go of the corresponding button. It’s something you’ll notice the more you play PES 2015.

Like I said, it doesn’t ruin the game, but real ball physics and data would certainly help cement PES 2016 as the football connoisseur’s choice. A tricky one to get right without messing things up, but if Konami manage it, it would be a glorious.

3. A proper collision system
As it stands, there isn’t a proper collision system in PES 2015. The way players collide and interact is basic, akin to a couple of action figures coming together. It’s not particularly natural and doesn’t make PES feel like a proper simulation.

As a result, fouls are given when they shouldn’t be, or you get away with grievous bodily harm. It’s usually one or the other, resulting in immense frustration.

If I’m being realistic, I don’t think we’re likely to see a sophisticated collision system in PES 2016. It’s a lot of hard work and something that can’t be implemented properly with just a year’s worth of development time. Just look at FIFA!

When EA introduced their system it came with bugs (and unintended hilarity) galore, only settling down to something decent the next year. Fingers crossed Konami has been working on collision for a couple of years then, eh?

4. Animations, animations, animations!
More animations please, Konami! It’s as simple as that really. There was definitely an increase in PES 2015, but still not enough to satisfy the masses.

Goalkeepers were more reliable between the sticks, but their animations were limited to say the least. Play a few matches and you’ve seen them all. Not only that, some weren’t particularly realistic, with even some of the best shot stoppers in the world diving and saving with the wrong hand.

Keepers aside, the game in general could do with better, smoother animations. Right now, the transition between animations can (in most cases) be pinpointed. For PES 2016, that needs to be ironed out for a superior, fluid gameplay experience.
For the most part, PES 2015 delivered great visuals, which should come as no surprise given that it took advantage of the fantastic FOX Engine. That said, it seems like the PES team are struggling to get the best out of its lighting system, particularly during evening matches. It was a problem in PES 2014 as well; under floodlights, the game failed to show off the impressive player models and stadiums. After another year with the FOX Engine, here’s hoping Konami have figured out how to make the most of it for PES 2016.

And then we have the audio. Commentary, need I say more? Repetitive, boring and lifeless, it’s been a problem in PES for many years. Come on, Konami… Sort it out this year. Please! Oh, and some of the menus could look better, too!

6. Better CPU AI
Again, viewed as a whole, the AI for both teams and players in PES 2015 is very good; a combination of good programming and statistics. However, there are areas where the AI can improve.

It would be great if the believability/quality of the AI could trickle down to some of the lesser known teams and players, not just the well-known ones. Also, while team's playing styles are decent, it would be great if the AI crossed the ball now and again. I could probably count the number of times the CPU has crossed the ball against me in open play on one hand. Last time I checked, Bayern Munich players do cross the ball into the box!

Finally, referees… Every foul shouldn't result in a card. That said, weirdly enough, playing against the CPU, you’re rarely fouled. Tweaks to the AI are definitely required for PES 2016!

<![CDATA[PES 2016 TO FEATURE MORE LICENSES THAN EVER BEFORE]]>Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:40:15 GMThttp://pes-community.weebly.com/pes-news/pes-2016-to-feature-more-licenses-than-ever-beforeKonami's focus for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will be to gain new licenses more than ever. Erik Bladinieres, Global Director of Konami's Football Division, revealed in an interview with PESaurios that Konami is set to sign new deals to include more licensed teams and leagues in PES 2016.

In the last few weeks there have been rumors that Konami could lose their exclusive UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League license. While Konami secured Europe's best club competitions for the first time in 2008, the deal was extended in 2012. Even though no contract details were disclosed at the time, it's very likely that the current Konami UEFA deal runs for four years until 2016.
Erik Bladinieres disclosed that Konami will put the focus on new licenses for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, while the series will keep most of their current licensed competitions, leagues and clubs. Although the Global Director of Konami's Football Division didn't reveal further details in the interview, he announced that PES will feature never-seen-before licenses, some of them to be announced as soon as June.

There will be no more updates for PES 2015 to improve the licensing situation of the Brazilian league, Erik Bladinieres also revealed. It would anyway be a priority for Konami to include the Brazilian league in PES 2016, even though it would be very complex to sign a deal due to the poor organization of the Brasileirão.

Yesterday, we already reported that Konami will release the first official PES 2016 News at the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final (June 6) and E3 2015 (June 16-18) in June 2016.
