The way Konami is going forward with ‘PES 2020’ this year, it seems like the company is all set to take out FIFA once and for all. First the change in nomenclature from ‘PES 2020’ to ‘eFootball PES 2020’, then the acquisition of exclusive licenses to teams like Manchester United, Juventus F.C., Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Arsenal and more. Konami has even snatched EURO 2020 rights from EA after seizing Serie A rights just a few days ago. And now, Konami has announced that mobile version of the game is also going to be renamed as ‘eFootball PES 2020’ and is all set for a roll out in both iOS and Android, this fall.
The company further says that most of the new features including teams, kits, player names, stadiums that are coming to PC and console, will also be featuring on the mobile version of the game. However, we can’t bet on that for now, but we surely will be getting much-improved visuals as compared to its predecessor and speculations point out to the fact that it has something to do with the cross-platform Matchday mode.
This new mode will allow players to team up for specially-timed matches online “to earn amazing rewards”. Konami says you’ll be aligning yourself with one of two sides to work together with both newcomers and seasoned vets to “gradually build an advantage for your side ahead of a grand final showdown”
The second half of this year is turning out to be a great one for gaming fans. With so many trailers making their way out during the Gamescom 2019, and now, Konami is bringing in some really new updates to the game.
