There will be a 2010 release of Konami's venerable football series Pro Evolution Soccer. It will be called Pro Evolution Soccer 2011. If you need a moment to compose yourself, now is the time.

New features promised are a new animation system, new AI, new commentary (FINALLY) and, most promising, an online Master League.


In terms of official competition licenses, the Champions League and Europa League return, and are joined by South Americas's premiere club comp the Copa Liberadores.

I know what you're thinking. And it's what I'm thinking, too! Konami's salvaging of this series from beneath FIFA's treads will depend on how it all fits together with a controller in the hand, not some words in a press release and a threadbare trailer.
