But then again, it’s free to play! I guess. And it seems mobile gamers are able to play with other platforms, so that might explain the noticeable dip in visual quality.

What’s the reaction been like online? Fans seem saddened by Konami’s decision to kill off the PES brand, pointing out the emotional connection it has with players. Others were let down by the graphics and herky-jerky animation, especially considering the amount of time that went into the game.

According to Konami, eFootball, sorry, eFootball™ launches this fall.

Rest in power, PES. RIP, indeed.
