PES 2018: Konami have just had an absolute shocker

Latest PES trailer shows Neymar in Barcelona colours

Konami released the PES 2018 Chile trailer today and it looks amazing apart from one pretty big mistake.

At the end of the video, Neymar is clearly still on the game’s covers wearing Barcelona colours – despite the fact he signed for Paris-Saint Germain hours before the trailer was released.

The former Barcelona player, 25, was an integral part of the PES 2018 marketing campaign – and was used in an earlier reveal trailer.

However, the Japanese publisher now faces an uphill task of trying to find a replacement after the Brazilian completed the £198million move to France.

It’s not only us that noticed the huge mistake by Konami; Twitter has been in meltdown over the blunder – with many demanding who will be taking his place.

It comes as FIFA 18 developer EA last night revealed Neymar in PSG colours using the in-game Frostbite engine – posting a short trailer of him in action on Twitter.

Earlier in the week, Konami revealed that Usain Bolt will be playable for those who pre-order PES 2018.

The sprinter will be the fastest player in the game, which launches on September 14.

FIFA 18 meanwhile, kicks off on September 29 – and features Cristiano Ronaldo on the cover.
