PES 2019: Konami have just signed another massive club

They're taking the battle to EA Sports

Konami has signed an agreement with AS Monaco for PES 2019.

This means that every member of the squad will have their playing style and accurate stats.

All kits will also be faithfully integrated into the game.

As part of the agreement, the publisher will produce a dedicated cover featuring stars from the top-flight club.

The French iteration of PES 2019 will also boast a specially-created cover featuring global star Phillipe Coutinho and AS Monaco Captain Radamel Falcao.

Based at the iconic Stade Louis II in Fontvieille, AS Monaco is one of French football’s most successful clubs, winning eight league titles, six domestic cups, and are regular participants in European competitions.

“This is a wide-ranging agreement with AS Monaco, which will see this illustrious club working closely with Konami across a number of avenues,” said Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami.

“We look forward to a long and productive partnership that will show the scale and ambition Konami has for the PES series.”

“The growth of eSports and the reputation of the PES series make this partnership with Konami very exciting,” said Juli Ferre, AS Monaco Commercial and Marketing Director.

PES 2019 will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 30.
