Konami Announces PES 2016 with Neymar Jr. Gracing the Cover

Konami today announced the latest iteration of the PES franchise, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. Along with the game’s announcement it was revealed that Brazil’s Neymar Jr. will be featured on the game’s cover.

Konami teased that the game would get a full reveal this Friday, June 12th, even withholding the cover featuring Neymar until then. When asked about being on the game’s cover Neymar said,

This is a real honour for me to be cover star for PES 2016. The series has long been praised for its sheer level of control and utter realism and I am delighted to be working with such a talented team as Konami.

The only further detail revealed was that players who pre-order the new title will be able to use Neymar Jr. in myClub, the series’ new team-building mode introduced last year.

We’ll have to wait until Friday for any more details but until then you can check out the teaser trailer Konami released alongside the announcement.
