Konami has finally locked in a release date for PES 2013 on PS3, PC and 360 – the game is out in just two weeks, on September 21st.
And yep, that’s just a week before the arrival of EA’s rival game, FIFA 13.
PES 2013 has been reclaiming ground lost to EA Sports’ game this year, with positive previews from the specialist press thanks in part to the new ‘PES Full Control’., which give players full manual control over every pass and shot, and new Pro Active AI.
Konami has also detailed the pre-order incentive for PES 2013 – a limited UEFA Champions League steelbook edition, which includes special DLC code to redeem the Historic UEFA Champions League Match Balls used in the competition and other official elements.
The UK will also offer a second, Manchester United-themed steelbook edition for pre-orders, boasting the club’s livery on its cover.
Date for the PSP, PS2, 3DS and Wii version are still TBC and will be announced shortly.
