Konami Believes PES Can Catch Up to FIFA in the Coming Years

September 17, 2015 Written by Mark Labbe

PES 16 was just released, and while FIFA 16 isn’t coming out until next week, Konami believes that PES will be able to catch up with EA’s FIFA in the coming years.

Product Manager Adam Bhatti explained that he believes the gap between the two games is being closed, and in a “couple of years” PES will “clearly lead again.”

We’re definitely catching up with FIFA, and we have to be respectful about that. We have to keep closing that gap. In a couple of years we’ll clearly lead again. But we have to convince a lot of people.

There are things we can’t control like licences, but in terms of presentation, visuals, we want to be industry leading.

In other PES 16 news, the title’s launch trailer has just been released, and can be seen above. Do you believe PES will catch up to FIFA? And be sure keep a lookout for our incoming PES 16 review.
