But with Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, Konami are promising a "radical revamp".

It's due this Fall on all the major Playstation platforms. That is: PS3, PSP and PS2.

New features include improved defenders AI and reworked animations. But the biggie comes in the form of an online version of the series' Master League mode. Familiar tournaments like the Europa and Champions League will also make their return in PES 2011.

“It was time for PES to transform, and PES 2011 represents the most ambitious redesign in the series’ history,” said Jon Murphy, Europe's Pro Evo team leader.

“We’ve continued to work closely with the fans to pinpoint what it is about football that PES didn’t do. Total freedom was the priority and all-new animation a must. PES 2011 does both – indeed, they are directly linked to each other – and while the new game is recognizably PES at its heart, it is also the most radically improved version ever.”
