Konami announced the launch of PES 2012 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store. The App enjoys a raft of additions specifically designed to make full use of the hardware. PES 2012 is available for free with additional content offered through In-App Purchase.
Like its console counterparts, the game features truly realistic AI and all-new game modes. Leading the charge is the Super Challenge mode, which allows users to build a team of the world’s best players, and lead them to victory. Players can then download similar teams created by friends from a cloud server and play against them – before posting the scores online via Facebook.
Players can move both on and off the ball, while goalkeepers have been enhanced to close down attacks, react acrobatically to tip shots past the post, and will come off their line to claim a loose ball. The individuality of players is also highlighted and the world’s greatest stars are recognizable by their movements, ability and pace. Each player’s behavior is governed by a wealth of stats, and this allows users to create scoring opportunities by exploiting the strengths of their chosen team.
The PES 2012 App offers an extensive choice of licensed teams, both national and club, and is also the only game to exclusively feature the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League competitions. It also features fully licensed representations of Spain’s Liga BBVA, France Ligue 1, and many others. Thus, players can opt to play full seasons, compete in cup competitions, or play friends online via wi-fi or Bluetooth connections. Matches are further enhanced with full commentaries, and the game also includes mini-games where players can opt for a Quick Play match or practice shooting skills via the brand new Free Kick Challenge.
