KONAMI Digital Entertainment BV has announced Celtic as its latest partner club for the forthcoming PES 2019. KONAMI will also produce a special, limited club edition of the game for fans.
Fresh from winning their seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership title, Celtic’s club, its stars and the iconic Celtic Park - which will be made available via download after launch - will all be perfectly recreated in the forthcoming PES 2019. KONAMI will be employing its stunning 3D scanning systems to ensure that the club’s squad are perfectly represented in-game. Each player will be scanned by dozens of cameras from every angle, while KONAMI’s technical team will ensure that individual skills and abilities, along with playing styles, are matched in every way.
The partnership comes as KONAMI integrates the full Scottish Premiership into the PES series for the first time. Each of the clubs will appear in official kits and iconography through post-launch data pack releases and ensure that all stats and squads are updated on a weekly basis.
Celtic’s massive contribution, however, will be celebrated with a Limited Edition club version of PES 2019. Fans will be able to purchase a specially-branded Celtic Edition featuring bespoke DLC and content. Only 1,000 will be available, and demand is certain to be great. Further details on content will follow.
Gordon Kaye, Head of Business Development at Celtic, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with KONAMI at such an exciting time for the PES Series. The gameplay and player detail in PES 2019 is simply stunning and we have no doubt Celtic fans will be excited at the prospect of seeing the Double Treble champions emulated in such a realistic way.“
Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment BV, said “Celtic is a hugely successful club and we are delighted to be working closely with them.
“Our job now is to ensure Celtic’s presence is perfectly recreated within PES 2019 and we look forward to seeing the fans’ reactions when all the work being put into this is complete and we reveal everything – more updates coming soon – watch this space!”
