Konami has announced current Scottish Premiership Champions 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 Glasgow 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.
Celtic enjoys an illustrious history, and enters the new season looking for an eighth title in a row – and the 50th in their history. They first played in 1888 and have enjoyed incredible domestic and European success. They have won 55 domestic cups and boast a huge global fan base.
The partnership comes as KONAMI integrates the full Scottish Premiership into the PES series for the first time. Each of the twelve competing 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 1000 will be available, and demand is certain to be great. Further details on content will follow.
