Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has released details of the licensed track listing within its PES 2016 title.
With music becoming ever more synonymous with the big game experience, KONAMI has compiled a series of licensed tracks for use within the award-wining game. Menus, in-game elements and match days are complemented by a series of suitably upbeat tracks, perfectly mirroring the use of music as part of the match day experience in leagues across the globe.

The soundtrack is announced as PES 2016 nears its September 17th/18th release, marking the series’ 20th anniversary. The game was voted ‘Best Sports Game’ for the second year running by the gamescom judging panel, and hits the field with a wealth of new gameplay additions and advances.
