Today Konami made several announcements regarding some of the licenses they have secured for PES 2009.
The first one saw PES 2009 and subsequent titles become the "Official Football Video Game of Liverpool FC". This is said not only to feature the "most realistic video game re-creation" of a Liverpool team but Konami and Liverpool will also team up on several promotional campaigns. These are said to include digital advertising over at Anfield's LED hoardings and a regular presence in Liverpool's Official Magazine.
The second announcement sees Liverpool's fiercest rivals, Manchester United get the full license treatment as well. The game will feature the most detailed likenesses of the European Champions, and will make full use of the team’s kits and club crests.
Last, but by no means least, Konami have also managed to secure a 4 year deal with UEFA for the Champions League. This years edition will feature the full licensed competition in its entirety including all elements and attributes of the competition to create an exclusive UEFA Champions League mode within the PES game.
PES 2009 will be available on October the 17th for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
