According to Sport, Neymar is apparently not just going to be the face of “PES 2016.” The day he started posting images of his character in “PES 2016” was the day he was also confirmed to be the featured athlete of the Brazilian edition for EA Sport’s “FIFA 16.” The Brazilian national will appear alongside Argentine professional footballer Lionel Messi and Brazilian midfielder Oscar.
The football simulation game for this year is deemed special as it marks the 20th anniversary of the PES franchise. During the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 held in June, Japanese developer Konami announced that it has extended its license for the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, and the UEFA Europe League until 2018.
“PES 2016” is expected to be released this September and will be available on gaming consoles such as the PC, the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A special Anniversary Edition of the game will also be exclusively available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 users.
According to the game’s official website, the popular football game is already up for digital pre-order but for PlayStation consoles only. The pre-ordered games come with some perks depending on what edition gamers have pre-ordered. Players have two editions to choose from – the Day One and the Anniversary Edition.
