This joins the UEFA Champions League license already in use. The next title will be using Kojima Productions' Fox Engine to power it, they revealed last month.
A dedicated mode is being added that will feature the 32 teams which comprise the AFC Champions League tournament.
"The acquisition of such a high-profile license such as the AFC Champions League is integral to our ambitious plans for the Pro Evolution Soccer series,” commented Shinji Hirano, President for Konami Digital Entertainment. “We look forward to a long and successful partnership with the Asian Football Confederation, as we look to bring the passion and skill of the AFC Champions League to vivid life.”
“We are very excited to see the AFC Champions League integrated into the acclaimed Pro Evolution Soccer series, and foresee a long, close and mutually beneficial partnership for us both," added Dr. Hafez Al Medlej, Chairman of the Asian Football Confederation Marketing Committee.
