Konami is planning to open a London studio to help assist with the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise.
The publisher is hoping to instill a more authentic European feel to the football series. The IP has been mainly developed within Japan. Several artists, a localization team and developers are expected to be a part of the new studio.
A job listing initially outed Konami's plan to open the studio in the capital.
"PES Productions is opening a new "Football game productions" in London in order to continue striving to reproduce European football culture at its best in their games. The production will create PES projects targeting high-end game consoles and PCs."
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, the umpteenth installment of the iconic franchise, is due for a release during the opening stages of October, 2012.
