Konami is currently busy working on the latest game in the Pro Evolution series, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015. Today the first real glimpse of the game was made available with a very Juventus-centric trailer. The 48-second trailer is dominated almost entirely by the Italian side Juventus and a few of its star players, though their opponents in the match - Bayern Munich - do get the odd look in. Previously, all fans had seen of Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 was a brief teaser trailer which revealed little more than the tagline for the upcoming title "The Pitch Is Ours".
Unfortunately, as is the case with many game trailers these days, the actual game content is only around 28 seconds of the whole 48 second trailer. What it does display however are some decent looking visuals of a few Juventus stars doing their thing. From Andrea Pirlo pulling off a wonderful back-heel, to Paul Pogba scoring a goal with a well timed header.
Carrying on with the Juventus theme, though I’m unsure as to why one team in particular takes such focus, a series of screenshots were also unveiled. The screenshots provide a couple of nice, if a bit boring, stadium shots to go along with some close ups of four Juventus players. Current World Cup stars Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal feature alongside former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez and the impressive looking hair of Spaniard Fernando Llorente.
It’s very early in production of Pro Evolution Soccer 15, so I would be wary of drawing too many conclusions from the content revealed so far. What has been revealed looks decent, if perhaps not quite the step up from the previous edition that I would have liked to have seen. Just like its predecessor, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 will also be running in a modified version of the Fox Engine.
More features are set to be announced July 3, but as of yet little else is known about the upcoming title beyond a confirmed release on PlayStation 4. Hopefully next week will bring a proper release schedule and console list.
