A few days ago, Konami had announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2012, which featured Cristiano Ronaldo during the launch of a free kick. Now, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, Santos main striker player would also join Cristiano Ronaldo on the PES 2012 US Cover.
Neymar’s minutes were decisive for Santos in the Copa Santander Libertadores, in which the Brazilian team came out as the champion, in a stellar match against Peñarol (from Uruguay). Since Neymar is one of the most electric and well respected Brazilian soccer player at the age of 19, as well as an already known presence on Pro Evolution Soccer 2012, Konami has decided to put him on the cover of the franchise’s new iteration.
PES 2012 gives the user more control than any other football title, with all-new AI elements and off-the-ball control creating a game where the user can move players into dangerous areas during set pieces, or control second player to create space or make runs using the new Teammate Control system.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is slated for release on September 27 in the United States for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. Release dates for Wii, PlayStation 2 and PSP versions of Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 have yet to be announced.
