Alongside today’s Nintendo 3DS Conference held within both Europe and North America, Konami has announced that its acclaimed football series, Pro Evolution Soccer, is due to star amidst the handheld’s launch line-up.
Having been designed specifically with the stereoscopic capabilities of the system in mind, PES 2011 3D is set to offer Nintendo 3DS owners with an immersive take on the genre – not only mixing the PES series’ established level of control and realism, but enhancing such facets with the added visual depth that the Nintendo 3DS allows.
Players will be able to select from 60 National and 170 club sides, and will then lead their chosen side to glory across a range of challenging tournaments and leagues. Utilising the 3D views that the system allows, PES 2011 3D is set to place you at the heart of every pass, through-ball and shot, with a stunning active ‘Player’ camera centring on the user’s every movement, whilst aiming to dynamically follow the action as it happens. Such 3D capabilities allow the game’s realism to be experiences in an entirely different level, as the visuals utilise both depth and distance perception. Camera views now allow the player to be able to visually ascertain how far away a team mate is, allowing for more instinctive long passes and dynamic movement.
The game’s efficient AI ensures that players not only look identical to their real-life counterparts, but they move and react like them too. Also, PES 2011 3D will incorporate the UEFA Champions League competition, and the legendary Master League.It also enjoys full commentary of the in-game action, while wireless play allows two Nintendo 3DS users to compete against each other.
Further to this, the game also makes use of the Nintendo 3DS’ innovative ‘Street Pass’ mode, with which the handheld is able to sense another user with a stored Master League team, and will then compare data. The user with the stronger team will be deemed the winner, while reaching specific targets will also unlock new players and teams for use in the main game.
