Konami has today announced a new licensing agreement that will bring 20 teams from across Brazil to Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.
Some of the prestigious football clubs from the region, including Palmeiras and Santos will be included this year with updated rosters, current kits, and stadiums.
The list of teams includes Flamengo, Corinthians, São Paulo, Santos, Portuguesa, Internacional, Palmeiras, Fluminense, Ponte Preta, Coritiba, Grêmio, Vasco, Atlético Mieiro, Bahia, Atlético Goianiense, Sport, Figueirense, Náutico, Botafogo, and Cruzeiro.
"The Latin American region, particularly Brazil, continues to grow tremendously for us, so it's important we bring teams and licenses from this region," said Erik Bladinieres, Director of Latin America for Konami. "Bringing in these teams from Brazil, along with the Copa Libertadores license, makes PES 2013 the most authentic soccer experience available in the market."
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 will be available in Fall 2013 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. For the latest on the game, read our PES 2013 Preview from E3.
