You’d swear with all the FIFA 12 coverage we’re churning out today that it was the only footie game out there with a 12 after it. Not so. Konami have countered with the first small batch of Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 in-game screens.
Get them above and below. What follows is the short PR press release that accompanied the screens.

KONAMI shows PES 2012 improvements
Konami Digital Entertainment GMbH today revealed the first in-game images from its forthcoming PES 2012 title, showcasing the newly-implemented movements and animations the new game enjoys.
The new screens show a variety of situations from within PES 2012 that have been bolstered by new animations, visual enhancements and control elements. The Tokyo-based team has worked hard to ensure PES 2012 is a more fluid and playable experience, with the jostling system used in last year’s game now enhanced to offer proper bodily contact and physical reactions, while close control and the team AI has been reworked to provide a more realistic recreation of real football.
As such, PES 2012 gives the player total control, with dribbling now refined, while passing and build-up play are enhanced by AI that ensures teammates will make dummy runs and support the player with the ball.
PES 2012 will be released later in the year.
