Pro Evo 2008 Headed To Wii This March

Konami have confirmed that PES 2008 will be hitting Wii this March, and will supposedly make full use of the Wii’s unique control system. Do we believe them?

Well, hopefully it will all work out well, as Konami boast that the PES 2008 Wii experience will be a more ‘team-orientated’ one, using the Wiimote in a way that mirrors the real sport’s use of open space and the exploitation of defensive lapses and accurate passes essential in creating scoring opportunities.

It was vital that the Wii version of PES 2008 made full use of the hardware’s innovative control system, and we are extremely pleased with what the team has come up with,” commented Jon Murphy, Pro Evolution Soccer Team Leader. “It feels as if you have total control over the entire team and the use of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to both implement moves and send players into space or off to make runs is remarkably intuitive. It adds a new layer of realism, and makes this Wii version an essential PES experience.
