Konami and Arsenal announce partnership


Looks like Wenger has finally made a signing. 

Konami have today announced a joint partnership with football club Arsenal.

Appearing as a licensed club in PES 2017, this deal allowed Konami to use the club’s branding and players in the game.

Full 3D scanning software will be used to digitally recreate every player from the Arsenal team, and will be used to ensure each player runs, passes and moves as they do in real life.

Vinai Venkatesham, Chief Commerical Officer at Arsenal said of the deal;

“Our working relationship with KONAMI to date has been extremely successful from a licensing
perspective and we are delighted to extend this and welcome them as an official partner. We look forward to getting started in the next phase of our relationship with KONAMI and creating some fun and exciting content that both Arsenal and wider football fans will enjoy.”

Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director of Brand and Business Development at Konami;

“We are determined to work with the very best clubs football has to offer and are delighted to partner with Arsenal. The relationship we formed last year has gone from strength to
strength, most notably when Emirates Stadium played host to the PES LEAGUE World Final. As
such, we were keen to work even closer with such a highly regarded club and the new agreement will allow us to perfectly recreate and feature Emirates Stadium, and the club’s many stars, within PES 2018.”
