PES 2012 adds January transfer update, bonus free DLC

By Alan Ng - Mar 1, 2012

FIFA 12 players are now getting tucked into the game with the fresh January Transfer updates that have now been put in place, and we’re pleased to say that the ‘other’ game, PES 2012 is also getting a dose of the same treatment next week.

Konami has just announced that the January transfer updates will be implemented into the game on March 6 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game. As we told you when we were speaking about the update for FIFA, it will now mean that PES players will be able to call on the likes of Paul Scholes for Manchester United, and Papiss Demba Cisse for Newcastle.

At the moment, there’s no word on if the update will alter any player stats such as making Fernando Torres less effective in game in accordance with his form for Chelsea at the moment, or if the game will be making Robin Van Persie even better.

You’ll also be pleased to hear that the transfer updates are not the only thing that is coming to PES 2012 for free. The update will also include brand new kits for the Spanish, Japanese and German national teams, as well as eight new boot styles to choose over from Nike and Adidas. As one further treat, Konami has also said that the update will add the Adidas Finale Munich ball to the game, which is meant to be the ball that will be used for this year’s Champions League Final.

Are you still playing PES 2012 regularly? There’s a lot of talk now that FIFA 12 is superior in every way, which is a little bit disappointing since PES used to be the football game of choice a few years ago.
