With preparations for World Cup 2002 well underway, Konami of Europe (KOE) is preparing a virtual football treat for all those who can't get enough of the beautiful game. It's a formidable line up and the new instalment of the ISS series will be available for PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube during the second quarter.

ISS 2 is the latest offering from Konami CE Osaka, creators of Konami's successful International Superstar Soccer series. Its arcade style gameplay is based on realistic and intuitive football action, and ISS 2's fluid and detailed style allows the gamer greater scope for their flexing virtual football talent, with the open gameplay ensuring that no two goals or build-up play will be the same.

With more than 50 international teams and a wealth of game modes, ISS 2 is huge. Featuring real player names thanks to the FIFPro licence, ISS2 allows players to step into the boots of their favourite players to tackle, dribble and score their way to glory on every next generation platform.

"ISS was the first football game from Konami of Europe to be recognized by gamers for its superb playability", states Wolfgang Ebert, European PR Manager from KOE. "ISS 2 is a great compliment to the ultra realistic Pro Evolution Soccer series. Its arcade style action is a must for serious football gamers and their pick-up-and-play counterparts alike."

ISS 2 for PlayStation 2 is set for a release in April, with Xbox and GameCube versions to follow.
