Konami of Europe has announced that the highly anticipated Pro Evolution Soccer 2 for PlayStation 2 will be released across Europe on October 25th.

Widely renowned as the definitive football by both games-players and football aficionados alike, Pro Evolution Soccer 2 has emerged as one of the most sought-after games for PlayStation 2. Following the huge success of Pro Evolution Soccer, the sequel has been improved in every way, with Konami Computer Entertainment TYO's game the most realistic and playable football title for any format, faithfully recreating all the shots, passes, through balls and volleys of the real thing.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2 also boasts players benefiting from over 25 skill factors, including attacking nature, balance, stamina, strength and shot and pass accuracy, each of which endow the players with differing abilities and playing styles. The game's extensive 'Player Create' option also allows fans to recreate their favourite players for use in the game, determining their appearance and performance using the aforementioned attributes, while also highlighting a further 19 specific key skills and abilities.

With a three division 'Master League', numerous International and club tournaments and an UMBRO-endorsed training stage, Pro Evolution Soccer 2 is the unrivalled star in the football genre.

"The October 25th release date means that we will be able to bring Pro Evolution Soccer 2 to gamers even earlier than we hoped," commented Kunio Neo, President for Konami of Europe. "Press and public enthusiasm for the game just grows and grows, and we fully anticipate that Pro Evolution Soccer 2 will become another million-selling title for Konami of Europe."

The PSone version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2 will follow shortly afterwards.
