'eFootball PES 2021' (ALL) Signs Partnership With Japanese Superstar Kazuyoshi Miura

eFootball PES 2021 is a Season Update that delivers all the features and gameplay from eFootball PES 2020 with the latest player/club data for the new season as well as exclusive UEFA EURO 2020 content and the Iconic Moments Series.

As the eFootball PES franchise celebrates its 25th anniversary since its debut in 1995 and over 100 million copies sold, Konami invites football fans all over the world to join them once again as they head out onto the pitch for a new action-packed season of football and prepare for the future.

Konami announced the signing of Kazuyoshi Miura (Kazu) to a partnership agreement. With a career spanning five decades, the 54-year old forward continues to build upon his playing legacy, recently setting the record for world’s oldest professional goal scorer. Starting today, Kazu will be immortalized through the eFootball PES series.

“I am excited to announce this partnership with Konami and to be part of the eFootball PES franchise,” said Muira. “I am humbled to have Konami recognize the many decades I have given to football by giving fans a way to relive and bask in those magical moments.”

Kazuyoshi Miura began his professional career in 1986 with Brazilian powerhouse Santos F.C., spending two stops in a Peixe uniform while honing his craft amongst the country’s elite. His return to Japan in 1990 featured hundreds more professional club appearances including 89 caps for the National team. In 1994, Kazu further gained international acclaim by becoming the first Japanese footballer to play for a first division Italian club. Today, at 54, Kazu is the oldest active professional footballer playing in Japan’s top-flight league.

To celebrate the agreement and legendary career of “King Kazu”, along with other Japanese players past and present, Konami will host multiple eFootball PES 2021 in-game campaigns for console and mobile, including revisiting Kazu’s time with Santos as part of the Iconic Moment series. The Kazuyoshi Miura Partnership Log-in Campaign begins today where fans can earn his Legend, along with the #VamosJ Campaign on social media.

More details will be shared soon via the official PES social media channels and in-game.
