KONAMI ANNOUNCES EXCLUSIVE LICENSE FOR ITALY’S SERIE BKT, COMING SOON TO eFootball PES 2020
Team kits, names, logos and more will be added to console and mobile later this month
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. announced today that Italy’s second division football league Serie BKT will be fully licensed and exclusive in eFootball PES 2020, making it the only football video game on console and mobile to feature the complete Serie BKT experience.
The license agreement between KONAMI and Serie BKT means that the league logo, trophy and associated badges, plus team kits and names will be added to eFootball PES 2020 on PC and console later this month via a data pack.
The same Serie BKT content will also be featured in the upcoming eFootball PES 2020 on mobile update.
Following several new license agreements this year, including Juventus and Italy’s Serie A TIM league, eFootball PES 2020 continues to push forward the series’ reputation for authenticity and realism in-game.
Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V. commented, “Our commitment to securing league and team licenses for eFootball PES goes beyond just the top-flight competitions and clubs. We firmly believe in recreating the complete professional experience, including the highs and lows that come with club promotion and relegations. Our exclusive agreement with Italy’s Serie BKT league is a clear sign of that commitment and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”
eFootball PES 2020 is now available to purchase on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™, and PC STEAM through participating retail and digital stores.
