Despite having barely made it’s way onto store shelves, developer Konami are keen to prove their worth as the kings of DLC (Downloadable Content) with a whole host of new football boots and some new kits landing on PES 2012 tomorrow.
Despite many reviewers giving FIFA 12 the nod this year over the Pre Evolution franchise, one area in which Konami always come up trumps is providing update packs for all the big football boots and kits releases.
The 2012 incarnation of the popular soccer sim is set to be no different, as the digital stars of the game will be able to kit themselves out in a host of new gear that didn’t quite make it in time for the release.
Whilst past updates have included new football boots from the likes of Umbro & Mizuno, this update includes only soccer cleats from the ‘big three’ of Nike, adidas & Puma.
As well as new boots, 29 teams will have their kits updated including Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Sporting Lisbon and Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
New football boots in PES 2012 DLC:
adidas adiPower Predator – Black / Sharp Blue Metallic / Electricity
Nike Tiempo Legend IV – Black / White / Max Orange
Puma King Finale – Black/Metallic Gold
We’re a little bamboozled as to how the new Volt Superfly III’s manages to get into the line-up but not any of the other new Nike winter releases; particularly the Nike T90 Laser IV, which you would expect Nike to want to be everywhere as it gears up for release.
But still, Gift Horses and mouths and all that – we thing that’s a pretty good update, so props to Konami for getting this update out there so quickly!
Which boots would you like to see in the next piece of DLC?
