PES 2013 will feature licensed Brazilian club teams for the first time in the series, Konami has announced.
The publisher has licensed 20 teams: Flamengo, Corinthians, São Paulo, Santos, Portuguesa, Internacional, Palmeiras, Fluminense, Ponte Preta, Coritiba, Grêmio, Vasco, Atlético Mieiro, Bahia, Atlético Goianiense, Sport, Figueirense, Náutico, Botafogo, Cruzeiro.
"Bringing in these teams from Brazil, along with the Copa Libertadores license, makes PES 2013 the most authentic soccer experience available in the market," claimed Konami Latin America director Erik Bladinieres.
Earlier this week Konami announced that it had extended its exclusive agreement with UEFA for the use of the Champions League and Europa League competitions in PES.
A second, "improved" PES 2013 demo will be released on consoles next week.
