According to PES series producer Shingo "Seabass" Takatsuka this year's instalment in the PES franchise will offer improvements over the 2010 game on many levels.
Fans can expect graphical and gameplay enhancements, with the development team having gone back to the drawing board to rethink their core concepts and ideas which have remained the same for over a decade.
Without giving too much away, Seabass said that up until the development of PES 2011 the team had a "Famicom-like" belief that good controls meant fast player movement, which had lead to more recent releases feeling too fast. The speed of players is one area Seabass and the team are tuning during development.
Even with the promise of much change, the game is still expected this November/December, and is currently 30 per cent complete.
