Much is expected from PES 2010, after the franchise was as good as rebooted following recent editions that delivered a lower than expected football experience.

We've been playing the game for a few weeks now and we can report that it's certainly looking good, but you won't have to take our word for it; Konami has confirmed that a demo is incoming.

"Not long to go now until we release a demo for everyone to test," said Konami's European PES Team Leader Jon Murphy. "You'll get a chance to see the new PES for yourselves and make up your minds about how we've reflected what the what fans want."

There's no word on exactly when the demo will be released.

PES 2010 is scheduled for release for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 22, with versions for PS2 and PSP to follow on November 5 and Wii on November 19.
