Konami will announce PES 2012 in the next few days, revealing the first information on the publisher's latest instalment in the hugely popular football video game series.

"PES2012 announcement expected in a few days," Tweeted PES Team Leader Jon Murphy. "Seabass will be talking about some key improvements."

PES 2012 is likely to launch on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

PES 2011 was a step in the right direction, but FIFA 11 still managed to extend the quality gap between the two products. We're hoping this year's PES will prove an even larger improvement, but once again FIFA is shaping up to be something pretty special.
