PES 2017 will release in the UK on September 15, Konami has confirmed.

The date pins PES two weeks ahead of FIFA 17, which launches in the UK on September 29. Both games will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, although US media reports that the PC and last-gen console versions of PES 2017 will retail for $39.99, $20 cheaper than the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

Konami has yet to confirm UK prices.

This year's game promises a "new standard of visual realism" and "incredible new control elements", with pre-order customers set to receive "many bonus items for myClub". Expect to hear more on those soon.

Burns went hands-on with PES 2017 last month and, as he tends to do with things like this, came away quite excited for this year's game.
