Konami today has confirmed that they have partnered with Rangers and Celtic for the latest release of PES 2019 and also confirms a Special Edition release. Both clubs will be getting their own limited edition club version of the game.
Konami also recently announced not so long ago that they have secured the rights to the Scottish league. The Rangers’ club, its stars and the iconic Ibrox Stadium – which will be made available via download after launch – will all be perfectly recreated in the forthcoming PES 2019.
Rangers Managing Director Stewart Robertson said:
“We are delighted to have entered into this new partnership with KONAMI and are excited to see the club and the players perfectly represented within PES 2019.”
“With this partnership with Rangers we add another massive club to the growing PES roster,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “Scottish football enjoys some of the loudest and most ardent fans of any league, and we look forward to this passion manifesting as Rangers makes its debut in PES 2019.”
Gordon Kaye – Head of Business Development at Celtic FC remarked:
“We are delighted to be partnering with KONAMI at such an exciting time for the PES Series. The gameplay and player detail in PES 2019 is simply stunning and we have no doubt Celtic fans will be excited at the prospect of seeing the Double Treble Champions emulated in such a realistic way.“
“Celtic is a hugely successful club and we are delighted to be working closely with them,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “Our job now is to ensure Celtic’s presence is perfectly recreated within PES 2019 and we look forward to seeing the fans’ reactions when all the work being put into this is complete and we reveal everything – more updates coming soon – watch this space!”
