It may not have the abundance of bells and whistles we’re used to once a Konami Pro Evolution Soccer game is announced, but Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 has a couple of advances that will blow the other soccer games out of the water; we’re looking at you, EA!

We’ll leave the rest of the explaining to our gorgeous Gamer Next Door Jo Garcia and one of the guys who actually worked on the game to tell us a bit more about the final product.

Playing PES 2013 on your PS3? Then you’ve probably noticed that your team is playing way more cohesively — Konami has worked on more believable offense and defense moves and manual passing, which is the livelihood of all soccer video games. You’ve also probably noticed that South America is finally getting the attention they deserve; Konami secured the license for the Copa Santander Libertadores, which is pretty cool as well.
