This handheld version has been created by Konami's Paris development studio and 'has been designed to set new standards for the football genre on these devices', according to the publisher. The game will feature 3D visuals and all-new control interfaces.
The Publisher is also claiming at that the AI is comparable to that enjoyed on the console. It says that 'all the slick passing, first-time shots, and mazy runs that the existing versions enjoy are faithfully recreated'. Axel de Rougé, producer of PES 2010 for iPhone/iPod Touch commented:
"To bring a game as complex and as playable as PES 2010 to iPhone and iPod touch has been a daunting challenge, but one that has paid off."Those with an iPhone or iPod Touch can look forward to it in June then.
"We have been working to ensure that all the slick moves and control - not to mention strong AI and aesthetic touches - that are associated with the series, have been recreated. We are confident we have produced the best football game available for the Apple systems, and look forward to its reception in June."
