Konami is still fighting the good fight when it comes to football video game licences – it’s just nabbed the exclusive on Italian club Napoli.
The marketing partnership starts from next season, but Napoli becomes a genuine PES exclusive from the 2022/23 season, Konami said.
It’s a similar deal to the one Konami signed for Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus, which forced rival EA Sports to come up with a fake name for the Old Lady in FIFA 21. So, expect EA Sports to have to come up with a fake name for Napoli in 2022’s FIFA 23.
