PES 15 to have the largest club roster of any sports game

2 min read


That’s because, according to Konami,  it’s going to feature 21 Brazilian teams, and I can’t count that high. How many zeroes is that? Terrible jokes aside, Konami has announced it’s made a licencing deal with a number of Brazil’s clubs,  and will feature a number of licenced clubs, as well as a fair number of licenced players too.

Brazilian club teams will include:

Campeonato Brasileiro Série A Teams

  • Atlético Mineiro
  • Atlético Paranaense
  • Bahia
  • Botafogo
  • Chapecoense
  • Corinthians
  • Coritiba
  • Criciúma
  • Cruzeiro
  • Figueirense
  • Flamengo
  • Fluminense
  • Goiás
  • Grêmio
  • Internacional
  • Palmeiras
  • Santos
  • São Paulo
  • Sport
  • Vitória

Campeonato Brasileiro Série B Team: CR Vasco Da Gama

The following teams will even have the proper player names.

  • Corinthians
  • Cruzeiro
  • Palmeiras
  • Figeurense
  • Players for the remaining clubs are in the process of being confirmed, and will included in digital datapack updates post launch.

Of course, once the game is out there will be datapacks available to rename everyone in the game, saving you the hard work of going and physically giving every player in every team the right names and stats.

PES 2015 is out November 13 on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The PC and new gen versions are set for full price, with a bit of a discount to those stuck on the older consoles. It’s sporting a twin set of developers; the usual one in Japan, aided this time by a support studio based in the UK. For the first timer in a while, it could end up being better received by both critics and consumers this year, as this year’s FIFA’s been found wanting a little.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
