THE ‘POWER OF FOOTBALL’ STRENGTHENS AS KONAMI AND  AC MILAN ELEVATE GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP 24th August 2018

THE ‘POWER OF FOOTBALL’ STRENGTHENS AS KONAMI AND AC MILAN ELEVATE GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has officially announced their agreement with AC Milan to continue as the club’s Official Football Video Game Partner as well as widening their existing agreement. The deal extends an already successful partnership between KONAMI and the Italian club into its second year. Legend players alongside this partnership announcement will be announced shortly.

AC Milan is a club that has enjoyed a rich history since its birth in 1899, boasting the greatest number of successes for an Italian side on the international stage. AC Milan has won Europe’s biggest club football competition seven times, the European Cup Winners’ Cup twice and is also the five times winner of the match between the reigning champions of the two main European club competitions.

The agreement will see the club’s players be perfectly recreated within PES 2019 thanks to KONAMI’s proprietary 3D scanning system. KONAMI was also given extensive access to the San Siro in order to recreate a highly detailed emulation of the stadium’s features and dimensions within the game.

The 3D scanning system will not only capture the visual likenesses of players such as Lucas Biglia, Alessio Romagnoli and Gianluigi Donnarumma, but will also imitate their movements, playing styles and tactical capabilities.

In fact, AC Milan is currently available in the PES 2019 demo, which can be downloaded for PlayStation®4, Xbox One™, and PC STEAM.

KONAMI will
enjoy continued prominence across the San Siro’s match-day LED sponsor boards,
and PES 2019 will also be promoted via the ground’s giant LED screen.
Additional promotions will take place in official partner zones in the ground,
the Milanello Sport Centre training facility and the Vismara Sport Centre.

“We are
delighted to be continuing with KONAMI as a worldwide partner of AC Milan and
one that beautifully captures the essence of our club within PES 2019,” said
Lorenzo Giorgetti, Chief Commercial Officer of AC Milan. “We are excited to be
offering our fans the opportunity to experience both the players and the San
Siro so accurately created within the game once again this year.”

“AC Milan
is one of the biggest and most successful clubs in world football, so we are
thrilled to be continuing our partnership with them,” commented Jonas Lygaard,
Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital
Entertainment B.V. “KONAMI is dedicated to working with the biggest clubs in
the world, and with a history such as AC Milan’s and the talent they have on
display within their current squad, we are doing just that.”

PES 2019 will be
available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™, and PC STEAM, on August 30th, with the
demo currently available for download across all consoles.

DEAD OR ALIVE 6 ADDS TWO INTENSE FIGHTERS TO LINE-UP!

KOEI TECMO Europe announced today the addition of two more fighters to the DEAD OR ALIVE 6 roster, including returning antagonist Rig, as well as Diego — a fascinating and forceful new character to the DOA Universe. Both combatants will be showcased in the first consumer playable build of DEAD OR ALIVE 6 at the Evolution Championship Series (Evo) 2018 inside the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, on the 3rd-4th August 2018.

Known as “The Uncrowned Street Hero,”Diego makes his DOA debut boasting the raw and brutal skills of a street fighter, utilising everything from headbutts to tackles in taking down opponents. This gritty fighter grew up in the back alleys of New York, earning money to support his ailing mother by competing in many street matches. Long rumoured to be the strongest fighter in his neighbourhood, he is seen by many locals as a hero as he utilises his experience brawling in confined quarters to impact fights with a set of strong-style moves.

Joining Diego is returning taekwondo master Rig, who boasts the “Kicks of Truth and Deceit.” Rig, who originally debuted in DEAD OR ALIVE 5, is a former oil platform worker whose kick-heavy style has evolved to incorporate more acrobatic maneuvers. To kick-off their confrontation in DOA6, the formidable brawler Rig challenges Diego in a New York alley, and the two decide the time for conversation is over; it’s time to fight!

Diego and Rig join the six playable characters previously announced (Helena Douglas, Hayate, Ryu Hayabusa, Zack, Kasumi, and Jann Lee), as fans in attendance at Evo will be able to test out the latest build of the game while winning exclusive swag, including DOA6 shirts, tote bags, and lanyards.

To celebrate the reveal of this fascinating new character, KOEI TECMO Europe released a reveal trailer showcasing the iconic meeting between Diego and Rig, alongside a selection of new assets showing the Training Mode for the first time!
