Though it was expected to hit consoles today, September 17th, Konami has announced that the demo for the next iteration in its evergreen soccer series, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, has been delayed by one week.
For Japanese fans, though, the preemptive trial is set to launch as normal across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox One tomorrow.
The postponement means that those in the States will have to wait until September 23rd to test out Konami’s latest soccer simulator; by that stage, the demo will also be available on Xbox 360. As for Europe, the company promised that a date “will be announced shortly.”
With less than two months until its eventual release, Konami has begun releasing a string of gameplay trailers that showcase so the new improvements set to appear in this year’s incarnation. Chief of which is the improved shooting system, which has been reworked from the ground up to ensure a more realistic, tactical feel.
Elsewhere, refined ball control will ensure that one-on-one encounters are all the more exciting, with Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 allowing players to show off their skills thanks to the improved dribbling.
For those who wish to buy the game ahead of time, Konami is offering a pre-order incentive that can be redeemed through the in-game myClub mode — formerly known as the Master League. Here players will gain access to 10,000 bonus points and a random player from the UEFA team of the year — fingers crossed for either Ronaldo or Messi, right?
Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 will dribble onto PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 13th.
