PESKings Interview PES 2013 Producers

- Leave a Comment

Last week Oliver (PESKings.net) had the chance to play PES 2013 early at the Konami offices and also hold a interview with the PES producers. Below is the translated version of his interview. Hopefully everything is understandable and not lost in translation.

As we mentioned in our play test impressions a few days ago, we had the opportunity to interview the two producers of PES 2013, Ippei Nio (to the left in the image) and Manorito Hosoda (Central).

In the rest of the header image, you can find Borja, of Konami Spain, and me doing the interview (the right). We did the questions in Spanish, then translated it into English. Borja and Ippei Nio who understands English, translated it into Japanese to Manorito Hosoda, and then of course the reverse for their answers.

Here's the interview:

Q) What aspects of the game will you be focusing on from now on with 60% of code developed, until the end of development?

A) Primarily for the remainder of development, We will focus on improving the AI a lot, I mean with the ideas we have to make it really effective, weighing in every sense of the game, and especially also issue of a real balance and very effective between defense and attack, I mean, that it wasn't a very offensive game or a very defensive game.

Q) Will there be any improvement to the online games to fight against cheaters? For example, if a user is currently self-made 3 goals, both players are harmed.

A) We will have a new system that will do is that you will have noticed that every player has a given ratio of matches and fair play, and say that on these parameters, as it will detect the player cheat and on these parameters, say, to detect someone who claim to another, with these ratios for each player will be able to make decisions much tougher on those users.

Q) About commentators in matches, for spanish PES game, will we have still the same? Any improvement in this regard?

A) Yes, still the same, Carlos Martinez and Julio Maldonado (Maldini). Have increased greatly the programming of the comments, while maintaining the same talents, both in Spain say the two commentators, and most importantly, it will eliminate many phrases that make little sense in many situations, bone , thinks that maybe they were playing back, many situations will be eliminated from being so obvious, I mean so ambiguous, and the most important development is that many comments have been added specifically for players with the Player ID, these players very important that we have identified that list will have very specific data about its behavior in the field and on their gaming skills.

Q) Limit will be increased to belong to 3 Communities and the limit of 100 users per community?

A) There is not going to increase the number of users but we do that is to integrate a new system of Online Community, through widgets, for example, you see your co-activities Community, apart from all this for geographical area, even at the Community but also that you are able to join specific communities of cities in the world and people playing near you.

Q) There are rumors that the league will be licensed in Argentina and Brazil, is it true? Are you working on it? (Here they laughed a little between them, it seemed like it's a question that people do a lot and caused them to laugh a little, or maybe want to hide something)

A) Right now we can not say anything about it, but in July you'll have more details on this specific question.

Q) About the Master League Offline, people would like to see the possibility to switch teams between seasons, receive offers from other teams. Have you introduced such a feature?

A) It is a good recommendation and I really think it's very interesting, they will speak with the development team if they can implement this year, but they believe it is something that surely, sure, will be implemented next year, but at least they will try to return to Japan, to see with the team if they can implement it.

(Here we commented that there were few questions already, and we laugh a lot because Manorito Hosoda, made a gesture as if nothing happened, that more questions, more questions, making hand gestures that he wanted more) - A very kind gesture their part.

Q) About the Edit mode, can you clarify / tell us whether there will be any significant improvement?

A) There you won't see big improvements over last year, but we are working on many improvements and very interesting for next year, in this specific aspect.

Q) In the case that next year there isn't new generation of consoles, people are talking about a new graphics engine, the Fox Engine, is anyway to include the current generation of consoles?

A) They will have new engine next year, okay, even if no new generation consoles, because we think that, while not a perfect year to have it, definitely yes that is a good time to implement the new graphics engine and these fantastic changes we are going to do.

Q) Can you comment something about whether there will be something new, for example, a new mode, which has not been announced yet. May not know that, but at least tell me if waiting for something or not.

A) New developments are already made, okay, these three pillars will be there represented in the game, we do not say is that although there won't be new as important as those three, yes it is true that they to have more details such as the new Community mode, which will know more details soon, and the new ranking system and rivals of the online mode, which has been improved and has many more new sections.

Final Comment: Here I told Borja that would make a constructive criticism about PES 2012 that currently has a couple of bugs / problems / bugs important, and that although the community is increasingly happy because they listen to feedback from users, but once the game released in the current version, have spent many months and have not been corrected (I meant to long shot L1 + shot and the subject of freeckicks in online games if you leave the machine to shoot are almost always goal).

A) Here the first thing I did Manorito Hosoda just hear the translation in Japanese, was out of the corner where we were doing the interview was to point to a book, which was aimed more feedback from people, this failure to test it on PES 2013 when they come to Japan, and check that it does not recur.

Give million thanks to Konami Spain for allowing us to do this interview, and especially Borja had to do liaison / translator in the interview, making it was very easy for us to do it. Thank you!

PES 2013 Demo Confirmed For July.

- Leave a Comment
We posted news regarding rumors that the first PES 2013 demo would be released in July last week but now we have had some more confirmation that, that information is correct.

Marvin Ronsdorf (Prorevo) is in the UK play testing PES 2013 at the Konami offices in London today tweeted the following -

"The PES-Team confirmed me that there are two #PES2013 demos. First in the second half of July and the second around the release!"

Releasing a demo so early shows confidence in the game at its current stage and also enables our feedback on the first demo to impact (hopefully) the final release of PES 2013.

Stay tuned for more news over the following days from the PES 2013 community day in London.

PES 2013 Release Date On 7th Sep?

The online game store site Zavvi.com has set the 7th September as the date for the release of PES 2013 and you can also pre-order the game now. Zavvi.com is associated with Pesfan.com and that's why we have a good reason to believe that the release date is realistic. There is no confirmation from Konami about the release date yet, and we properly won't hear anything until Gamescome.

PES 2012 Vs PES 2013 Graphic Comparison

1 comment
With the focus mainly on the gameplay this year, has konami still manage to put some small improvements into the visual part of the game. You can see the small improvements in the comparisons below. It's not much but you can see the difference between PES 2012 and PES 2013. It's especially the colors and light effects that Konami has been improving on. It's not much but with the gameplay improvements we have seen so far, is it more then acceptable that Konami has chosen other priority's then the visual this year. Watch the comparisons below.

PES 2013 Goalkeepers Improvements.

After Konami had showed us the latest trailer of PES 2013, has many people expressed concerns about the goalkeepers not being improved after seeing them in the trailer. Konami has promised big improvements on goalkeepers and a quick look on the latest press release, will give you the impression of that Konami are still keen to improve the goalkeepers even tho the trailer showed something else. According a press release from Konami at the E3 conference is there many improvements on the goalkeepers:

Goal keeping has been totally invigorated via new animations and play styles.

The PES team worked with real life goal keepers to improve motions ad GK logic to improve animations and quality of GK responses

Goalkeepers represent a massive advance, with all new animations and AI that helps them anticipate dangers and act accordingly.

The new intelligence and AI falls under the Player ID banner, which ensures the worlds greatest players behave like their real-world counterparts.

New varieties of saves and reactions have been added to ensure the game’s ‘keepers are in line with the efforts of real shot stoppers. 

This level of realism also extends to the game’s top-rated goal keepers, with their moves to close attacks down, fling themselves to tip a shot past the post, and in-goal acrobatics benefiting from all new animations and AI.

Remember that the press also found the goalkeepers improved a lot, and still with some months left before the game get's released, will Konami have plenty of time to improve the goalkeepers.

Update: From Asim Tanvir twitter profile: So, yes, played #PES2013. Thoughts to come later from both me and @GariClark. Positive though, very positive. Keepers noticeably better. Yup, new animations. Keepers have own styles too.
