Konami has announced that Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 will launch on 23rd October for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
A PSP version of the football game will follow on 6th November, before a Wii version shows up on 20th November.
We expect a demo will appear before then, too.
With PES 2010, "there's no question Konami has turned sharply away from the cul-de-sac into which the series appeared to be disappearing last year", we concluded after our week-long playtest of the game, impressions of which were posted on Monday.
Whether that's enough to bridge the FIFA gap, however, remains to be seen.
