Konami plans to update Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 with new licensed teams and current transfer data in early November. The publisher's announcement suggests it applies to 360, PS3 and PC versions.

Spanish sides Athletico Madrid, Sevilla, Racing Santander and Valladolid join the list of licensed teams, which already includes Liverpool and Manchester United from the English Premier League.

The patch will also update kits and squads for many teams in the game, hopefully putting Berbatov on Man United's books and reinstalling Shevchenko away from Chelsea, to pick on the most noticeable ones.

Konami also plans to add 12 more teams to the licensed UEFA Champions League mode (including Marseille, Juventus and Basel) and add proper Champions League kits and kit markings to give the whole thing a greater air of authenticity.

Check out our Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 review to see what we made of the game, which is out today on PS3, 360 and PC. The PS2 version is out on 31st October and PSP on 7th November (despite what this page said earlier!). A Wii version is due out next spring.
