Konami has confirmed a Wii version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 is currently in development.

Key additions to this instalment will include an enhanced shooting system, said to offer "more control while remaining as easy to use as last year's version". The defensive elements of the game have also been reworked, so you should have more control over defenders and opportunities to fend off attacks.

There's a new AI system, so apparently you can expect "more sophisticated and intuitive movement" from players. There will be different control methods to "cater for a wide range of play styles".

Konami has also announced PES 2009 is coming to mobiles, complete with a bluetooth multiplayer mode. Player AI has been improved, there are new animations, new stadiums, unlockable bonuses and a refined control system.

The mobile game will be released alongside the previously announced PC, PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions this autumn. PES 2009 for Wii will follow in spring next year.

Kristan certainly enjoyed the last PES game on Wii - read his review to find out why.
