As we know it, the Lionel Messi era of donning the face of PES series has been virtually over after Konami has decided to pick Cristiano Ronaldo as their mascot.
No official image or logo of PES 2012 has been released yet along with Ronaldo, but we got ourselves a picture of European PES Team Leader, Jon Murphy and the Portuguese published by the former in his Twitter account.
“Today went really well. Had a great interview with @Cristiano, so watch out for it. #PES2012″ he said in his tweet with the link of the image.
Asked by a Twitter user why they choose Ronaldo instead of Messi as the cover of PES 2012, he simply said, “Just time for change. New pes new face”
PES 2012 scheduled for October 14 release and goes live on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Konami described the title as the “most ambitious and advanced football game ever”.
