Why these changes?
Obviously, Konami explained this change. “Our ambition was to re-create an ideal football environment, from the grass to the movements of the players, to the stadium audience,” the statement read. For this, we decided to create a new soccer engine, with the aim of rethinking the game’s animation system and controls. The end result was more impressive than we could have imagined. We have gone beyond the limits of PES to reach a new world of virtual football. To celebrate this new era, we have decided to withdraw our popular PES brand name and rename it “eFootball”
