Last month, a Pro Evolution Soccer European community manager claimed that PES 2014 won’t be releasing on Nintendo 3DS, due to poor sales of the hand-held console’s version of PES 2013. Well, it turns out a Nintendo 3DS version of the upcoming soccer simulation game is in the works. Also known as Winning Eleven 2014, PES 2014 is scheduled to arrive on Nintendo 3DS in Japan – alongside the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable versions of the game – in the fall. Whether the Nintendo 3DS version will be released outside the country has yet to be confirmed by the game’s publisher, Konami.
EA’s FIFA 14 isn’t the only soccer simulation game that will not see release on Nintendo platforms this year. Konami has confirmed that Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 (PES 2014) will not be released on the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS. PES European community manager Adam Bhatti claims that the reason the game will skip the hand-held console is because no one bought the Nintendo 3DS version of PES 2013, which was released in 2012. PES 2014 is scheduled to arrive in September for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Xbox 360 and PC.
