We’re already getting Fifa 18 on Nintendo Switch this year but fans of PES may be disappointed as Konami have revealed that we won’t be seeing PES 2018. It’s not all doom and gloom though; Konami recently had an interview with Eurogamer and they say they are listening to fans. According to Konami, if fan reactions are aplenty then they’ll consider future releases. Here’s what PES global product and brand manager Adam Bhatti and assistant producer Kei Masuda said on the matter:
Bhatti: One thing that I will say about the Switch is, we’re getting asked that quite a lot. The fact is, we’ve announced all the platforms that PES 2018 is coming to. But as I’ve been saying to a lot of people, we have a great relationship with Nintendo – we’ve obviously brought out Bomberman which has done fantastic for the Switch. So as a company it’s a platform that we’re looking at, for sure. So for PES it’s just – we never want to say no, we never want to close the door. Let’s see how it goes. Personally speaking, I love the machine. We think it’s definitely performed amazingly well. And we really hope that it continues to do very well.
Masuda-san: We always like to hear what the fans think as well, depending on the amount of reactions we get then we definitely would like to look into it.
