Konami releases information for the Latin America covers and downloadable content on Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 at the GamesCom event this week

A few days ago, Konami had already released news about its addition of the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional or (ANFP), which added 18 of Chile's finest teams to the PES lineup. Thanks to the GamesCom event recently, they've now released the covers for its Latin America lineup as well. Here is the press release info on what they've launched so far.

Brazil: The Brazil PES 2014 cover reaffirms the licensing of 21 teams throughout the country and features some of the country's most renowned stars and teams including Santos, Palmeiras and Corinthians. Complete with kits and stadiums and local announcers, Brazilians will feel at home with PES 2014.

Argentina: New to the franchise this year, is the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) Primera División brings all 20 top level teams (and some of the corresponding home stadiums) into Pro Evolution Soccer 2014.  KONAMI has also enlisted the talents of national football announcers and FOX Sports commentators, Mariano Closs and Fernando Neimbro, to call the action in each game. Some of the premier teams that will be included are River Plate, Boca Juniors, Newell's Old Boys and Racing.

Chile: During the Festigame convention in Santiago, Chile, PES announced an agreement with the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (ANFP) to bring all 18 Primera División teams to Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. The teams include Colo Colo, Universidad de Chile, Universidad Católica, Cobreloa, Unión Española, and more.  In addition, PES 2014 will also feature local announcers Fernando Solabarrieta and Patricio ("Pato") Yáñez, to call the action.

Latin America: PES 2014 also features a region wide cover, which pays homage to the Copa Bridgestone Libertadores teams, which are exclusively licensed in PES 2014.

Aside from the Latin America additions, Konami has also released news on the DLC packs being introduced. If you pre-order PES 2014, you will receive special codes to unlock the new content. These involve classic Latin American and European kits to the main game, which include famed sides such as AC Milan (1989-90), Manchester United (1998-99), Santos (1968), Colo Colo (1992) and Boca Juniors (1997).

A digital pre-order will land you current third kits for teams such as Manchester United, Inter Milan and Juventus.  Roster updates, new kit elements and additional DLC will also be regularly available during Pro Evolution Soccer 2014's lifespan. Pro Evolution Soccer will release in UK on September 20th, a few days before the North American release on the 24th, which is the same day FIFA launches. Being backed by the Fox Engine this time around, it'll be interesting to see the outcome this year when the two titans go head to head for the gold medal with soccer fans.

PES 2014 will launch for Xbox360, PS3, PC, and PSP. No next generation platforms are planned, nor a Wii-U, 3DS, or PSVita versions are on the table due to a lack of demand. Yes, there still is a demand for the ever aging PSP, which is still holding its own in Japan with a firm grip.  Check out the latest trailer for PES 2014 below, which highlights some of the ball handling and blocking systems being introduced this year.

By the way, nice comparison between PES 2013 and PES 2014 someone created below. You can certainly see a noticable difference using the Fox Engine.
