The Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME is the best-selling trading card game in the world with over 25 billion cards sold. It is a game of strategy, where players create individual Decks of cards collected from Structure Decks and Booster Packs. Two players engage in a duel while using cards that represent powerful Monsters, magical Spells and surprising Traps. Duellists with well-constructed Decks, dominating monsters, solid strategy and good fortune are the victors in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. is the exclusive licensee and rights holder to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in Europe and Oceania.
PES 2017 is founded around the ‘Control Reality’ ethos, elevating the award-winning gameplay to a new level via incredible new control elements and a new standard of visual realism, without sacrificing what made PES successful in the first place – playing a match with your friends. The industry-leading Fox Engine once again powers the series to reach new heights, with KONAMI looking to its focus on first touch, the making and receiving of passes, and AI that adapts to counter the way users play to elevate the game’s acclaimed realism. Visitors can get hands-on with the latest football simulation and experience the control reality concept for themselves, a world-premiere for the public!
