Cristiano Ronaldo will now be gracing the covers of all Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 packaging and marketing materials. Before Ronaldo, it was Lionel Messi who was the face of PES for years. Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid and is the world's most expensive player.
Jon Murphy, European PES Team Leader, recently said that Cristiano Ronaldo is the perfect choice as he epitomizes everything that PES 2012 plans to achieve. Murphy also praised Ronaldo's passion for the game. He said that the KONAMI is thankful to Ronaldo for becoming a part of PES 2012.
PES 2012 is all set to hit the stores for PC, PS 3 and Xbox 360 on September 27. The PS 2, PSP and Wii Versions will release later, somewhere around November 8.
