Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced an agreement with the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (ANFP) to bring 18 Primera División teams to Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. KONAMI has also enlisted the talents of national football announcers Fernando Solabarrieta and Patricio ("Pato") Yáñez, to call the action in each game. Some of the premier teams that will be included are Colo-Colo, Universidad de Chile, Universidad Católica, Cobreloa, and Unión Española.
"For the next chapter in the Pro Evolution series, we have been working hard to secure licensing that will excite our fans." said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
