Konami has announced that World Soccer Collection S, which is already available in Japan, will be released in North America and Europe as PES Manager.
In PES Manager gamers will collect stat-based player badges which can be added to their teams, and play against other people or AI. Gamers will be able to improve the stats of their players in training sessions. The title will feature over 1,500 licensed player badges, several match types including Challenge Matches, Cup Contests, and Special Matches, and 3D matches.
In addition, Konami has revealed that gamers will be able to earn a star player badge by participating in the game's pre-launch Shootout Challenge. PES Manager will be available for free, although a release date has yet to be revealed.
