The eternal struggle between fans of EA's fast-paced, good-looking FIFA series and Konami's deeper, more realistic Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) video game titles rages across console and mobile versions. If you're a fan of the latter, you'll be happy to hear that Konami will bring Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 to iOS and Android later this month after a soft launch in Australia last December.

The new mobile, free-to-play football title will feature officially licensed teams, players and stadiums, including club and national teams as well as a UEFA Champions League license. Konami says that the game, while optimized for mobile, was made with the console title's graphics engine, which could make for a slick, highly-realistic soccer experience on the go.

Soccer is a global phenomenon, and PES 2017 honors that tradition with an interface localized in 10 different languages and play-by-play commentary in nine: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese. Plus? For a limited time, pre-registering will net you some "deluxe" players to add to your team roster as you take on all comers.

This isn't Konami's first foray into the mobile soccer arena, of course. There have been many PES games on mobile since 2010, as well as a more strategic football manager app for the league. FIFA has been on mobile for a similar amount of time.
