Konami has continued to intensify its rivalry with EA Sports after eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 will now feature a fully licensed Serie A.
The upcoming PES 2020 has partnered up with the Italian league and will now include the official Serie A logo, trophy and associated badges.
While the agreement is not exclusive, it strengthens PES 2020's position against FIFA 20 and shows the support that the Japanese publisher has put towards the title.
The Serie A champions' crest, kits and home stadium will all feature in PES 2020, with EA Sports revealing that Juventus will be rebranded as 'Piemonte Calcio' in FIFA 20.
And Konami has also agreed to exclusive partnerships with Boca Juniors and River Plate for PES 2020.
PES 2020's cover will feature Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry, Juventus star Miralem Pjanic and Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay alongside Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
McTominay recently shared his reaction to featuring on the cover with Messi, who he described as the "best ever."
"I don't even know. I've not even thought about it yet," he said.
"Whenever I see myself in Asda on the side, I'll be a bit like [exhales].
"I know! But it's one of them ones, isn't it?
"It's a good experience and it's amazing to be on the cover of such an iconic game as well.
"So it's one of them things that you have to relish as well and embrace it."
PES 2020 will launch on 10th September for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
