PES 2012 Lets You Control Two Players At the Same Time

Well, this sound kinda neat and also very confusing, though it will probably make perfect sense once I actually get my hands on the game. Speaking of which, it seems odd that Konami would announce a wacky feature like this in a press release rather than at a convention where people like me who have to describe it can actually try it out. Or maybe they can release videos that show what’s up, which they did. You can find those at the bottom of this post.

Anyway, the point here is that Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 will grant the player the ability to control two players at the same time. Since I don’t really understand this at all, I’ll let the press release describe it.

The Teammate Control system works in two ways, with users pressing the right analogue stick in the direction of the player they wish to control. The Assisted mode allows the user to activate a second player by depressing the R3 button, and allows users to get to grips with the greater level of control via effective running movements. Greater control is offered by the Manual mode, wherein the user has complete freedom of movement of the second player, and can make shuttle runs, find space, and shake off markers before calling for the pass from the player still with the ball. The player will then revert to computer control when the R3 button is released, and can also be used to override any AI runs the player wants to cancel. Both can be affected at any time, so players can make moves without waiting for a pass to be completed.

Got it? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Here are the helpful videos I mentioned earlier.
