Fresh off of FC Barcelona winning the treble, Brazil captain and world superstar Neymar Jr. will grace the cover of Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer 2016.

The company has not announced any platforms or a release date, but more details are promised on Friday, June 12.

Until then, feast your eyes on this teaser trailer featuring Neymar and a host of other famous footballers in action.

For more on the series, take a look at my review of last year's game on PS4.


Our Take

Neymar is a good choice, not only because he's one of the world's most famous players, but because as a franchise PES is huge in Brazil and South America in general. It's had the license for a number of Brazilian clubs, South America's Copa Libertadores club tournament, and the Champions League – which Neymar's Barca just won. Personally, I'm not a Neymar fan. The man has unbelievable talent, but he's a diver.
