Konami have released new screenshots and a trailer for Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 (PES 2011). the trailer is nearly 6 minutes long and features in-game footage throughout. its main focus is showing 360-degree control, the main points in the trailer are dribbling, feints, defence, and team movement. the first part of the trailer is a gameplay trailer, whilst the second part breaks down the first trailer and shows each step of the move, for example in the menu you set you team to run down the flanks so when your in the game and pass the ball to the wing you have a team mate there who will run with the ball.
