Along with the details of Serie B, Konami has also acquired licenses to feature 19 clubs from the division in the new update of the game.
Konami has been working diligently for a detailed representation of Italian football in the latest version of PES. It will also recreate the details of the Italian national team in the game.
Along with getting Serie B in the game, Konami will also have a special tournament mode in the game that will include Euros 2020.
