It’s game on for Neymar…
The 27-year-old Brazilian soccer sensation, a forward for Futbol Club Barcelona and the Brazil national team, has been selected to appear on the front cover of PES 2017, the 16th installment in the Pro Evolution Soccer series.
Neymar is joined by fellow Barcelona players Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez on the cover of the game.
Komani, the publishers of the annual football video game Pro Evolution Soccer, has also unveiled the La Liga champions as an official partner ahead of the title’s release later this year.
Messi has appeared on the front cover of FIFA games for the past four years, but the official partnership looks to have coerced an allegiance switch, while Neymar starred solo on PES 2016 cover.PES 2017 is slated for release on September 15, 2016.
