Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 (PES 2017) may have won accolades for its near real likenesses of players in addition to its fantastic gameplay, but former Argentina, Barcelona, and Napoli midfielder Diego Maradona has taken offence to this. What PES 2017 lacks in teams and licenses, they make up for in realistic soccer action and the license for prestigious tournaments like the Champions League.
It seems as though someone at Konami forgot to send the Maradona camp the memo.
On his Facebook page he said his lawyer would be "initiating appropriate legal action" against the Japanese gaming company. "I hope this is not another scam ..." The game was released in mid-September 2016 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
"Said attorney Matias Morla tweeted the following: "#PES2017 used in an illegal way figure and name of #Maradona are going to crackdown on #Konami with everything!"
PES 2017 is the 16th installment in the franchise by Konami known for its enhanced game-play and visual detail that sometimes escapes the attention of its chief rival, EA Sports' FIFA franchise.
