Developer Konami has promised that the 3D handheld version of the game will be just as fully-featured as its home console brethren, while introducing some unique additions of its own.
Most prominent is a brand new Player camera option that tracks the action at close range, immersing gamers in the match experience and allowing them to use 3D depth perception to judge their shots and passes.
It will also take advantage of the new StreetPass connectivity feature to swap Master League data with other gamers in the vicinity, with those with the better stats unlocking new items and bonuses.
In addition, PES 2011 for 3DS will include all of the in-depth settings and gameplay that fans have come to expect, including more than 200 teams, a full UEFA Champions League mode and wireless multiplayer matches.
PES 2011 made its debut on existing consoles in October 2010 and was one of the most dramatic leaps forward for the series to date, featuring refined graphics, controls and gameplay options.
