TOKYO--On just a single screen on its large Tokyo Game Show booth, Konami is showing a short video of the previously unannounced Winning Eleven Tactics: European Club Soccer for the PS2. At first glance, the video appeared to be of a regular Winning Eleven title, but it soon became clear that the focus of the game was on the strategy and formation screens rather than on the action on the pitch. From what we could gather, you'll be able to watch your team in action using the regular Winning Eleven engine, but you will also have the option to switch to a more management-oriented, gamelike, top-down view of the pitch--on which all of the players are represented as circles.
We'll bring you more information on Winning Eleven Tactics: European Club Soccer--which will probably see a release outside of Japan at some point--as soon as it becomes available. For more updates, be sure to check GameSpot's coverage of the Tokyo Game Show 2004.
