Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, known as Winning Eleven Play Maker 2009 in Japan, is the second Wii entry of the association football video game Pro Evolution Soccer series by Konami. The Wii version was released on March 17, 2009 in North America.[2]



Building on the control system of its predecessor, PES 2009 expands on the basic concept of players controlling both the player with the ball and those around them.

PES 2009 for Nintendo Wii features a number of key additions, with an enhanced shooting system offering more control. The development team has also reworked the defensive elements of the game, with more control over defenders and more ways to close down attacking threats. A new AI system has also been implemented and results in more sophisticated and intuitive movement from team mates according to the player's commands.

Konami revealed that the “point and click” system which allowed the player to control both the footballer with the ball and his team mates will be back but a new control system, dubbed “traditional,” will also be available, to be used with either the Wiimote or the Classic Controller. Several improvements in AI will make matches more challenging and to the new cooperative play system designed to allow one player to use the Nunchuk and the Wiimote to control the game at a team level while another player uses the Classic Controller to coordinate individual players. It is also set to receive fresh game modes, like the Master League, an enhanced Champions Road competition, an enhanced Edit Mode, enhanced online gameplay possibilities and a game mode allowing players to train their Mii.[3] Unfortunately, unlike the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, PES 09 Wii will not feature the Become a Legend mode.
