PES 2011 screenshots get Messi

The world's greatest looks a lot like himself

Konami's released a few new screenshots for PES 2011 to demonstrate how slick player likeness will be in its bill to climb to the top of football mountain once more.

The shots feature Lionel Messi showing off his silky skills apparently in the dark, and there's also a shot of a semi-complete stadium thrown in there for good measure.

We brought you a PES 2011 gameplay video earlier this week and we have to say it looks like it's finally made the next gen step we've been waiting for.

Earlier today FIFA 11's Japanese exec producer has admitted that EA often worries about a PES comeback. Maybe there's reason to now.
