-The game that brings you skills, skills and more skills. It's not about if you win or lose, but the beauty of the game!-

Following the success of the first season of World Tour SoccerTM on the PSP (PlayStationPortable), Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is delighted to announce the launch of World Tour Soccer 2TM (WTS2) in June 2006 - a whole new style of football for a new style of console.

If the World Cup is the place to see the best skills on the planet then WTS2 is the place to play football the way we can only dream of - where looking good and playing with style are more important than winning! Designed exclusively for PSPTM, WTS2 is a showboat of quick points-based game modes, each offering something unique and challenging, and all offering fast paced accessible gaming - perfect for showing off your natural talent in all the different modes.

This 'beautiful' game offers two core progression structures: World Tour and Medal Mode, with the aim being to win challenges on each of major footballing continents against increasingly stronger teams, in doing so unlocking new teams, game modes and and All Star teams.

WTS2 features 11 game modes which all encourage you to play football in different styles; the classic challenge which featured in the first version gives you points for perfect passes and scorching shoots, the all rounder where bringing in teammates to the game is key; time attack where you gain points against the clock; checkpoint where you are tested on your distribution skills; and finally shot clock where your eye for goal is tested in a race against time.

Other key features include a brand new visual style, further game modes available for download after purchase, Wi-Fi (four players) and Infrastructure (two player) support, eight new stadiums and 71 International teams.

So, if you eat, sleep and breathe football, then WTS2 is just what you're looking for to relieve your soccer stress, and to show the world that you truly have the hands of God when it comes to PSP gaming...
