Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), known in Japan and formerly North America as Winning Eleven, and rebranded recently as efootball, is a series of association football simulation video games developed and released annually since 2001. It is being developed and published by Konami. It consists of eighteen main instalments and several spin-off style titles and it has seen releases on many different platforms. It is itself a sister series of Konami's earlier International Superstar Soccer and has been released under different names before the name Pro Evolution Soccer was established worldwide. The series has consistently achieved critical and commercial success.

The Pro Evolution Soccer series has also been used in esports. PES League (or PES World Finals as it was formerly known) is the official esports world championship held annually since 2010. PES League features both an individual's tournament (1v1) and since the 2018 edition a team's tournament (3v3).

In association football circles, Pro Evolution Soccer has a longstanding rivalry with EA Sports' FIFA series.[1] As with the FIFA series, PES allows players to perform their own unique goal celebrations. Listed as one of the best-selling video game franchises, the series has sold over 107.4 million copies, in addition to over 200 million mobile game downloads.

Konami also created a similar mobile game called PESCM or Pro Evolution Soccer Club Manager.
