Pro Evolution Soccer 3 (Winning Eleven 7 in Japan and World Soccer Winning Eleven 7 in the US) was released in 2003, and featured an overhaul in the graphics engine, with more lifelike players and much improved likenesses. The gameplay featured more fast-paced action than that of Pro Evolution Soccer 2, a much better physics engine, and additions such as the advantage rule, improved passing and long-ball functions. More licenses and more club teams were added, and the Master League was split into regional divisions, with competitions equivalent to the Champions League and the UEFA Cup.
