Ai Sugiyama joins Tennis 2K2
It was announced today that Japanese tennis star Ai Sugiyama will join the roster of playable characters in Sega's Power Smash 2, the company's newest tennis game. Basically an enhanced port of the previously released Tennis 2K2 on the Sega Dreamcast, Power Smash 2 will feature 16 star tennis players to choose from, including Serena Williams and Patrick Rafter. Ai Sugiyama, however, will be the first Japanese tennis player to be featured in the game. Power Smash 2 is currently slated for a summer release in Japan followed by a late fall launch in the North American market.
