Ubisoft Reveals Racquet Sports For PS3 And Move
Well, it's only natural that one of the first titles for PlayStation Move will involve striking a ball with a racquet.
Today, Ubisoft has announced that Racquet Sports, a game that includes tennis, ping-pong, badminton, squash and even beach tennis, will be released for the PlayStation 3 this fall. Compatible with the upcoming Move motion-sensing system, the package will offer "unprecedented realism and pinpoint gameplay mechanics, bringing every serve, swing and backhand to life while replicating the sporting experience in the comfort of the living room." With over 30 environments available in locations inspired by real-world landmarks (including the beach of Copacabana and the foot of Mount Fuji), the "playing fields come to life with animated backgrounds, dynamic sound mixes and day and environments." We'll get 11 different athletes with which to experiment, and each athlete will have 30 outfits, 30 hairstyles and 15 different racquets, so there's no shortage of customization options. Lastly, because it will likely be best played with others, the game allows four people to play together cooperatively or competitively.
"Racquet Sports and the PlayStation Move motion controller combine highly precise and intuitive motion control with the full PlayStation 3 system HD gaming experience to create the most accurate, responsive and ultra-sensory gaming experience that will allow players to pull the game out of the TV and into the living room."
