Virtua Tennis 4 Announced, To Be 3D And Move Compatible
Virtua Tennis is coming back and this time, you'll be able to swing away for real.
Sega of America has announced Virtua Tennis 4 exclusively for the PlayStation 3; it'll boast PlayStation Move compatibility and 3D technology. Developed by the same team that handled the original VT, the fourth installment should prove to be the most immersive, technically accomplished title yet. Scheduled to release some time next year, you're really going to have to be a tactician with that Move controller in your hand: it's not just about hitting the ball, "it's about the angle of the racket, the spin and speed of the ball, and the power of the shot." Move can precisely track all your movements that will result in pinpoint accuracy on the court. Said Simon Rutter, SCEE Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing:
"Virtua Tennis 4 is a fantastic example of how our 3rd Party partners are seeing the potential not just in PlayStation Move, but also 3D. The combination of both Move and 3D offers an entirely new gaming experience and one that has the potential to completely change how people interact with their entertainment. Virtua Tennis 4 shows how this technology can be implemented and we are very excited to be working with SEGA on this."
The full player roster will be revealed "in the coming months" and debuted at the Sony Europe stand at GamesCom. As soon as we can gather up enough details and new media, we'll do up a preview for ya. I'm a tennis fan myself and although I wasn't entirely satisfied with Virtua Tennis 3, it'll be very interesting to see what this will be like with Move and 3D. For the time being, check out some early Virtua Tennis 4 screenshots.
