GC10; Virtua Tennis 4 announced with Move and 3D compatibility
SEGA have officially announced Virtua Tennis 4. It’s coming to PlayStation 3 and it’ll be both Move and 3D compatible. Releasing in 2011, Virtua Tennis 4 promises a more “immersive, true to life tennis experience than ever before.”
Virtua Tennis 4 is being developed in Japan by the original Virtua Tennis team and, by the sounds of things, they’ve really bought into Move’s celebrated accuracy. They say:
“it’s about the angle of the racquet, the spin and the speed of the ball and the power of the shot. The advanced motion sensors of PlayStation Move precisely track both the fast and subtle movements of the controller allowing for pinpoint accurate shots as players improve their racquet skills.”
Virtual Tennis will also be featuring Sony’s other stand-out feature, 3D technology. SEGA say it will deliver “unprecedented realism to the tennis experience, bringing you closer than ever before to being out on court.”
It has to be said: PlayStation Move and Virtua Tennis 4 sounds like a perfect fit. Plus, 3D has been getting rave reviews whenever it’s used for sports, so this sounds like a win-win all round. Although, having a tennis ball look like it’s coming straight for your face doesn’t sound too appealing.
It’s not the prettiest game – it’s your typical SEGA arcade-style – but Virtua Tennis games usually put gameplay ahead of graphics so we’re optimistic. Check out the screenshots below…
