Before the great Top Spin and Top Spin 2, there was only one tennis game that everyone adored and that of course was Virtua Tennis on the SEGA Dreamcast. With Top Spin 2 released recently, it is interesting to hear that Virtua Tennis 3 is coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3:
Sega has announced Virtua Tennis 3 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game, ported from the Arcade version of the same name, is tenatively slated to ship in Spring 2007. Given the graphical leap expected by next-generation hardware, the realistic character models in the Virtua Tennis series should see a serious upgrade.
Are you more into mini-games? The next-gen installment of Virtua Tennis will include updated versions of the classic skill improving challenges as well as some new mini-games. Additionally, the create-a-player mode will receive a new coat of next-gen polish.
Virtua Tennis was always in an arcade style of the sport, however it should be great fun and great news for tennis fans including myself.
