For 13 years Sega’s Virtua Tennis series has thrilled sports gamers and now it’s smashing its way to PS Vita.
This portable version promises a ‘full console experience in the palm of your hand’, with 22 of the world’s top tennis players, 33 stadiums and high-res graphics.
Players can swipe Vita’s front screen to swing their in-game racquet and use the rear touch panel to navigate around the court and hit other shots.Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour Edition includes World Tour and Online modes, where players can share stats, chat with one another and play online matches. They can even upload their face into the game using Vita’s camera, or put tennis players into their photos.
“This is not just a straight port from its sister version – it’s had a lot of time and love spent on deep Vita support specifically, and I believe that will show,” says Sega West CEO Mike Hayes.
