Publisher EA has announced that it will be releasing EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis 2 on Xbox 360 and PS3 next year.
It’s the only game to feature the licenses of all four tennis Grand Slams – Roland Garros, The US Open, the Australian Open and Wimbledon. It’s also the only tennis title to feature the English tournament.
Surprisingly the game won’t support Microsoft’s Kinect, but will offer PlayStation Move support on PS3. Those who prefer the pad can take advantage of the Total Racquet Control system which uses the right analogue stick to activate the assortment of different stroke types.
Players both past and present will feature, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Bjorn Borg, Maria Sharapova, Serena and Venus Williams. Gobby John McEnroe also features as an exclusive player not found in any other title.
The in-game stars have been designed using the Professional, Realistic, Organic system that promises precise likenesses, right down to signature swings, emotional reactions and on-court strategy.
“We are very excited to bring the EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis franchise to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms and leverage the graphical power of these high definition consoles,” line producer Thomas Singleton stated.
“Players will now get to experience the excitement and drama of serving it up on famous tennis venues such as Wimbledon’s famed Centre Court.”
