SEGA’s Virtua Tennis series has been a firm favourite of many sports fans, but it appears the PS3 version will be the one to get when it lands next month.
Over on the PlayStation Blog, producer Mie Kumagai has outlined a few of the reasons why in the first of a welcome set of developer insights.
“I’m happy to announce that on the PlayStation 3 VT fans can expect some extra exclusive content not available on other platforms, and today is where we’ll tell you a little bit more about this,” says Kumagai.
“Firstly, the game features legend players for anyone wanting to relive some classic tennis moments. On the PS3, you’ll be able to get your hands on Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg and Pat Rafter, who will be exclusive and playable from the moment you load up the game.”
The PS3 version will also feature two exclusive party games – the first is old fave Pin Crusher, and the second is Move only Net Blitz, which challenges you to build up a score by returning balls into different sized nets. The smaller the net, the more points it will earn you if you hit it.
There’s also going to be a new minigame for PlayStation Home which has a “space invaders” feel about it, and the racket pack that you see above, emphasising the Move controller options.
