Remember when there were tennis games like Virtua Tennis and Top Spin? Well Bigben and Breakpoint do, and they’ve announced Tennis World Tour, set to come to consoles and PC next year.
Mentioning Top Spin is actually rather appropriate as the team behind Tennis World Tour previously worked on that series. Pierre André, Game Designer on Tennis World Tour and Top Spin 4 Producer said, “For years we’ve wanted to create a new tennis game, a spiritual successor to Top Spin 4. Technical evolutions now mean we can create the ultra-realistic simulation that we’ve been dreaming of.”
They’re aiming for more of a simulation than an arcade game, with a range of playing styles and positioning and strategy on court all important to your success. Following in Top Spin’s steps, they’ll have more than 30 real world players including Roger Federer, Gaël Monfils, Angelique Kerber, Garbiñe Muguruza.
There’s little else to go on right now, without even key art or screenshots – that thumbnail we’re using? It’s from Top Spin 4. You can expect to see more of the game at Gamescom this year, though.
