With the world’s great tennis stars taking to the courts, Virtua Tennis 2009 comes smashing back into action on PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360, PC and (for the first time) on the Wii in May 2009.
Take on the world’s top players (eight new to Virtua Tennis), create your own custom player and join the new World Tour to play for the #1 ranking, then take your character online and prove you’re the best with the new online ranking system!
There are 40 court environments across the globe to put your skills to the test, all in lifelike, genre-leading graphics. Plus, the popular court games are back with six brand new games for Virtua Tennis 2009.
New Court Games:
The first of the new court games, Pot Shot, allows you to play a game of pool by using the racket as the cue and the tennis ball as the white ball. The goal is to get the most points in this instant classic.
In Pirate Wars the player is tasked to avoid the cannon balls and hit back the tennis balls which are fired at you by the pirate ships at the other end of the court. These ships come in different shapes and sizes and will be a different challenge every time around. Sink them all to progress to the next level.
Block Buster builds a wall with different colour blocks on the other side of the court. By matching up colours, players have to clear the blocks in combinations to score the most points possible.
New to the console version of Virtua Tennis, Count Mania is a perfect way to practise your precision. Following the order of the numbers, the player must hit different zones of the court to rack up the biggest combo.
In Zoo Feeder, the zoo keepers on the left and right throw different kinds of food at the player. The objective is to hit the food back to the correct animal, so make sure a banana doesn’t get thrown at a panda bear.
Last but not least, Shopping Dash has the player practicing their footwork, by collecting different kinds of groceries while avoiding the balls being shot at you from the other side of the court.
