E3 2011: Virtua Tennis 4 Heading To Vita

SEGA has announced that the PlayStation Vita will be getting a little tennis love when it is released. Virtua Tennis 4 is set to be one of the launch titles for the Vita and a pretty good choice for the tennis fans out there. Some of the great features coming to the Vita will change the way you play tennis on the go, from customizing your character with a photo of your own face, to a special Touch Versus Match which allows two players to battle on the same Vita. This one will be sure to please.

Here is a little more information before you checkout some of the screenshots below.

“With Virtua Tennis 4 on NGP the team have embraced many of the features that the new hardware is capable of, including the high-definition graphics, Touch Panel control, network functionality, motion sensing system and the camera,” commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “The way the team have been able to implement this brings the Virtua Tennis series to a whole new level on NGP.”

No tennis title would be complete without the world’s top stars, and there are 22 to choose from in the game, including Federer, Nadal, Murray and Djokovic, but Virtua Tennis 4 really comes into its own when showcasing the technology the NGP has to offer. On top of front and rear Touch Panel controls used both on and off court, gamers will also be able to play the whole game with classic pad controls. NGP’s Party function makes the World Tour Map and Online Mode fully social experiences where gamers can track their friends progress, chat, share stats and comments, and challenge people to online matches.
