Sega has announced a 2009 installment
in its Virtua Tennis
series ... called Virtua Tennis 2009
. We thought it was pretty clever.
Set to grace the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this May, Virtua Tennis 2009
offers the expected singles, doubles and mixed doubles matches, along with the series' trademark World Tour mode (now complete with online leaderboards). You can also expect to take several real-life tennis stars through "Court Games," minigames said to feature "crocodiles, fruit and pirates." If that isn't tennis, we don't know what is.
