Sega is planning two demos for its upcoming Virtua Tennis 4. As Sega's Mie Kumagai notes on PlayStation Blog Europe, both demos will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3. The first demo will be released on April 13 in Europe -- April 19 in the US, Sega tells Joystiq -- and will show off the game's new World Tour mode. The newly revised globetrotting mode uses a board game layout, which you can glimpse in a trailer after the break. The demo will allow players to try out a small portion of the mode's first season.
Another demo is also planned for later this year. The second demo will include PlayStation Move support and will also let players test out the game's 3D functionality.
Developed in Japan by the original Virtua Tennis Team, Virtua Tennis 4, releasing in 2011, promises a more immersive, true to life tennis experience than ever before. Virtua Tennis 4 with the PlayStation Move is more than just hitting the ball; it's about the angle of the racquet, the spin and speed of the ball and the power of the shot. The advanced motion sensors of PlayStation Move precisely track both the fast and subtle movements of the controller allowing for pinpoint accurate shots as players improve their racquet skills. Virtua Tennis 4 will also support 3D technology delivering unprecedented realism to the tennis experience, bringing you closer than ever to being out on the court.
