News: The first game on the road to E3 is a smash.
Late last night Sega began their Road To E3 countdown with the announcement of Virtua Tennis 3 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The game is currently scheduled to ship in Spring 2007.
?This is shaping up to be an outstanding title - a genuine next generation sports game,? commented Matt Woodley, Creative Director of SEGA. ?Instant appeal and all the best of the VT brand is being added to an array of new gameplay features. Virtua Tennis 3 provides a must have in-depth experience - though I'd say the graphics alone are reason to buy and the quality is so sharp and clear you can even see the veins on the players necks!?
Virtua Tennis 3 will include all the trappings of the series including Career Mode, a Player Creator and a host of minigames, both new and old.
Sega also plans to focus on that whole next-generation thing with by saying the graphics will be "photo-realistic" and the "advanced player animations [will] perfectly match the behaviour and mannerisms of individual professional players".
Sega will continue on this Road To E3 right up until the big show with the next announcement coming at midnight (Pacific Time) tonight.
