Virtua Tennis 4 confirmed for 360, Wii

Fuzzball sequel no longer PS3-only.

Virtua Tennis 4 is coming to Wii and Xbox 360, publisher SEGA has confirmed, not just the PlayStation 3 as was initially announced last year.

The latest entry in the tennis franchise will offer Move, MotionPlus and Kinect compatibility, as well as standard button controls for grey-haired gamers whose creaky knee joints render them permanently sofa-bound.

The standard array of tennis champs are all playable – expect Nadal, Federed, Murray et al – but SEGA Japan has also added in emerging stars Juan Martín Del Potro, Fernando Gonzalez, Caroline Wozniacki and Laura Robson.

There's a new World Tour mode too, and revamped online matchmaking.

"Virtua Tennis 4 is a huge push forward for the much loved SEGA series," claimed GEGA marketing boss Gary Knight. "New technology has allowed for the development of innovative styles of gameplay, meaning Virtua Tennis can reach a level of realism not seen before in the tennis genre."

No firm release date has been confirmed yet, but SEGA is promising a Spring launch for the game.
