Virtua Tennis 4 for PS Vita launch

Can Sega serve another ace?

Sega has confirmed that its veteran Virtua Tennis series will be out on court for the launch of PlayStation Vita.

For Virtua Tennis 4, Sega - like most publishers with Vita games in the works promises to take advantage of the system's various clever hardware features.

The game will be playable via touch or standard control inputs, and you can turn yourself into a character using the camera or play as one of the 22 famous tennis types included.

There's also something called Touch Versus Match, which enables multiplayer on a single system, online play with a social dimension (friend chats, stat-sharing, challenges and so on), and the obligatory mention of "next generation" since this is a new console.

The current gen version of VT4 smashed an 8 in its Eurogamer review, and Sega has confirmed that the Vita instalment is under the watchful eye of the original development team.
