Atari picks up Smash Court Tennis 3

Serving to Europe in June.

Atari has picked up the rights to Smash Court Tennis 3 and will be serving it to Europe in June.

This Namco Bandai-take on the pleated-skirt sport is exclusive to Xbox 360 and outfitted with 16 of the most famous faces around: Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal, Sue Barker, Cliff Richard, and so forth.

It boasts fancy graphics and plenty of customisation ranging from rackets to shoes and hair to skin.

Four of you can play offline together, or you can pop on Live to take part in rankings or team up with a friend for a spot of doubles. Otherwise there are Tutorial, Arcade and Pro-Tour modes to enjoy.

Smash Court Tennis 3 is already out in Japan, where it it scored 32/40 in Famitsu 360.

It was released on PSP last year and got a decent 7/10 from us. However, Smash Court Tennis 3 has stiff competition in Virtua Tennis and Top Spin 3.
