Top Spin 4 announced

Has "uncanny level of realism".

2K Sports has announced tennis simulation Top Spin 4.

It's due out next year for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii, and is in development over at Mafia II creator 2K Czech.

We're promised redesigned controls, "jaw-dropping" player models and "Signature Style" animations.

There's also an "enhanced TV-style presentation" and "one of the deepest player rosters to date".

2K Games promises an "exciting pre-order incentive", which will be revealed closer to launch. But we do know that one pre-order bonus will be a playable Andre Agassi – valid only for the PS3 and 360 versions.

"Top Spin 4 is shaping up to be the most realistic and exhilarating tennis game in the Top Spin franchise," said 2K Sports president of product development Greg Thomas.

"For this iteration, the development team is focused on delivering a bold new take on the sport of tennis by allowing gamers to experience first-hand an uncanny level of realism in the player and stadium models, authentic audio captured directly from real tennis matches, and all-new innovative controls to dominate the competition."

The last game in the series, 2008's Top Spin 3, was proper good. Eurogamer awarded it 8/10.
