SEGA ANNOUNCES VIRTUA TENNIS: WORLD TOUR ON PSP

SEGA's Popular Sports Franchise Gears Up for a Handheld Tour in Summer 2005

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (May 10, 2005) – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. today served up an ace by announcing that they will publish Virtua Tennis™: World Tour for the PSP™ portable entertainment system. Continuing the effort to develop SEGA IP products in the Western markets, SEGA has chosen SUMO Digital, the UK based development team behind the Xbox version of OutRun 2 to develop Virtua Tennis: World Tour. The arcade and home console hit, widely regarded for its fast-paced, accessible gameplay, is confirmed for release in Fall 2005.

Virtua Tennis: World Tour will feature a playable array of internationally renowned tennis pros in addition to a make-your-own player mode, exclusive mini-games, and original courts. Wi-Fi gameplay is supported, encouraging up to four friends to play together.

"SEGA has maintained the solid gameplay of the Virtua Tennis franchise, while adding personalization options and brand new mini-games; features critical to gamers on the go," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Entertainment Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Virtua Tennis: World Tour will also feature a robust roster of licensed players, so gamers can challenge their favorite pro tennis stars head-on."

Virtua Tennis: World Tour features three core gameplay modes: World Tour, where players travel the globe using a custom-created character to win cash; Exhibition, where players can take control of a pro tennis all-star for one-off matches; and Tournament, which puts players in knockout sessions where only the best will see victory.

Fun to play for minutes or hours and always challenging, it's easy to see why Virtua Tennis: World Tour is perfectly suited for the PSP system.
