Tennis Games Get One Step Closer to Touch Screen as Codemasters Gets Ready to Ship Rafa Nadal Tennis for the Nintendo DS –
Special Video Preview Now Available Online

Burbank, CA – Tuesday, December 19, 2006 – Codemasters confirmed today that Rafa Nadal Tennis, the unique tennis title headlined by the number 2 ranked player in the Association of Tennis Professionals, will launch on December 27, 2006 for the Nintendo DS. Additionally, fans can now check the game, set and match in action by watching a new video preview, now available online at http://www.codemasters.co.uk/rafanadal.

Designed exclusively for the Nintendo DS, Rafa Nadal Tennis serves up an innovative, fun and fast-paced game of tennis with unprecedented shot control via the touch screen. Using the stylus as both a directional pointer and as a racquet, players can move their tennis pro around the court and execute stunning serves, lobs, drop shots and power shots by sweeping the stylus across the touch screen.

Rafa Nadal Tennis features a trio of single-player game modes, including a full Career Mode, Quick Match and more. Career Mode allows players to create their own personalised pro and travel the world to become the best player on the circuit. The game also features a full tutorial mode appropriately labelled Tennis School, to train players in perfect stylus movements for delivering precise, match winning shots. There is also an option to switch between the stylus and traditional control pad, and the tutorial will adapt the contents of the lessons accordingly.

Rafa Nadal Tennis also includes a multiplayer component where up to four players can take the court for doubles or one-on-one single matches over wireless, even if the other players don’t have a copy of the game – the single-card wireless multiplayer mode enables up to four players to join a match from one copy of the game. An even more extensive multi-card multiplayer mode offers additional choice over court types and players.

Developed by Madrid-based Virtual Toys, Rafa Nadal Tennis will deliver a smashing game of touch screen tennis on December 27, 2006 for Nintendo DS.
