Grand Slam Tennis News Post

MCV had a few moments to chat with EA’s marketing director for the UK and Ireland, Stuart Lang, as they talk about the upcoming potential for EA Sports Tennis.

"We’re particularly excited about the prospect of bringing EA Sports Tennis to the Wii in 2009 – there’s huge potential there,” said Lang.

“Obviously working with a recognisable brand or licence gives you a head-start in capturing consumer attention, but we believe there’s also scope to break new IP. That focus and commitment will also be channelled into breaking EA Sports Active as an essential fitness product for the Wii."

Didn't see anything about other consoles.

Can you confirm that it would be on JUST the Wii?

Its supposed to be out for all three systems, I believe. But so far we have very little info about this game. It wouldn't surprise me if it was already cancelled because Power & Magic, Sega and 2K seem to have a lock on Tennis, which is unfortunate because I'm tired of playing their Tennis games (Top Spin and Virtua Tennis). If this game does materialize I hope it plays a lot different than TS and VT. But most likely it won't. The gameplay style of VT and TS has gotten so popular that developers have to copy it.

I picked up a copy of Smash Court Tennis 3 this last week I haven't really played many other tennis games but, I seemed to enjoy it. You could try that one if you haven't already. I think an EA tennis game would be a nice installment.
