Sega Superstars Tennis shipped in North America today for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS and PS2. The game features several of the most recognized Sega game characters smashing it up on outrageously designed tennis environments.
Developed by the makers of Virtua Tennis 3, Sega Superstars Tennis includes 16 Sega characters, each of which has its own specialty in speed, power, control, spin and all-around ability, as well its own unique Superstar power.
Each Superstar power pays tribute to the unique characteristics of each character; from Sonic The Hedgehog’s Super Sonic transformation, the trail of banana peels left by AiAi from Super Monkey Ball and even the dancing power of Amigo’s floating maracas from Samba De Amigo.
All the game’s tennis action is played out on over-the-top tennis courts inspired by a host of different Sega worlds including Green Hill Zone from Sonic The Hedgehog and Advanced Arena from Super Monkey Ball.
Sega Superstars Tennis also features a host of unlockable content, ranging from classic/archival Sega soundtrack music and family friendly mini-games. These mini-games include smashing tennis balls into a horde of hungry zombies in the HOUSE OF THE DEAD-inspired Curien Mansion and hitting groundstrokes to help guide “ChuChu” mice in Chu Chu Rocket. Up to four players can compete in each mini-game.
Additional hidden features will be revealed as players complete different tournament and mission games in the PPlanet Superstars” mode.
