EA Sports has today announced Grand Slam Tennis 2, the sequel to their 2009 Wii title Grand Slam Tennis, will be launching next year on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Grand Slam Tennis 2 will introduce the series to HD consoles for the first time. The title, which is the only game to feature Wimbledon, will allow gamers to experience all four Grand Slam championships, as an array of elite tennis players from both the past and present.
“We are very excited to bring the EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis franchise to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms and leverage the graphical power of these high definition consoles,” said Line Producer Thomas Singleton
The franchise may be making its way to HD consoles, but it wont be leaving its motion control roots behind, as the PS3 version of the title will have full support for the PlayStation Move controller.
EA Sports are working to introduce a range of new gameplay features this time around, as well as revisiting some of the features and game modes from the first game. Total Racquet Control is an all-new control scheme, that allows players to control every shot with the right analog stick, making it easier to pull off different shots, with more precision than ever.
