Atari serves Smash Court Tennis 3

Publisher bringing Namco Bandai's sim tennis game to stateside Xbox 360s this August.

One of the games Microsoft and Namco Bandai Games showed off at last year's Tokyo Game Show was Smash Court Tennis 3. Released for the Xbox 360 in Japan last December, the game will now apparently be getting a North American release as well. Atari said today that it would be importing Smash Court Tennis 3 to Microsoft's console this August.

Federer typically doesn't have cause to frown.

Not to be confused with the upcoming Top Spin 3 or Virtua Tennis 3, Smash Court Tennis 3 is Namco Bandai's latest realistic sim tennis title, and features 16 top performers on the pro circuit, including Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal, Martina Hingis, Andreas Seppi, and Nicole Vaidisova. The game packs an extensive suite of customization options that will let players create their own personalized superstars.

Smash Court 3 offers a host of graphic and gameplay updates form its legacy-generation precursors. Players will be able to compete in a variety of modes, including Tutorial, Arcade, Pro-Tour, and Exhibition, and Smash Court 3 will accommodate online play over Xbox Live. Online matches accommodate up to four players, gamers can compete in online tournaments, and the game supports leaderboards and voice chat.

For an idea of what to expect from Smash Court Tennis 3, check out GameSpot's review of the PlayStation Portable of the game, released last July.

For pure fun, which is what I like to get from a video game, this leaves me cold compared to the Wii tennis games.

this game wont stand against top spin 3. iam a tennis player and just for the fact that top spin 3 is having real rackets and stuff that do exist not like smash court that maybe would have great graphics but i (and also all real tennis players) would not like to buy a game with fictional rackets and stuff

I have waited for this day ever since I heard about this game last winter. Woot for Top Spin 3 and Smash Court Tennis 3 this summer.
