Virtua Tennis: World Tour smashing PSPs

Sega's tennis game to cause a racket on Sony's portable this fall; PSP version will feature minigames and wireless play.

Sega today announced that it will be serving up a game of tennis on the PlayStation Portable. Virtua Tennis: World Tour, the on-the-go heir apparent to 2002's PlayStation 2 game Sega Sports Tennis, is scheduled for release this fall on the PSP. The game is currently in the works from UK-based studio Sumo Digital, the developer of OutRun 2 for the Xbox.

The game will feature three modes: world tour, exhibition, and tournament. Gamers will be able to make their own tennis star, or they can choose from a roster of pros. Players will be able to serve and volley on hard, clay, grass, and carpet courts, and they can even play up to three other PSP owners with the unit's wireless capabilities.

GameSpot will have more on Virtua Tennis: World Tour soon.
