Firstly let me introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me. My name is Mie Kumagai and I’m the Executive Producer on Virtua Tennis 4 and have worked on the game since the original version became available in 1999 on arcade machines across the world. This is the first of a series of blogs about Virtua Tennis 4, which is out on May 10th, but I’d like to start with a few words about the big earthquake that hit Japan on March 11.
Everybody over here deeply appreciates your concern and consideration for us. Things have still not gotten back to normal, and areas around Tokyo are suffering from planned outages due to electricity shortages, but we are doing our very best to deliver Virtua Tennis 4 to you.
Today’s blog is geared up to tell you all about what’s new for Virtua Tennis 4 on the PlayStation 3, there are a host of new features including PlayStation Move compatibility, a brand new World Tour and online centre, plus plenty of others.
