Hot Shots Tennis Hits PSP June 29!

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda's Avatar Posted by Producer

What better way to celebrate the Tennis season than by picking up your own very copy of Hot Shots Tennis, out next week, on June 29, as a digital download from out every own PlayStation Store or as a UMD from your local retailers.

Check out the video below to get a glimpse into some of the new Hot Shots Tennis features!

There you have it folks:

  • Brand new RPG styled gameplay.
  • One-of-a-kind gamesharing features
  • Ad-hoc multiplayer (Singles or Doubles matches)
  • Multiple customization options with a touch of the Hot Shots flare
  • Great new zainy characters and one menacing Helgasht soldier.

If that isn’t temping enough… we’ll then here is a little bit of extra love from us: the Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip demo is out now for downloading madness! So what are you waiting for? Plug-in, log-in and get your download on! FYI, it wouldn’t hurt to have a couple of vuvuzelas at hand to help with the ear-drum busting celebration!

Love the demo, can’t wait til June 29th. I’m always down for some Hot Shots ANYTHING.

This game reminds me of Super Tennis for the SNES.. which is an extremely good thing :D

PlayStation does everything except have good browser support! This is bad because my computer does not work, so videos in the blog dont work, so i dont get to see them. Please look into this and post a blog about it.

I downloaded the demo because I was bored and cannot stop playing, and I am happy that there is other stuff to do than just play tennis. I am definitely buying this game day 1…..any word on DLC?

I played the demo and it looks fantastic and I was wondering if the file that I saved (in the demo) can be transferred to the full product?

@19 It says it will in the demo…

I’m really annoyed by the PSP, I’m not a “handheld” console guy and I’ll never be, I prefers to play on a big screen. …but Sony keep on releasing some interesting titles on PSP that don’t get a release on PS3… Hot Shot Tennis, PJ Monsters Deluxe etc. I know that, for some, that’s good marketing, but for me it’s not because no matter what happens, not matter if all my favorites games would onnly be released on an handheld console I’ll will never buy one…so, Sony is just saying me, you are a customer of us but we’ll still give you the opportunity to play only some of our games, not all. :/ I’ll would really like to be able to use an adress for the blog that only gives me updates that concerns the PS3 and not the PSP too…

Just a wanna-be-constructive comment.

I’m loving the demo, and really looking forward to the release! It’s cool that I can transfer my progress to the full game. That’s a feature more demos need to include. Also, I’d love to see a PS3 version of Hot Shots Tennis, along with a new Hot Shots Golf game sometime soon.

When will those who won this at the Playstation Blog Meetup receive an email for this?

bnogradi28 said:

@29 Sorry to say but no…

bnogradi28 said:

June 21st, 4:32 pm

@23 I believe it’s gonna be $19.99 at least that’s what GameStop says….


June 21st, 4:48 pm

During E3, Chris was on gamespot talking bout GT5. In the entire interview it seemed like he didn’t know anything bout the game or was slowly readin off of cue cards. I was hopin to here some more in depth stories bout the game. Rather than the repeated stuff. Word to the wise, when talkin bout a high profile game, either one, be prepared, or two, get Kazunori Yamauchi with note pad translator guy.

Played the demo the day it came out and haven’t stopped playing it.


Games come out on consoles you may or may not have all the time, get over it.

PJM is on the PS3 though.

Jeigh said:

That RPG-esque gameplay style is EXACTLY what I’m looking for! Sort of reminds me of Pokemon, which I consider pretty much the ultimate portable game- or at least it was back when I was kid. Haven’t seen any game since that properly replicates the feel- certainly not from the original makers, and not from any other.

After this and the announcement of GoW:Ghost of Sparta, the PSP is looking better. If only the entire year were like this, rather than the week or two following E3… =(

ProjectInfiniti said:

June 21st, 5:05 pm

Why oh why did you guys have to release it on the 29th!? :[

I want to get this game on release from PSN so bad but i’m already putting payment on for PS+!

The first chance I get i’ll buy this asap! The demo is awesome!

jimmyfoxhound said:

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Valkyria Chronicles 2, Hot Shots Tennis, Patapon 3, Ace Combat:Joint Assault, Kingdom Hearts.. man, unbelievable year for the PSP!!

Don’t forget about The 3rd Birthday. I’m buying a PSP just for that game.

Sutee899 said:

Day one buy for me. I’ve spent like 6 hours on the demo; I didn’t know tennis was so addictive.

Demo was addicting, but I’m waiting for a PSP2, if Sony takes too long I’m jumping ship to Nintendo 3DS.

The demo for this was my first taste of HotShots anything, and it was okay. Granted, the whole thing is new to me, and I was terrible at it, but I like the style and presentation. And I don’t even like tennis in real life. Almost earned my purchase…but June 29, I’m buying Ace Combat that day. Sorry. Cool game though.

It looks like someone broke the blog.

I own(and love) Hot Shots Golf for my PSP and PS3.The demo for Hot Shots Tennis is great fun, and it is a must buy for me. If Clap Hanz develops it for the PS3 as well, I’ll buy that one too. Keep up the great work!

DJ_EWOK said:

I love the demo but can’t believe there’s no online play. I love playing HSG2 online and if this one had online play it could have been really special. Oh well maybe in the sequel…

mrkapawutzis said:

I am really looking forward to this. I love the RPG aspects of the game and the way you build up a character. By the way, Chris looks a lot different in the picture than he does in the video. In the pic he looks like a little kid :)
