SEGA superstars to play tennis


SEGA announced a tennis game today where their most famous characters will face off “in some of the most unusual courts and outrageous settings ever imagined”. Developed by Sumo Digital, the game is called SEGA Superstars Tennis and includes over 15 characters like Sonic the Hedgehog, AiAi from Super Monkeyball fame, Ulala of Space Channel 5 and Amigo from Samba De Amigo.

Exhibition mode offers the chance to challenge Sonic, or the character or your choice, to a match on one of many courts, including Sonic’s home court of Green Hill Zone, or Amigo’s Carnival Park court. Wherever you play there will be a host of SEGA celebrities cheering you on from courtside and by partaking in crazy doubles matches with your choice of partner, you could end up playing against some pretty unusual couples! Prove your SEGA hero is the shining star of SEGA Superstars Tennis by collecting silverware in the Tournament Mode. There will also be the opportunity to unlock a host of exciting extras which will be announced in the near future!

SEGA Superstars Tennis will be released early 2008 for PS2, PS3, Wii, DS and Xbox 360. PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will also be able to take the tennis action online.

Gary Knight, European Marketing Director: “SEGA Superstars Tennis has the potential to be one of the most fun and accessible sports games ever. The fantastic Sumo Digital team has had access to a wealth of SEGA IP and you’ll be surprised at the gaming icons that will be making an appearance!”
