For those dying for a more realistic hardcore tennis game (anyone?), 2K Sports has some news. The publisher’s announced that Top Spin 4, the latest in the Top Spin tennis simulation franchise, will arrive on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii sometime “in 2011.” If that doesn’t tickle the tennis fancy, this should. Those that pre-order the title via GameStop (online or in stores) will receive an exclusive “vintage” Andre Agassi playable character. By vintage, that means the pre-order faithful will get the arena-rock looking, wig-mullet flowing, Barbara Streisand-dating, Agassi.
Developed by 2K Czech, Top Spin 4 includes “re-engineered from the ground up” gameplay controls, “jaw-dropping” player creations and Signature Style animations, enhanced TV-style presentation, and one of the deepest player rosters to date. This all adds up to what Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports, calls “the most realistic and exhilarating tennis game in the Top Spin franchise.”
No word yet on Kinect or Move compatibility, but that will likely be clarified as Top Spin 4 moves closer to launch.
