Sega has today released some stunning new player renders from Virtua Tennis 4, which is due for release on Wii this Spring. The game boasts its strongest player roster to date, featuring some of the world’s top stars, including Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Andy Murray for the men, and Venus Williams, Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova for the women. Here’s Gary Knight, senior vice president of Marketing at SEGA, talking about the game:
Virtua Tennis 4 is going to be a massive push forward for the series. New technology has allowed for the development of innovative styles of gameplay, meaning Virtua Tennis can reach a level of realism not seen before in the tennis genre.”

VT4 will also have a totally new World Tour career mode designed to encourage replay value with an element of off-court fame. Each decision affects a player’s career path, meaning no two careers will ever be the same, while a brand-new on-court feature makes for even more dramatic singles and doubles matches, as players get to build up their Match Momentum gauge over the course of a match and revel in their improved ability as their players grow in confidence.
