Electronic Arts is trying its arm out at tennis with a new game that will be first made available in 2009 on Wii and will take advantage of the new Wii MotionPlus accessory.
“As we look to expand the EA SPORTS brand and captivate sports fans from around the world with rich new interactive experiences, it was obvious that the renaissance we’re seeing in the sport of tennis provides us with a big opportunity,” said Peter Moore, President, EA SPORTS. “Our new tennis franchise, coming first to the Wii, will put fans right into the action and provide the excitement, tension and drama that true champions feel in legendary matches – like the classic from Wimbledon just last month.”
Furthermore, EA say that its new tennis game will be the only one to feature the All England Lawn Tennis Club – home of The Championships, Wimbledon.
The unnamed tennis franchise will be released on other platforms in due course. More details as they arrive.
