EA Launches Grand Slam Tennis for Wii
Electronic Arts announced today that EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis is now available in North American retail stores and will be available worldwide by June 12, 2009. Developed specifically for the Wii by EA Canada, Grand Slam Tennis offers the deepest and richest tennis gaming experience at all four Grand Slams and is the only game to feature Wimbledon. Experience the thrill of playing on famed Centre Court or under the lights at the U.S. Open.
With authentic tennis motions, users will feel like they are actually playing tennis. They can vie for tennis immortality in Grand Slam Career mode by winning all four majors, a feat Roger Federer accomplished yesterday after winning his first French Open. With the win, he tied Pete Sampras with 14 career Grand Slam titles. Both are among the licensed players in Grand Slam Tennis, which includes some of the greatest in tennis history. John McEnroe appears exclusively in the game and graces the North American cover, along with Federer and Serena Williams. Joining the trio is a mix of current stars and legends who collectively own 136 Grand Slam singles titles.
As one of the first titles compatible with the Wii MotionPlus accessory, the one-to-one motion in Grand Slam Tennis is taken to a higher and more authentic level. Gamers will be in full command of their players and in control every inch of the court with added shot depth and ball placement. In Europe, Grand Slam Tennis will be exclusively bundled with the Wii MotionPlus accessory.
