Wii Nets Top Spin Tennis

Tired of the basic tennis game included with Wii Sports? Good news, because 2K Sports has plans to release a Top Spin game for the Nintendo Wii. PAM Development and 2K Shanghai have teamed up for development of the game, which will see release during spring of 2008.

Top Spin Tennis for the Wii uses the Nunchuk to control the player and aim, while the Wii Remote is used as a tennis racquet, determining the style and power of a shot. The Wii Remote is also used to serve.

The game will include four levels of difficulty for its singles, doubles, mixed and non-mixed matches, exhibition and tournament modes. The game supports up to four sets of controllers should you have some friends over; if you get tired of regular tennis, there are several party games included as well.

"We are excited to bring our popular Top Spin series to the Wii," said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. "Given the Wii's unique controllers and the fun family-oriented gameplay, Top Spin Tennis effectively bridges the gap between a sports and a party game."

PAM Development is also heading up development on Top Spin 3, which will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next year.
