SEGA has made Virtua Tennis 4 official at gamescom. The game is being developed by the original Virtua Tennis Japanese team and will support Move and 3D.

The Move compatibility is said to be very accurate, with Sony’s new motion controller picking up the slightest of movements.

SCEE’s Simon Rutter, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing commented: “Virtua Tennis 4 is a fantastic example of how our 3rd Party partners are seeing the potential not just in PlayStation Move, but also 3D. The combination of both Move and 3D offers an entirely new gaming experience and one that has the potential to completely change how people interact with their entertainment. Virtua Tennis 4 shows how this technology can be implemented and we are very excited to be working with SEGA on this.”

SEGA’s American and European Senior Vice President of Marketing, Gary Knight, had this to say: “We have always strived to provide a tennis experience that is both true to the sport and great fun to play, and we are continuing to work with Sony to make this happen. With Virtua Tennis 4 being developed for PlayStation Move and featuring 3D technology, the boundaries of realism in sports video games are being pushed even further”

The game will be released on PS3 next year. Other format versions (if any) have yet to be announced.
