It seems like tennis video games have declined over the past decade or so. I know I personally miss the days of Virtua Tennis! Bigben and Maximum Games have announced that Tennis World Tour Roland-Garros Edition is coming to the Nintendo Switch on May 20, 2019. No word if there are any Switch-specific additions (like motion controls), but the game should feature an online leaderboard and private matches. Check out the details below:
This May, two major names in international tennis will be swelling the ranks of Tennis World Tour Roland-Garros Edition, bringing the number of ATP and WTA stars available in the game to 33.
Players can step into the shoes of Rafael Nadal, 11-time winner of Roland-Garros, and Kristina Mladenovic, a French player ranked amongst the top 50 in the world, for matches on the clay courts of Roland-Garros.
To achieve the level of realism players have come to expect, Bigben and Break Point studio used motion capture to record the signature movements of top players. This means you can experience Mladenovic’s powerful serve and Nadal’s looping forehand, along with the latter’s unique serve preparation.
Tennis World Tour Roland-Garros Edition provides an optimized playing experience and even more content. On all types of surfaces, and especially on the legendary clay courts of Roland-Garros, players take on the biggest stars in world tennis, such as Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Gaël Monfils.
Tennis World Tour Roland-Garros Edition is the complete game, and includes:
32 of the world’s best players, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka, Kristina Mladenovic and legends Andre Agassi and John McEnroe
Over 21 courts of every surface type, including the new main courts at Roland-Garros: Philippe-Chatrier, Suzanne-Lenglen and Simonne-Mathieu. Tennis World Tour Roland-Garros Edition gives players the chance to be the first to play on these courts in their finished state
The central court at the Mutua Madrid Open: “La Caja Magica”
A career mode that realistically simulates a player’s career, with training, matches, qualifications and more
A new customization tool to create your own player from the ground up
An online mode with a Leaderboard and private matches
Tennis World Tour – Roland-Garros Edition will be available in May 20, 2019 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.
