EA Serves Up Grand Slam Tennis 2

Next year, owners of high-definition consoles will discover what Wii owners already know - Grand Slam Tennis is a solid ace. After the first installment's smashing success, the popular franchise is about leap into high-definition territory. That’s why we’re proud to announce Grand Slam Tennis 2, set to release in 2012!

Grand Slam Tennis 2 is set to be the definitive tennis game, featuring all four Grand Slam championships. It's the only game where you can experience the legendary grass courts of Wimbledon for yourself along with the US Open, Australian Open and French Open. In addition to replaying some of the sport's most memorable moments in ESPN Grand Slam Tournament Classics, you can start your own 10-year career playing singles or doubles with a custom character. Outside of the career mode, the game features a roster of 20 tennis greats, both past and present.

Of course, the game adds more than just a shiny coat of hi-def paint. Grand Slam Tennis 2 introduces a new way to play with the optional Total Racquet Control. This system allows for precision forehands, backhands, overheads, volleys, and smashes—all accomplished with the right stick. The game will also have PlayStation Move support, which means you can get your whole body in on the action with each swing.

Tennis fans can dive into the action on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2012 and you can pre-order the game today on Origin!
