NEW YORK, April 24, 2008 –- Atari, Inc., one of the world’s most recognized brands and a third-party video game publisher and distributor, today announced the upcoming launch of Smash Court Tennis™ 3 for the Xbox 360.
The first in the revered tennis simulation series for the new console generation, Smash Court Tennis™ 3 for Xbox 360 tests the player’s skills against 16 of the world’s finest international tennis players. From established stars such as world number one Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal, and Martina Hingis, to rising talents including Italy’s Andreas Seppi and Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic, each player has their own strengths and weaknesses which come into play on the game’s painstakingly rendered courts.
Smash Court Tennis™ 3 boasts enhanced graphics including improved player animations, realistic shadows, and skin shaders; a host of customizing options allows players to choose rackets, shoes, hairstyles, skin tone, and clothing to create their own unique star of the courts. New gameplay includes a system which lets all players — no matter what their skill level — benefit quickly from the powerful shots and finely honed skills of the star players. The game also has an online mode, which allows players to compete with other Xbox users via the internet.
