AO International Tennis – last year’s disappointing Australian Open tie-in – is getting a PlayStation 4 sequel, but this time it’s landed a publisher in Tennis World Tour’s BigBen Interactive. The sequel aims to expand upon the original with a narrative-driven career mode that promises to spotlight the activities of an upcoming pro both on and off the court.

The character and court editors from the original will return, with all 20,000 original creations ported across. This should make up for any potential licensing holes, though the likes of Rafa Nadal and Angélique Kerber will be included in the release. All of the arenas from the Australian Open will be included as well.

The title’s due out on 9th January, with more gameplay details scheduled to be shared ahead of release. In the meantime, check out the title’s debut trailer embedded above.
