Lawn tennis: the gentleman's game.

SEGA's preparing to continue its rally with tennis games on portable PlayStations: PSP received Virtua Tennis World Tour and Virtua Tennis 3, and next year we'll see Virtua Tennis 4 come to PlayStation Vita.

As you can see from the fresh set of new screenshots and trailer below, the game is shaping up very nicely indeed, with a strange mode taking on the sepia tones of the past to bring back memories of when lawn tennis was a leisurely sport of good manners, flat caps and cucumber sandwiches, before all the grunting and sponsorship of the modern age. There's also a futuristic mode, where presumably everyone wears body armour and the action is all in your imagination.
