From the Publisher: Virtua Tennis returns for a third iteration, featuring improved AI, higher detail for the characters, and various modes such as career, mini-games, and more.
The fun, addicting, award-winning series continues with Virtua Tennis 3, built specifically for next-gen consoles. With ultra-realistic graphics and precise player control, gamers will hit the court and play as or against today's tennis elite including Federer, Hingis, Hewitt, Sharapova, Roddick, Nadal, and Williams. A new multiplayer mode allows up to four friends to battle it out on 23 courts around the world. As they serve up their best in a mix of exhibitions, tournaments and competitions, players will rise through the ranks and battle for the top spot!
Previous Eyeshield 21 games featured rudimentary D-pad control schemes but the Wii version puts you in the game with lots of hand jive and wrist flicking motion. When two teams are at the line of scrimmage, wag the Wiimote left and right so your team pushes up against the opposing team. To snap a throw to a receiver, wave the remote back and then whip your arm forward to hurl pigskin. Kicks are performed by lifting the Wiimote upwards in an uninterrupted arc to punt the football.
The usual characters are featured in the game including the monster known as Ryokan Kurita, the maniacal Yoichi Hiruma, Taro Raimon, and Mamori Anezaki. Ten teams battle it out on the field such as the Ohjo White Knights, Koigahama Cupid, Zokugaku Chameleons, Taiyo Sphinx, Seibu Wild Gunmans, and the NASA Aliens. An interactive and stylized game of football is the main thrust of Wii Eyeshield 21 but mini-games may also be enjoyed including a grilling challenge which mimics Yakiniku Bugyou Bonfire! «more»

The glitch with the VF5 joystick has been fixed and our suppliers in Japan will be receiving them tomorrow. Please note however that pricing will be changed.
