Virtua Tennis 4 has volleyed (15 for a tennis reference—oh, better make that 30) its way onto the 360, PS3, and Wii today. The latest release in the long-running series was developed by the original developers and features support for all of the latest motion-based peripherals—PlayStation Move, Wii MotionPlus, and Kinect—as well as 3D technology. Juan Martín Del Potro, Fernando Gonzalez, and five other new pros have been added to the lineup, which includes such luminaries as Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer. A new World Tour career has been beefed up with new off-court decisions, and a new Online Mode will include tournaments and other modes for casual and competitive players.
Square Enix has announced that Agent 47 will be making his return to the 360 and PC in Hitman Absolution. Currently in development at IO Interactive A/S, Absolution finds 47 being hunted by both the police and his former compatriots as he unravels a dark conspiracy.
I was just saying the other day that the Apple handhelds needed more Bruce Campbellness. Backflip Studios must have heard me (my cries traveling through time, obviously) as Army of Darkness: Defense will be available for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad this Thursday. The tower defense game based on the 1992 classic film (if there ever was a truer description) puts players in the boots of Bruce ‘Ash’ Campbell at the moment when the horde of skeletons and monsters breach the castle walls. Ash will be able to wield a variety of weapons, as well as call in allies to lend a hand, such as swordsmen, knights, and archers.
Good Old Games is gearing up for the release of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Digital Premium Edition with one hell of a bargain: the original release for $4.99. Yep, a DRM-free download of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut for less than five bucks. The GOG version includes a game guide, soundtracks, artbook, and a 2011 calendar, though the latter may or may not be your cup of tea as it features “the sexiest women from the game.” The deal lasts until May 24, so be sure to get it in time to play through Geralt’s adventures before the sequel lands on May 17.
Bethesda Softworks and Splash Damage’s Brink is now available for the 360, PC, and PS3. The class-based first-person shooter features “dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system.” As a member of either the Security or the Resistance, players must battle for control of the Ark, a self-sufficient habitat that houses those who have escaped the Earth’s rising oceans.
