Sega Superstars Tennis demo

Ah, there's nothing like the smell of a fresh demo on a Friday morning. Today's Marketplace offering is none other than Sega Superstars Tennis. The demo offers single player and local versus multiplayer. The game brings together plenty of Sega "superstars" (Amigo? A superstar? Really?) for some friendly tennis action and tennis based mini-games. Taking a cue from Nintendo, the game focuses infuses typical tennis mechanics with fantasy court settings and the ability to enter Superstar Mode, which grants special powers to each character. The demo doesn't last very long, but new features are unlocked through successive play-throughs, so give it a shot.

Superstars Tennis demo headed to the XBLM

The SEGA marketing folks just announced that a SEGA Superstars Tennis demo will be headed to the Xbox Live Marketplace in the near future, as soon as it passes Microsoft certification. Though, the demo may be end up being restricted to North American Live subscribers seeing that such restrictions have been implemented on the PSN Store where the demo has already been released. SEGA also felt the need to rub some salt in our scabbed over Bloodshot demo sore by mentioned that the Condemned 2: Bloodshot demo should be making an XBLM release soon'ish as well. To date, the Bloodshot demo has been "coming soon" for over two weeks. Anyone willing to bet that we don't see either SEGA promised demo until mid-April?

Shipping this week: roll them bones edition

It's sort of a lonely week for new releases. It's not that we aren't seeing anything worthwhile, though. Nope, this week we have the much awaited sequel to Rainbow Six Vegas, sagely titled Rainbow Six Vegas 2 to in order to nullify any confusion. Remember, this is the last time you'll be getting your 6 on in Vegas, so get it while the gettin's good (alternately, you could wait until it goes down in price and get it while the gettin's better). Also releasing this week is the latest curiosity from Sega, Sega Superstars Tennis. Alas, it seems Sega has more trouble wedging its beloved characters into the sports genre than Nintendo does, as the game has thus far received only fair to middling reviews.

Video: Sega Superstars Tennis mini-games

GameTrailers has posted a handful of new Sega Superstars Tennis videos. It looks like Sega's new tennis title will come packed with various mini-games. The two latest videos show off both a ring collecting Sonic mini-game and a another -- the objective of which we can't quite discern -- based on ChuChu Rocket. The games look entertaining enough, but let's just hope the tennis is up to snuff. After all, mini-games are mini for a reason. Having said that, we pray that there's a Space Channel 5 dancing mini-game with "Space Michael."

Video: Sega Superstars Tennis makes its debut!

SEGA just released a Sega Superstars Tennis debut trailer today and we'll admit it. This happy, fun trailer instantly "made" our Sunday.

The debut trailer doesn't show one lick of actual gameplay, but does give us other informative niblets all while being an entertaining tennis spectacle. The trailer does confirm that SEGA characters Aiai (Super Monkey Ball), Beat (Jet Set Radio), Ulala (Space Channel 5), Amigo (Samba de Amigo), Nights (Nights), Dr. Eggman (Sonic the Hedgehog) and our blue Sonic the Hedgehog to be included in Superstars Tennis. We also suspect other "mystery" characters to be included or unlockable, because that's usually how these games go. So, enjoy the Sega Superstars Tennis debut trailer and be sure to watch for Amigo's introduction. His stone, expressionless face creeped us out, but the sound of his maracas made us smile for some reason.

No fault, SEGA Superstars Tennis announced

In news that can be filed under the "where the heck did this come from?" category is a new tennis game from SEGA aimed at competing with Nintendo's cartoony fun Mario Tennis franchise. SEGA Superstars Tennis is set to release on all major platforms and will feature a mix of SEGA characters including Sonic the Hedgehog and Ulala all with their own special power-ups and abilities playing on SEGA themed courts like Green Hill Zone and Samba de Amigo's Carnival Park. Seeing the Mario Tennis similarities yet? Superstars Tennis will also feature the standard assortment of gameplay options including exhibition, tournament and online play modes. Be sure to watch for Sonic's crazy good acing skills to land on the Xbox 360 early next year.
