Sega announced today via its message board that Virtua Tennis 2009 will miss its original May launch date. We previously speculated about just such a delay, noting that retailers had the title scheduled for June 2. According to Sega blogger RubyEclipse, "I believe the focus is on polishing up the Wii version, so I'm down for that as it means a better game in the end."

Later in the message board thread, RubyEclipse says, "
Right now the goal is still June 2nd," but suggests that a further delay of a week or two is possible. That would mean that the Wii version would come out at the same time as the MotionPlus peripheral, and not a week before as currently planned.
