We're pleased to see that the bizarre Sega-history minigames are intact in the DS release of Sega Superstars Tennis. Here, Ulala, a dancing reporter from a satellite-based TV station in a retro-futuristic musical world, is taking a break from rescuing Michael Jackson from TV-faced aliens to play Spa...

Sega Superstars Tennis' joyful habit of meshing together franchises such as Jet Set Radio, Samba de Amigo, Space Channel 5, and OutRun has already left us smitten with the game, even though it's just tennis. Indeed, our extreme fondness for the title meant it only hurt more to hear that this cele...

We know that Sega Superstars Tennis is a tennis game with a bunch of Sega folks in it, but until now we haven't known much else. How would the Wii controls work? What kind of special powers can each character use? CVG sat down with Sumo Digital to discuss the Wii version and get some specifics. Fi...

If, like us, Sega Superstars Tennis has driven you into a tennis frenzy (a "tenzy"), you will be very happy to gawk at these new screenshots. If you're not into tennis, but all about Sega (which we were until Sega convinced us fully) you can enjoy picking out characters in the background of the Je...

Know who we'd like to see developing on the Wii? Tetsuya Mizuguchi, that's who. Some of his games would work beautifully on Nintendo's console. We can totally picture ourselves playing through a motion-based Space Channel 5, or using the Wii Remote to point and shoot in Rez. Wii owners who also hap...

Come on, Sega. We're doing our very best to love your new mascot tennis game, and for the most part it's been quite easy. Putting wonderful Sega characters into a wonderful Sega tennis game (Virtua Tennis) is exactly what we'd ask for if we were asked, and if we were clever enough to think of it. ...

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. Th...

The trailer for Sega Superstars Tennis. This thing is brutally insane. Beat's all skating up a tree and flying 50 feet into the air to return a shot, Dr. Eggman's got multiple bionic rackets, and Sonic does a loop at super-speed to build up momentum for his return, after rescuing Amigo from a poten...

Oh. Em. Gee. Okay, that Start sign looks awfully familiar. And those "left turn" signs? The palm trees? Yep, a closer look confirms it: Sega Superstars Tennis will have an OutRun stage, hopefully with majestic red Ferraris roaring past as you play. For veteran Sega fans such as ourselves, this ki...

You know buttons, right? Those clicky things on either side of the touchscreen? New screenshots of Sega Superstars Tennis show the view on the bottom screen, which contains nothing more than a scoreboard. There are no icons to tap, no moves to select, and definitely no predefined areas to rub. Just ...

We freaked out when we saw the first Wii screenshots of Sega Superstars Tennis, because of a large amount of Jet Set Radio-related content. Well, it turns out that the DS version also features Beat as a playable character, along with a Shibuya Bus Terminal-located tennis court. Jet Set Radio is one ...

While competing together at this year's Olympics, it seems some excellent business advice passed from Mario to Sonic, the end result manifesting in the newly announced Sega Superstars Tennis. It's-a Mario Tennis, but with-a Sonic! Mario's sales pitch serve must have left quite the impression, as S...

Hey, Sonic's already appearing in another sports game! Sega announced today that they're making a new tennis game for just about every system, called Sega Superstars Tennis.
