Sega announced today via its message board that Virtua Tennis 2009
will miss its original May
launch date. We previously speculated
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.
