Top Spin 4, the latest iteration of the Top Spin tennis simulation video game franchise, will feature professional tennis athletes Rafael Nadal, Anna Ivanovic and Andy Murray on its cover. For the first time in a decade Andre Agassi will feature in an interactive entertainment experience for the current console generation.
“It’s great to be included in Top Spin 4 with such a unique line up of tennis players, past and present,” said 23 year old Andy Murray, British No. 1 and World No. 5 player. “It's exciting that 2K Sports is giving gamers the chance to face off against different pros in realistic and detailed interactive matches.”
In development at 2K Czech, Top Spin 4 brings the competitive action of tennis to life like never before with redesigned controls, jaw-dropping player models and enhanced TV-style presentation elements. Each of the title’s top athletes and legendary pros will be equipped with 2K Sports’ Signature Style animations, including player-specific swing styles and behavioral AI, custom celebrations and outfits.
“Top Spin 4 does a phenomenal job capturing the unique authenticity and highly competitive skills of these 25 world-class athletes,” said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. “When playing Top Spin 4, we wanted consumers to feel they are playing more than a tennis game, we wanted them to feel like they are in a world title prize fight.”
