Grand Slam Tennis Wii Cheats
Grand Slam Tennis for the Wii has been announced by EA Sports as the first tennis game to be headlined by tennis legend John McEnroe, who is known for his enigmatic personality both on and off the court.
This new game will be the start of an all-new tennis series for EA which is being developed by EA Canada in Vancouver, B.C. for a June 16th, 2009 release date exclusively for Wii.
One of the greatest tennis players of all-time, McEnroe won seven Grand Slams, including three at Wimbledon, and amassed 77 singles titles. He stopped playing singles on the main ATP tour at the end of 1992 but has remained heavily involved in tennis, playing on seniors tours and providing television commentary for a number of networks at the Grand Slams. McEnroe was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999. Off the court, he hosted his own talk show and written an autobiography, titled “You Cannot Be Serious”, a phrase he made famous through his on-court outbursts during his career.
EA did not launch into very specific details, but they did say that they are aiming “EA Sports Grand Slam Tennis” to deliver “the deepest tennis experience” for the Wii. Naturally the game will use Gesture Controls via the Wii Remote and Nunchuck to make you feel like you are actually playing tennis by making motions including forehand and backhand moves. The game will also be one of the first videogames to use the Wii MotionPlus accessory for true one-to-one motion for the most realistic tennis feel yet. And it will be even more realistic with the added shot depth and precise ball placement found in the game.
“It’s great that EA SPORTS has embraced tennis into its family of games. I think it’s a solid sign the sport is thriving and I hope it will continue to generate more interest and excitement in tennis, ” said McEnroe. “Having Wimbledon exclusive to this game is huge because Wimbledon is such a special tournament, for the entire sport of tennis and for me personally.”
