Tennis World Tour 2 | Preview | Switch

by Danny Bivens

More tennis, more realism coming to the Nintendo Switch soon.

Although the original Tennis World Tour definitely met with...well, let's just say mixed reviews, the series is back for another swing with the direct sequel Tennis World Tour 2. The game is already out on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC, releasing on September 22. Of course, being a Nintendo focused channel, we're currently waiting for the Switch version which is due out on October 15. I didn't get the chance to play the original Tennis World Tour, but am definitely interested after learning that Big Ant Studios, the team behind AO Tennis 2, is in charge of development. In case you missed it, the Switch version of AO2 wasn't perfect, but it was definitely a lot more fun that I expected, offering a lot of customization and some pretty solid gameplay. You can check out our written review of that here (and the video version below).

Tennis World Tour 2 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up and features tons of new athletes as well as a number of other updates. Playing doubles with up to four players locally or online, better animations, more game modes and more courts are all here to try out. One of the things that I'm most excited to see in action are the differences between the different courts. World Tour 2, of course, features a variety of different playing surfaces, but they can actually play a part in the performance of your athletes. Not only that, but things like weather can also have an effect on your play. It definitely sounds pretty interesting. We'll be sharing more of our thoughts on the game as soon as we get our hands on the Switch version. In the mean-time, be sure to check out the gameplay reveal, features and launch trailers below. Also be sure to check out our video review of AO Tennis 2 below to get a good idea of the kind of work that Big Ant Studios can do on the Switch.
