NCS Product  Synopsis
Update: February 25, 2010
«©NCSX» Anybody can play the sport of tennis but playing the game well is another matter entirely. Everybody can play virtual tennis however and play it well without even leaving the comfort of the futon. The red one with the beaded seat.

Developer Clap Hanz of Minna no Golf fame directs their design conventions and creative animus at another sport and comes up with yet another winner. Minna no Tennis follows the simplicity and elegance of Minna no Golf except players now swing a racket instead of a nine iron. Upon starting the game, a rotary menu appears which allows access into a single-player Challenge Mode, a multi-player Minna Mode, Training Mode, Options, and Data.

Minna no Tennis Portable is Sony's latest PS2-to-PSP conversion which features singles-play, doubles-play, and a training mode to get gamers up to speed. To get a feel for the mechanics of the game, the training sessions test a player's skill by lobbing tennis balls via automated ball launcher. When returning the serve, portions of the court are highlighted and designated as the areas to aim for. When swinging the racket, the analog nub or D-pad may be maneuvered to aim the ball. The strength of the swing may also be controlled by pressing one of three buttons. The TRIANGLE serves up an overhead lob, the CIRCLE thrashes out a topspin ground stroke, and the X-BUTTON may be tapped for a weak slice shot which sends the ball sailing low and slow. Features in the PSP game include new cast members, customization for the tennis players, and a multi-player ad hoc mode for singles or doubles matches.
