On This Day In Gaming History!: March 18th, 2018

Sega Superstars Tennis was a tennis video game developed by Sumo Digital and published by Sega. The game was released on March 18th, 2008, and includes sixteen playable characters and ten courts from various Sega franchises.

In total, fifteen Sega franchises are represented in the game. Each character has its own unique ‘special attack’ giving the player more chance of scoring a point. For example: Gilius throws a magic bottle in the air and covers the opponent’s side with thunderbolts, if they touch one the character will be stunned for a brief moment, or Sonic’s signature “Super Sonic” attack, which causes the tennis ball to zig-zag in various directions around the court when he hits the ball.
