Sega's Virtua Tennis Challenge takes first service on the iOS court tomorrow

Virtua Tennis Challenge is ready to take its first service on the App Store, having just stepped onto the iOS court.

Laboured sporting metaphors aside, this is the first chance for Apple customers to get to - ahem - grips with the most recent entry in Sega's tennis franchise.

Released for the Xperia Play back in March, the game's excellent animations and tight controls earned it a Gold Award from our reviewer.

Naturally, we're dying to see how the game performs on a touchscreen-only device, and whether the absence of physical controls will be an issue.

Ace features

As for the game's content, you'll be delighted to read that Virtua Tennis Challenge's hefty roster of 50 players; 18 stadia; and Exhibition, World Tour, and Multiplayer modes have all arrived intact after the transition from Android to iOS.

If you fancy lobbing some cash at Virtua Tennis Challenge, you will find it on the App Store from midnight this evening for around £2.99 / $4.99.
