Hi,

Since shuouma is working hard in resurrecting the online modes of some sega sports games (WSB2k2 is just the beginning :)), i was wondering if the online mode of the jap version of Virtua tennis could be something also feasible ?
Might it be coded the same way or is it something completely different ?

I'll be all over Virtua Tennis/Power Smash if it comes back online. Virtua Tennis is easily one of the most fun and addictive Dreamcast games out there, Especially in multiplayer. :D

Yeah, it is kind of surprising the online play wasn't in the western version give how popular tennis is in the EU and USA.

Damn, I had no idea the JP version had online play. What the hell was Sega thinking not putting online play into the US/EU versions!!

Thanks for the info, then I guess this should be considered as a bad news :(

The good news is the game is pretty much identical to the other versions and is completely in english.

Only Network mode is missing from the menu of VT EU/USA. I actually wonder if the mode is still in the western version but just hidden from the main menu.

Even though it would be funny to have this mode available in the menu of your us or pal version, it will not help to revive the online mode anyway..
