Sauce Digital to make tennis game

Exclusive news for you AppDopers. Sauce Digital – developers of Killer Pool, Nano Rally ant Touch Soccer 3D – will next be releasing a Tennis game.

There is no official name yet and no screenshots, but the game is well into production. Its 3D, with very accurate physics, and no… it wont have the same control system as Touch Soccer 3D.

The game hopes to address the lack of iPhone specific Tennis games, and hence the lack of really good ones. The release date is set for mid April.
