Date Kimiko no Virtual Tennis (伊達公子のバーチャルテニス?, "Date Kimiko's Virtual Tennis") is a tennis video game released for the Super Famicom that simulates the world of professional women's tennis. It was endorsed by the Japanese professional tennis player Kimiko Date.

Gameplay[edit]

The final results of a typical match are presented as a news article.

The object is to become one of the best female tennis players; like Date Kimiko. In the world tournament mode, there is an elaborate story line to participate in as the player tries to become the world's most premier tennis champ.[6]

In addition to the world tournament mode, there is also an exhibition and a "normal" tournament mode. Passwords using Japanese characters are required to resume a player's progress within the course of the world tournament. Tournaments themselves are ranked in a series of letter grades to help determine the strength of the opponents.

The level system in order from lowest to highest is: E (mediocre), D (below average), C (average), B (good), A (excellent), and finally S (super). There is a chance that clouds can bring rain which delays matches; causing both of the players' stamina meters to fully recharge themselves.
