Feral Interactive announced Thursday plans to release a Mac version of Sega Superstars Tennis on October 17, 2013. The game will be available for $14.99 through download services including the Mac App Store, Feral's web site and elsewhere.

Sega Superstars Tennis features 16 characters from Sega video games, each equipped with special moves. Sonic the Hedgehog can use super speed, for example, while his mortal enemy, Dr. Eggman, features bomb clusters. AiAi, one of the lovable monkeys from Super Monkey Ball, has banana-shaped curve shots.

Sega Superstars Tennis supports shared-screen multiplayer for up to four players, and has quick match and tournament modes, mini games and more. It also supports the use of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game controllers.
