The TopSpin 2K25 developers have revealed some additional details and the process behind capturing the signature style and animations of some of the players in the game. The blog dives into the types of signature animations that will be featured in the game and how they were created.

For example, you’ll be able to recognize Roger Federer’s stylish backhand, Serena William’s devastating serve, or Iga Swiatek’s powerful forehand animation, just to name a few. In addition to these animations that aim at recreating the unique style of specific pros, we also captured a variety of animations that can be shared by multiple pros with similar swinging motions. Players can also use their 2K Account to add signature-styles to their MyPlayers to make them customizable, not only visually, but also in the way they move and hit the ball.

Certain signature styles will be available at launch, enabling players to begin refining their playstyle immediately. New signature-style animations will be introduced with each new Season. Players can use virtual currency to acquire some of their preferred signature styles from the Pro Shop, while additional styles will be unlockable through the Premium Centre Court Pass. By the end of Season 6, TopSpin 2K25 will feature over twice the number of signature styles found in TopSpin 4.

In case you missed it, 2K recently revealed a new gameplay video and blog for TopSpin 2K25, offering an in-depth overview, officially licensed tournaments, venues, physics, mechanics and other additional details. The team announced the full roster and licensed apparel brands just a couple of weeks ago.

TopSpin 2K25 is scheduled to release on April 26 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC via Steam. The Standard and Grand Slam Editions will feature Roger Federer and Serena Williams on the cover, while the Deluxe Edition will have Carlos Alcaraz, Iga Świątek and Francis Tiafoe. Early access begins on April 23 for players ordering the Deluxe or Grand Slam Editions.
