SEGA has announced C-Smash VRS – an updated version of the classic Dreamcast sports game, Cosmic Smash. C-Smash VRS is being built for Sony’s new PlayStation VR2 headset. SEGA says there’s a demo coming out in March for the game where players will get to experience some of the gameplay modes available in the full release.
If you weren’t around to experience the original Cosmic Smash game, it was Pong-like sports game where players would swing their rackets to hit a ball in order to break tiles on the other end of the stage. The stronger your swing, the faster the shot would fly. So basically, it is like indoor squash against blocks.

The new version called C-Smash VRS aims to deliver the classic experience but with the use of VR2. Players will hit the ball, likely with a swing thanks to the PlayStation VR Sense Controllers, in order to break bricks. There’s also a bit of a puzzle behind the gameplay too as users will have to figure out how to hit blocks which might be hidden behind obstacles.
SEGA says the name, C-Smash VRS stands for Cosmic Smash Versus. This means there’s also going to be some sort of competitive mode behind the game. SEGA hasn’t detailed how this works yet but the developer confirmed C-Smash VRS will include a solo mode, co-op and versus at launch.
As for the demo, PlayStation VR2 owners can download and play a snippet of the game starting on 23 March. However, there’s no release date yet for the full game. Watch the trailer below.
