How do you feel about the idea of playing a Dreamcast game on a new platform in 2023? Well, if you just can’t leave your blinds, Bebo page, Badger Badger Mushroom song, or the rest of the zeros behind, you’re probably very excited about the Cosmic Smash revival coming to PlayStation VR2 on June 23rd.
If you haven’t caught the game, it’s basically an unlikely mash-up of squash, tennis and breakthrough, complete with great dance music (it came out in the early 00s, though, so that makes sense). After an impressive 22 years, the iconic Dreamcast title is back, screaming and screaming to be reimagined for PSVR2 – very fitting for such a game.
And you don’t just have to take my word for it. Matt Golledge and Adam Hassan – tennis pros and world number one touch tennis players – showed how attractive the game is to anyone involved with tennis. Of course, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to use the C-Smash VRS, but it probably helps. Watch their gameplay experience in the video above.
This reimagining of the game has a slightly different name than the original Dreamcast title. C-Smash VRS – yes, VRS stands for both VR and versus, because it’s so clever – was created by veteran VR studio Wolf & Wood, who previously worked with various licenses and did a pretty stellar job of wrangling everything into a small the world that lives before your eyes.
