C-Smash VRS Getting Free Non-VR Update for PS5 Version

The futuristic racket sports VR game C-Smash VRS is officially offering up a non-VR mode for fans to check out later this year.

RapidEyeMovers and Wolf & Wood announced on Thursday that an update to the game would arrive in the summer, introducing Cosmic Smash VRS – New Dimension. The new update will allow players to dive into the game without a PS VR2 headset, and play in a 3rd person mode.

Players can preorder the game now on the PlayStation Store, and those who have a PS VR2 can still play the game now in its original format. A more concrete release date for the update is likely to come as we get closer to the summer.

What is C-Smash VRS?

C-Smash VRS is based on the 2001 title that originally came to Sega NAOMI arcade systems before being ported to the Dreamcast. And while the arcade version did at least come to Europe, the Dreamcast port never made its way out of Japan. Cosmic Smash acts as a sort of combination between the sport squash and the video game Breakout, and has players trying to clear tiles in various levels by hitting a ball back and forth against them.

According to director Jörg Tittel last year, the idea to reimagine the obscure Sega game came during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, he teamed up with VR pioneers Wolf & Wood — which has developed a handful of VR projects, most notably 2017’s The Exorcist: Legion VR — as well as designers Cory Schmitz (Rez Infinite, Sound Shapes) and Arkotype (Polytron), musicians Ken Ishii (Rez Infinite) and Danalogue (The Comet is Coming, Soccer 96), art director Rob Davis (The Motherless Oven), and sound designer Dan Pugsley (Alba: A Wildlife Adventure).
