The recently released C-Smash VRS continues to expand. A new collaboration with UNKLE features a brand-new level for the game, built around a pumping new track. A ‘reconstruction’ of Antimatter, one of DJ Ken Ishii’s original tracks for the game, has been recorded by UNKLE.

C-Smash VRS is a reimagining of SEGA’s Dreamcast and arcade icon Cosmic Smash. The game has been built exclusively for VR, with an emphasis on online versus gameplay. Combining a low-gravity form of squash with timed block-breaking challenges, C-Smash VRS brings together racket sports and action puzzle gameplay. Dashing, ducking and performing intense shots and trick smashes, players will journey through dozens of levels of fun and fitness.

Players can either play alone or with a friend, exploring a variety of online versus modes. Soon, C-Smash VRS will welcome a number of new modes. According to the developers, these will enhance multiplayer and solo experiences. Updates include an Infinity fitness mode, Co-Op, a much-requested Music Player and more.

UNKLE Takes on the Cosmic Smash

“Together with collaborator Miink, I wanted to create something with the energy of the original track and score, keeping it within the electronic world,” says UNKLE’s James Lavelle. “I really like the way the original track sped up, so I wanted to explore that idea of building intensity in a similar way through increasing speed. Ken Ishii’s music is rooted in techno, so I took inspiration from that genre in this reconstruction. This track is a teaser for bigger things to come between C-Smash VRS and UNKLE.”

Original dynamic tracks by DJ Ken Ishii (Rez Infinite) and synth master Danalogue (front man of The Comet is Coming and Soccer 96) – and now UNKLE – bring a pulse to the game’s striking environments. Produced and published by RapidEyeMovers and developed by Wolf & Wood, C-Smash VRS is the second collaboration between director Jörg Tittel and Wolf & Wood. Their first, The Last Worker was released in March on VR, consoles and PC.
