Sega appears to be teasing a new instalment of its classic Japanese arcade and Dreamcast game Cosmic Smash.
Given the name of the URL, it’s possible the project being teased is for VR. Wolf & Wood, the British studio behind VR title The Last Worker, also retweeted the teaser site on Monday, along with several of its developers.
Cosmic Smash was released in arcades and Dreamcast in 2001, described as “a futuristic combination of Squash and Breakout”.
The game places players in a series of rooms filled with blocks, and arms them with a racquet. The aim, is to use the racquet to smack balls off the blocks to make them all disappear.
Players can pull off special smashes to help them clear the blocks quicker, but that comes with the trade-off of making the ball move faster.
The game features futuristic visuals and a psychedelic soundtrack, similar to those used in Sega’s teaser site. The site also features a pong mini-game which browsers can play.
Cosmic Smash’s unique visual style wasn’t limited to the software itself. The game’s packaging was an attractive transparent DVD-style box, as opposed to a typical CD case.
