Xbox announces Hi-Fi Rush and is now releasing it on Xbox Game Pass

TANGO Gameworks, known for The Evil Within and Tokyo Ghostwire, announced and released a new game on the same day.

Called Hi-Fi Rush, it’s a complete departure from the team’s usual work and takes on a bombastic cartoon style.

Far from its horror roots, this is a rhythm-based action game that features platforming, melee, and big boss combat.

Rather than slamming into enemies, Hi-Fi Rush encourages you to time your attacks to the beat of the soundtrack.

This increases your attack power and also increases the chances of landing your hits.

Each hit also adds music to the soundtrack that blends in with the background music.

Those afraid of the rhythm elements have a number of accessibility features to help you get in time with the beat.

At the bottom is a beat bar that will keep you in time like Crypt of the Necrodancer.

You also have a cat that will help you and will stand close to your character to help you keep the tact.

Adopting a cel-shaded art style, Hi-Fi Rush is set in a futuristic world full of robots.

Even your character, Chai, has a Hi-Fi system built into his chest and a robotic arm.

Hi-Fi Rush wasn’t announced until today, although rumors have suggested we’ll see more during Developer Direct.

The title was first trademarked in 2020, but the team hadn’t released any footage, screenshots, or details about the game.

The brand was all but forgotten until yesterday when rumors surfaced that a new game would be showing in the showcase.

In a bold move, Xbox released Hi-Fi Rush on the same day as the announcement.

It’s already available in Xbox Game Pass for Xbox Series X|S and PC.

If people want to buy the game for themselves, it’s available now too.

This isn’t just the demo. Xbox has released the full game which is available today.
