Hi-Fi Rush is available now on the Xbox Store and on PC via Steam. The Steam page describes the game as follows:
Feel the beat as wannabe rockstar Chai and his ragtag team of allies rebel against an evil robotics enhancement megacorp with raucous rhythm combat! From Tango Gameworks, the studio that brought you The Evil Within and Ghostwire:Tokyo (no, really) comes Hi-Fi RUSH, an all-new action game where the characters, world and combat stylishly sync to the music!
Additionally, the Arcade Challenge! Update! is available on both Xbox and PC. The update includes two modes: BPM Rush and Power Up! Tower Up! The former functions as a sort of horde mode. With every enemy that is defeated, the speed of combat and movement increases dramatically, until the player is operating on nothing but instinct.
The latter functions similarly to the Rhythm Tower mode added after players beat the game for the first time. But unlike Rhythm Tower, all of the player’s abilities have been taken away. With every few waves that are completed by the player, they must choose what abilities to reinvest in. With these abilities, the protagonist, Chai must fight against some of the toughest enemies in the game once more.
Lastly, Hi-Fi Rush is available now on the Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam. Good Smile Company will reveal more information about the 808 Nendoroid’s release date in the coming weeks and months.
