Japanese developer Tango Gameworks has built its reputation on survival horror games over the last few years with The Evil Within series, but its next game is going to be something very different. True to recent leaks, the developer grabbed the spotlight at the recent Xbox and Bethesda Developer_Direct to announce Hi-Fi Rush.
Sporting a stylized animated aesthetic, Hi-Fi Rush makes it abundantly clear even at first glance that Tango is going for a unique experience. Players will step into the shoes of a wanna rockstar in a sci-fi city, with the game focused first and foremost on combat. The twist here is that the game is a completely rhythm-focused game, with every hit, parry, dodge, enemy attack, and other actions during fights adding beats to the music.
Players will take on bosses (which will bring licensed music tracks) and traverse a variety of levels, each with a different musical theme. Companion characters will also accompany you throughout the story, allowing for special combo attacks.
And here’s the biggest surprise- Hi-Fi Rush is out today. Tango, Bethesda, and Microsoft have shadow dropped the action title for Xbox Series X/S and PC. It is also available via Game Pass. Check out its reveal below, and get more details on the game through here.
