Hi-Fi Rush is a new Rhythm Brawler from developer Tango Gameworks, and it’s available now

Yesterday, the first rumors surfaced that Shinji Mikami’s Tango Gameworks was preparing to announce a new project titled Hi-Fi Rush, and today during the first Xbox and Bethesda Developer Direct, that’s exactly what happened. Hi-Fi Rush is quite a departure from the type of games Tango is known for like The Evil Within and Ghostwire: Tokyo, as it’s a bright, cell-shaded action rhythm game. The game assigns players to beat robotic enemies to the beat of the background music, which includes some licensed tracks from the likes of Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys and more. Perhaps most exciting of all, Hi-Fi Rush is available… right now! You can watch the intro deep-dive trailer for the game below.

Looks pretty fun! Do you need to know more? Here are Hi-Fi Rush’s key features…

  • Chai versus the world – Branded ‘defective’ after a shady corporate experiment mistakenly melts a music player to his heart, Chai must now fight for his freedom in a sleek animated world where everything – platforming, enemy attacks and even the colorful gags and banter – is synchronized to the beat.
  • Open the Mosh Pit! – Take on armies of corporate drones (read: actual robots) in satisfying, rhythm-enhanced combat. Time your moves to perform flashy Beat Hits, hard hitting special abilities and even combo attacks with your allies! Want to show off? Go ahead and tap into the beat to boost your skills and earn those coveted S-rank scores.
  • Rowdy Rebels vs. Bad bosses – Lead a team of colorful teammates and take the fight to the heart of a, er, heartless corporation. Take down the heads of every department, from production to marketing to finance, each more ready to protect the company’s bottom line than the last in over-the-top battle sequences accompanied by their own music tracks!
  • Grab your headphones – Tap your toes to a great mix of original music, as well as songs by Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy, The Joy Formidable and more! Want to show off your skills to a live streaming audience? Don’t worry: Hi-Fi Rush includes a streamer-friendly alternative audio mode to prevent you from broadcasting copyrighted music.

Hi-Fi Rush is now available on PC and Xbox Series X/S (including Game Pass).
